San Francisco Sabercats Bantam B Team
The San Francisco Sabercats are heating up. This Bantam B team recently went 3-1 in a in the Wine Country Face-Off which was good enough for a second place finish overall. The squad drew several compliments from all of the coaches at the tournament for their clean play and winning spirit. The Sabercats were exciting to watch and brought a level of intensity and fun to the ice each time they played. Way to use teamwork and discipline to get that winning edge!
