JGold: Playing for more than just the sport.

This year the Junior Gold hockey team is playing for more than just the sport, they are also playing for Devin Delaney. Delaney used to play on the team last year and he passed away before the season began. This season they played really hard and went 19-3-2 in their regular season and they’re ranked first in their division. They are the first Junior Gold team in Burnsville to finish first in their division

The Junior Gold boys are hoping to make a strong run in playoffs. Their first playoff game is in Blaine, MN at 8:20 pm, they will be playing the 6th seeded Eastview Lighting. With Devin watching over the team, they hope to make it to the state tournament, and win it for Devin and the rest of the Burnsville community.
