Junior hockey: N.H. Fighting Spirit look to extend lead

The New Hampshire Fighting Spirit will be looking to extend their lead in the Eastern Conference as they take on division opponent the East Coast Minutemen Sunday at the Laconia Ice Arena. While the Minutemen have yet to tally their first win of the season they have added a few players to their roster and have been playing more inspired hockey as of late. "We are in a tough situation heading into this weekend, our next three games are against the Minutemen and we need to be prepared for each one", said associate head coach Ben Tefft. "Any time you face a team that is desperate to get things going in the right direction it's always a tough matchup. The Minutemen would love nothing more than to knock off the first place team to grab their first win of the season and it is something we need to be aware of. We have to play our style of hockey and give the Minutemen the respect they deserve or we may find ourselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard", said


In other league news the Fighting Spirit's Mike Heffernan (Brockton, Mass.) had a solid showing over the weekend and was given the honor of being named the Offensive Player of the Week for the NA3EHL. Heffernan compiled 5 points over the showcase weekend to help the Spirit rack up two more wins on the season.

Sunday afternoon's contest is at the Laconia Ice Arena and will begin at 1:45 with puck drop at 2 p.m. The Minutemen will be back in Laconia for the Spirit's first midweek game of the season on Wednesday November 19 with pregame at 6:15 p.m. Visit the Fighting Spirit's website for up to date information including stats and schedule, www.fightingspirithockey.com

Flag football tournament in Laconia over Thanksgiving weekend

On Thanksgiving weekend, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 28 and 29, the Lakes Region Flag Football League and Laconia Sachems Football will be holding the first annual Turkey Bowl Flag Football Tournament at the Laconia High School's Fitzgerald Field.

This two day tournament is hosted by Laconia Sachems Football and Lakes Region Flag Football. There will be two divisions, an 18+ and a 30+ division. Registration is $300 per team with a maximum roster size of 12 players. Proceeds go to Laconia High School's new weight room to benefit students and faculty and also go to the LRAAC (Lakes Region Athletic Advancement complex), a proposed regulation-size indoor field enabling children and adults of the Lakes Region and beyond to stay active year round.

Games are non-contact and are played 6 on 6 with a 20 minute running game clock per half. Each team will play a minimum of 4 games over the two day tournament. On Friday each team will play 3 games to establish seeding and the elimination games begin on Saturday.

This tournament is not limited just to the LRFFL summer men's league teams and players. Organizers are reaching out across the Lakes Region (and beyond) in an effort to reach more players for this tournament and raise substantial funds.

It is not necessary to have a full roster to register as roster moves can be made up to Thanksgiving day. Register on lrffl.com by clicking on the register tab.
