The boys of Bantam LA kicked off the weekend with some tricks & treats-ahead of Halloween . Friday was an evening of team shenanigans where copious amounts of sugar were consumed by all. Saturday evening, the boys hit the road to face off against Hagerstown. The team fired up the tempo & shots on goal, dominating the Bulldogs in the first period. After a lucky bounce, the Bulldogs led 1-0. Shortly after, Freeze answered with a stealthy goal to tie it up. Towards the end of the second period, their opponent starting to quickly catch up with the shots. Despite tieing up the shots on goal, the Freeze lost 4-1.

Sunday, the boys welcomed the Capital City Vipers to Frederick for a friendly non-league game. The Freeze found their groove quickly, affording many teammates with goal scoring opportunities. A total of 55 shots on goal were exactly what the boys needed to secure the win 10-3.
