The North Bay Trappers may have enjoyed the holiday break but they get back into full swing Tuesday with a challenging schedule to begin 2005.

The Trappers are on the road Tuesday night as they take on the Rayside-Balfour Sabrecats.

Tournament action
On Wednesday the North Bay team heads East to take part in the Kiwanis Midget Tournament in Gatineau, Quebec, considered one of Canada’s top midget “AAA” tournaments.

The Trappers will start the tourney at 9:30 Wednesday night as they take on the St. John Maple Leafs. Then on Thursday they meet the Quinte Red Devils at 5:45 p.m. On Friday they clash with the Cornwall Thunder at 6:30 p.m.

Where they stand
The Trappers currently sit in 6th in the 9 team league with 10 wins 11 losses, 3 ties and one overtime loss.

While the Trappers have showed a significant improvement over last season, Head Coach Larry Keenan still isn’t satisfied with the Trappers achievements so far this season, but he’s optimistic about what can be achieved in the second half.

“I think we’ll be a better team, I think we’ll get better results because we’ve been working a little harder, we still have some weak spots and we still have a lot of work to do in our end, sometimes when we get running around, and most of the time, we are running around because we are out of position and you’ve got to have that discipline to say, oh, I got to stop and hold my position,” said the Veteran Head Coach.

The Trappers finished the first half of the year on a positive note, as they grabbed 3 of a possible 4 points in their last 2 contests before the Christmas break, a road win against Valley East and a tie at home versus Kirkland Lake.
