England Under-13s face crunch clash

Havering’s Brad Windebank, Ewan Hill, Daniel Hitchings, Danny Jackson and Tommy Huggett will look to keep their World Pee-Wee Championship dreams alive late tonight.

The five local schoolboys are in the England under-13 ice hockey squad that faces a good Benelux Select team at the Pepsi Colisee in Quebec, having beaten Angers Ducs 6-0 in the previous round.

England had slipped to a 3-1 defeat against San Diego Junior Gulls in their first match of the International C Division competition, but victory over Angers ensured their remained in the hunt.

And they go into tonight’s match boosted by a battling 1-1 draw with the Bathurst Academy side yesterday.
