    You can tell a lot from the team statistics and Bulgaria's place in most of the stats is near the top or in the middle. They should be quite strong in Div III and should expect to promote again quite...

    First game of the season for Botany Swarm and Dunedin Thunder resulted in a 7--2 win for the Swarm. Thunder started well, but seemed to lose a bit of energy as the game progressed. They do look...

    You are right, but I suspect that is a typo, as the original team named for Swarm did have only 3 goalies. I think one of the goalies from last year is actually playing out this year as a D. However...
