November 2018 report

The month of November has not been too kind for the Aardvarks, who posted a 2-5-2 record over the month.

A combination of a tough schedule and the lack of proper conditioning by a few of the veteran Aardvarks during the off-season is the direct link to starting the season three games under 0.500.

Some highlights over the month include Jayde Barkman’s 81 save performance agianst the Rifles on November 13th and Donny Buchko’s four goal night against the Brewsers on November 28th. At the well-oiled age of 76, Buchko continues to rewrite the history books of the IRHL.
