LANTZ: It was an exciting night of hockey on home ice for two East Hants Penguins clubs on Thursday night.

The East Hants White Penguins and East Hants Black Penguins faced off against one another in U15C hockey action.

The game took place on the big ice surface known as the Keith Miller Arena in the East Hants Sportsplex in Lantz.

Players on either side had lots of support in the stands as many proud parents and family friends cheered on their favourite player (or players).


The Laker News stopped in to catch some of the game in a fan role, not so much in a reporter role. But we still had to snap a few photos on our iPhone.
