Faith Lutheran Plays Final Home Game
The first high school hockey team in Nevada played its final home game of the season at City National Arena on Saturday, March 16. The team finished the game with a win which was a memorable way to close out what was a historic season of firsts. “It’s been an amazing year. The entire experience filled with great memories that i’ll cherish for the rest of my life,” said forward Matthew Johnson.
“It’s something brand new. It’s grassroots,” Faith Lutheran coach Eldon “Pokey” Reddick said. “We’re the first team and actually it’s a great feeling for the community, great for the kids. With the Golden Knights on board, it was just a matter of time.”
The team is a piece of a long effort to grow the game of hockey in Las Vegas so that in the future, hockey is part of more high schools athletic departments. Growing hockey at all levels has been an important part of the Golden Knight’s focus since the teams inception.
The community tipped its cap to Faith Lutheran for being the first and is excited to see them play again next year!
