Not much known about Newfoundland squad, and coach likes it

GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, N.L. Refuse to lose.

Its a motto that has served the Central Junior Cataracts well as they rolled to a Central West Junior Hockey League championship with a six-game victory over Triton. Its something the club hopes to carry with them to Springhill and the Don Johnson Cup.

We have the benefit that the other teams dont know much about us and were going to use that to our advantage, coach Randy Larcombe said. I kind of like that.

While his club, that includes former Blue Peter Walsh, may not be the offensive powerhouse that East Hants is, Larcombe said its a team with a lot of grit, heart and desire that simply refuses to lose.

We play a style of game in which every player on this bench gives 100 per cent every time they step on the ice. They play with a lot of heart and desire. They dont know how to quit, Larcombe said.

Not wanting to tip his hand too much, Larcombe said he has done his homework on the tournaments other teams and is confident of his clubs chances.

Weve done our homework and we are not going there with low expectations, he said. We expect to be playing for the championship.

Larcombe said the tournament should provide a great opportunity for players looking to move on to higher levels such as the Maritime Junior Hockey League, major junior and college.
