He was playing with his brother Dylan Bader, 15, and their friends Owen Foos, 14; Aleah Foos, 16; and Elliott Foos, 20. More players were expected for a scrimmage.

ALBION – The deep freeze, snow and ice has been eagerly awaited by some local residents. A group of hockey players were out this evening at the ice skating rink at Albion Central School.

The rink is behind the varsity soccer field. It can be reached by following the driveway past the elementary school. The rink froze and hockey players were out today for the first time this winter at the site.

The district lights the rink in the evening and more players were expected for a scrimmage later today.
