16 Feb 2020. On a bright but windy February day, a large crowd of tíc members met to watch the three-time Oberlina Champion ice hockey team potentially make their way to the play-offs again this year. The DESTIL Trappers, coached by Bo Subr, swept the ice with Krefelder EV ’81 in their home game Sunday afternoon with a final score of 9 – 0, their 5th shut out of the season.

24 Feb 2019. by Mala Raman. On a slightly chilly February day, a large crowd of tíc members met to watch the local hockey team potentially make their way to the play-offs. The DESTIL Trappers, coached by Bo Subr, swept the ice with Hanover Indians in their home game Sunday afternoon with a final score of 6 – 1.
This match was an action-packed game where the team ran circles around their opponent. In the midst of all the trash talking between the two teams and a helpful trip by an Indian team member to the penalty box, the score continued to increase in favor of the Trappers.
Unlike the many national hockey leagues, there really is almost no fighting during the games making it appropriate for people of all ages to attend a game. However, it wouldn’t be a hockey game unless there was a little bit of blood and gore.
Thanks to this big win, the Trappers are all set for getting into the playoffs.

As many people do not know, Tilburg has the best club ice-hockey team in the Netherlands, the DESTIL Trappers (Pedals). So, in the sprit of getting to know our city and club, we arranged a trip to see one of the games, Trappers vs MEC Halle 04 Saale Bulls, the Bulls being a team from Germany as the Trappers are at a too high level to play in the Dutch league.
We started the day by finding our seats in the victors sections which due to distance was very empty. Anne was very good to print out the rules of Ice hockey, as for many of us this was our first game.
Then with a bang, the games started with a light show and the fans singing Trappers songs. Anyone that has ever attend a William II game would know all the songs.
The game was fast and full of action with no team having a clear advantage in the first half until, of course, the away team scored just before the end of the half. During the break I did enjoy some of the fatty foods that are on offer during sporting events.
In the second half, Tilburg had something to prove. They came out fighting and managed to even the score, but in Sport, that is never enough. So, the Trappers do what they do best and put a puck in the net to end the game 2:1 . A great result and a great game. If you get the chance, please check them out.
