The girls’ Bantam and Midget hockey teams hosted their annual hockey tournament here in Stettler this past weekend, with one team nabbing the B finals win and the other just missing the finals.

The Midget team first played against Camrose, tying in a hard-fought game 4-4.

The second game against Lloydminster was going in Stettler’s favour until one of their own was taken out with an injury. The concussion did more than rattle the injured player, as it shook the whole team and their game plan suffered.

Though they had been leading 4-1, they eventually lost to Lloydminster 5-4.

A final match against Okotoks saw the girls try to make up for the loss of concentration in the last game, but fall short. The loss to Okotoks eliminated the Midget team from the playoffs.

The Midget tournament was eventually won by Edmonton, who took out Lloydminster for the win.

In Bantam play, the girls made it all the way to the B finals, where they won handily over Lloydminster with a score of 5-1.

The girls first played against Okotoks, losing in a nail-biting close 4-3 match.

The girls rebounded from the loss in their play against Airdrie, sending the team back to the change room without a single goal in the 5-0 win.

The last game of round-robin play, against Sprucegrove, saw the girls continue their winning streak, winning 8-0.

The A final in the Bantam tournament was won by Calgary.
