The Stettler Storm midget girls travelled to Olds on the weekend and won the C final in the Grizzlys hockey tournament.

Stettler beat Onoway 3-1 to finish with a 2-2 record.

The Storm went into the weekend shorthanded, with some girls missing because of injuries, and work and family commitments.

They opened the tourney Friday night with a 5-2 loss to Olds.

Stettler rebounded Saturday morning and edged Onoway 2-1.

On Saturday evening, the Storm were tied 2-2 with Spruce Grove going into the third period, but they ran out of steam in the last 10 minutes and lost 4-2.

This weekend, Stettler plays its final two regular-season games — Saturday at home to Sylvan Lake and at Ponoka on Sunday against Lacoka.

The Storm are still looking for votes in the Stagg Chili Saves for Success contest. They began this week in sixth place and they’re shooting for a top-five finish to win a prize. Go to www.staggchili.ca/vote  to register a vote.
