Stettler’s atom teams battle it out in a weekend duel of scoring

Difficult task - Stettler’s midget Storm A struggled in finding opportunities to score in the face of well-coordinated Thunderstorm defense on Saturday

A major battle between Stettler’s two atom teams ended in a 6-5 victory for Stettler C Storm over Stettler atom C Elks on Sunday, Dec. 19.

The tight game which continued with tit-for-tat scoring for the first two periods ended with the domination of the third period by the C Storm as they scored three goals but accepted none.

Reese Smith scored three times for the Storm with Ethan Tomkow, Harmen Coenen and Chelsey DeVloo adding one each to the scorecard. On the Elks side, Beau Cooper tallied three goals while Madison Kuefler added two.

In another atom game on Sunday, atom B Storm lost to 8-5 to visiting Bentley Canucks with Garrett Hogg scoring three times and Gracie Morbeck and Riley Cornelssen one each.

Stettler Elks AA atom team remains undefeated after last weekend’s two consecutive games.

In their road game last Saturday in Rocky Mountain House, the Elks overpowered hosts Rocky Warriors 4-3 in a tight game. Scoring were Erik Rost, Daylan Kuefler, James Switenky and Samuel Hamelin.

The following day they delivered a handsome 14- 9 defeat to Hobbema at home with Sam Hamelin and Adam Shirley scoring four each, Rhett Shingoose three, Daylan Kuefler two and Carter Van Esch one.

Things were not so bright for the midget Strad A Storm over the weekend, when they lost both of their games.

“We had a disappointing weekend with a good old-fashioned butt-kicking handed to us by the Thunderstars on Saturday when they came and took two points from us beating us 9 – 3,” said head coach Kevin Turner.

“Without a few players to help with some of our offence the game was very sloppy to say the least, but in the same token it does make a better team when you lose a few games like this because it brings the best out in the players in games to come.”

The next day, with still a short roster, the midgets traveled to Kneehill.

“Each and every one of the eight skaters that traveled gave it what they could,” said Turner of their 7-3 loss on the road.

“In the two games our goaltenders have seen around 120 shots on net, it shows that we have the best goaltending in the entire league,” he added.
