The Pee Wee A’s dominated the Camrose Drillers in Game 2 of provincial play-downs on Tuesday, Feb. 27 in Stettler. The Stettler Storm travelled to Camrose the weekend before and lost 5-2, which meant that a four goal win was needed to advance to provincials.
The game started with a goal from Carter Klapak 6 minutes into the game. Assisted by Carter Kranzler and Cash Buchwitz. Stettler’s second goal was at the 10 minute mark of the first scored by Carter Zuk.
The second period saw a lot of play in the defensive end, but Stettler’s defence partners were rock solid. With 50 seconds left in the period, Carter Kranzler made a beauty pass out front to Cash Buchwitz who potted it to make the score 3-0!
Halfway through the third period, Van Ringen lets one rip and scores! Assisted by Carter Zuk and Cade Wilkie. But the Camrose Drillers wouldn’t roll over too easily, scoring with 5:48 minutes left in the game.
10 minutes of overtime was then put up on the clock. Two minutes into overtime and Carter Zuk gets the puck in Stettler’s end. He dangled it end to end and put it past the goalie to win the game 5-1!
The four goal win over the Camrose Drillers helped seal a spot in the upcoming tournament. Provincials will take place the weekend of March 22-25 in Edmonton, AB.
