Blues take both ends of road swing

Stettler posts wins at Red Deer, Vegreville to push record to 4-1 in midget A league

The Stettler Legion Blues were road warriors on the weekend, winning two midget A hockey games in as many days.

Stephan du Toit scored both Stettler goals Sunday as the Blues edged host Vegreville 2-1.

He tied the score in the second period and converted a slick pass from defenceman Riley Anderson in the third to give Stettler another victory.

“Devon Woelk was strong in net and we played well defensively,” said Blues assistant coach Neil McCallum.

Stettler outshot the home team 43-27 and the lone Vegreville goal was on “a bit of a disputed play,” he said.

At the Collicutt Centre on Saturday night in Red Deer, the Blues beat the King’s Energy Midgets 5-2 in an entertaining game.

Stettler trailed 1-0 after the first period, but got going offensively in the second on back-to-back goals from Micah Croker — on a breakaway — and David Hanton, who tipped an Anderson point shot.

“Red Deer tied it before the second was over, with a nice shot through a screen,” McCallum said.

The third period was all-Stettler as du Toit tallied twice and Logan Davidson added an empty-netter.

“Red Deer had some great chances to score, but Jordan McCallum came up big, stopping a penalty shot and a breakaway,” said coach McCallum.

“Stettler scored late in the third — shorthanded by Stephan du Toit — after a great rush from Tyler Stewart.”

The Blues had a 38-23 advantage in shots. They fired 81 shots in the pair of weekend wins and improved their North Central Minor Hockey Association record to 4-1.

Stettler captain Parker Cassidy picked up a couple of assists in Saturday’s win.

Stettler’s next scheduled action is a Nov. 30 home game against the Rimbey Midget Renegades, who beat the Blues 7-5 two weeks ago at Rimbey. In its home-opener late last month, Stettler defeated Rimbey 10-5.

Early this month, the Blues beat the Innisfail Flyers 10-5.

Meanwhile, the Stettler midget B team tied the visiting Rocky Renegades 5-5 last Friday at the Stettler Recreation Centre. Rocky’s Hylan Abraham scored the lone third-period goal with 10 minutes remaining.

Jarrett Hampton made 35 saves for Stettler, which got goals from Scott Woods, Kyle Froese, Brycen Bainbridge, Braydon Whiteford and Levi Fisher.

Stettler fired 50 shots at Tim Bosteyn as the teams combined for 90 shots.
