Boy and girl Midget teams victorious over busy hockey weekend

The Stettler Legion Midget team dealt a painful loss to the visiting Ponoka Wolves.

The Stettler Legion Midget team dealt a painful loss to the visiting Ponoka Wolves when they were in town this past Sunday, Jan. 25, with the final score being 10-2.

The first period belonged solely to the Stettler team, with two goals from Zack Webowesky, and a goal each from Euan Hanton, Cody Ball, Tanner Steinwand and Matt Sylvester.

Going into the second with a 6-0 lead, the home team added a seventh goal from Mark Bengert before Ponoka got on the board with their first goal.

Stettler answered that with one of their own, off the stick of Andrew Bauman. Ponoka scored its second, and last, goal with a minute left to go in the period, bringing the score to 8-2.

Though facing a painful deficit, the Wolves never gave up, playing hard and making several shots on Stettler goalie Benjamin Bauman, but for the most part Stettler kept the action in Ponoka’s half of the rink. Quade Cassidy scored with about six minutes left in the third, and Werboweski scored his third goal of the game, bringing the curtain down on the 10-2 victory.
