Generals crunch lowly Lightning

JUNIOR B HOCKEY - The Stettler Lightning failed to make up any ground on the ice last weekend, losing 10-5 to the Cochrane Generals

JUNIOR B HOCKEY – The Stettler Lightning failed to make up any ground on the ice last weekend, losing 10-5 to the Cochrane Generals at home Friday night at the Stettler Recreation Centre.

The Lightning’s record in the Heritage Junior Hockey League fell to 3-13-1, while the Generals improved to 5-9-2.

Kyler O’Connor scored two goals for Stettler and singles went to D.J. Kistner, Steven Fletcher and Cam Wright. Kistner and Fletcher each recorded their first goal of the junior B season, while Gavin Brandl added a couple of assists.

Lightning goaltender Coleman Waddell gave up three goals on eight shots before being replaced by rookie Mack Schell at 6:42 of the first period. Schell made 16 saves on 23 shots.

Taylor House and Alex Colborne each netted hat tricks for Cochrane. Bruce Corrigal blocked 30 shots.

Stettler continues a five-game home-stand with a pair of games in the next week — Friday against the Mountainview Colts and Tuesday versus the Red Deer Vipers.

Stettler product Dylan Houston figured in both Three Hills goals — and scored in overtime — as the Thrashers edged the Medicine Hat Cubs 2-1 on Saturday night in Three Hills.

The Thrashers visit Stettler on Dec. 7.
