Stettler Lightning suffered another defeat in the Junior Heritage B Hockey League last week at the hands of hosts Cochrane Generals, but the Lightning head coach said his team performed well on the ice despite 8-5 score in favor of the opponent.

The Generals opened the scoring in the 12th minute of the game on Friday Nov. 7, with the Lightning responding within a minute, a pattern that continued for most part of the game until the host team established its dominance in the third period.

Clayton Herzog, Myles Rindal, and Orie Spearing scored one goal each and Jordan Vincent scored twice and provided the assist for one goal for the Lightning.

Head coach Doug Smith said he believed his team played very well.

“Every time they scored, we responded really well and really quick. But also I think we made some bad decisions as well, and they cost us a couple of goals.”

“Other than that, there was a lot of good things in that game, we were in control of the game for some time and we created some good scoring opportunities.”

Coach Smith said they would be focusing on strengthening their defensive play and a better control of the puck when it is in their side of the rink.

The Lightning now enter into an intense period of the season with four games in one week as they host Airdrie Tuesday night, Nov. 10 and then travel to Airdrie on Nov. 13, play High River at home the next day and then travel to Okotoks on Nov. 15.

Despite the busy schedule, coach Smith expressed confidence that they would be up to the task.

“For the first time for more than a month, all our players will be available to play” Smith said referring to the wave of flu that affected his players.

“That will be nice.”
