Lightning pull out home-ice victory

Steve Blacklock scored the winning goal midway through the third period as the Stettler Lightning edged the Mountainview Colts 3-2

Steve Blacklock scored the winning goal midway through the third period as the Stettler Lightning edged the Mountainview Colts 3-2 in Heritage Junior Hockey League action last Friday night at the Stettler Recreation Centre.

Kyler O’Connor netted a pair of goals for Stettler and Landon Potter assisted on all three Lightning goals.

Simon Thieleman returned to Stettler’s lineup in style, with a 45-save performance that included 20 stops in the third period.

Cole Sutherland and Colton Anderson scored for Mountainview, and Mike Byer blocked 31 Stettler shots.

The Lightning took a 4-13-0-1 record into Tuesday night’s late game at home against the Red Deer Vipers.

Stettler remains home for a pair of games this weekend — Friday against the Three Hills Thrashers and Saturday versus the Coaldale Copperheads.

The Three Hills lineup includes Stettler products Dylan Houston and Jacob Hamel, and the Neumeier brothers — Aaron and Michael — of Castor.

Houston, a rookie forward, was called up to the junior A Canmore Eagles just last week.

Stettler ends its five-game home-stand Saturday.
