Stettler Lightning recorded one win, two losses and one tie in four games in a busy week in the Heritage Junior B. Heritage Hockey League.

The Lightning lost 5-2 in Okotoks to the undefeated Bisons on Nov. 15 to end a busy week.

Cody Smitten and Brett Mulbach scored for the Lightning.

The night before in Stettler, the Lightning shot down the High River Flyers 5-2 at Stettler Recreation Centre.

Robb David and Jordan Vincent each scored a pair for the Lightning while Mulbach added a single.

Stettler battled to a 1-1 overtime tie in Airdrie against the central division leading Thunder on Nov. 13 in the second game of a home-and-home series.

Clayton Herzog scored the lone goal for the Lightning.

Clay Spady tallied the only goal for the Lightning.

“We knew this would be the toughest weekend in our schedule,” said head coach Doug Smith.

“I thought we deserved a better fate against Airdrie at home.”

“We didn’t have much luck around the net,” said Smith.

Lightning players were pumped for the game against High River at home on Saturday.

“This is one game our guys were looking or revenge,” said Smith.

“We limited the chances they had.”

Concluding the week in Okotoks took its toll on the Lightning.

“We played well positionally but we were getting tired mentally after a busy week and we rant into penalty trouble in the third period,” said Smith.

Heading into action this week, the Lightning sit in third place in the north division with five wins, eight losses and one tie for 11 points, behind the second-place Red Deer Vipers with 20 and ahead of Rimbey Rock with eight points.

Upcoming, the Lightning visit Ponoka Stampeders on Nov.18 and Blackfalds Wranglers on Nov .24.

The next home game for the Lightning is Friday, Dec. 4 when they host Ponoka Stampeders at 7:30 p.m.
