Stettler minor hockey teams started their round-robin games over the weekend with both coaches and players trying to discover their strong and weak points before the regular league games get under way.
Two local teams lost to their opponents and the third won in their openers on home ice on Sunday, Sept. 27.
Peewee AA Storm played against Lacombe, and despite a strong effort, could score only one goal throughout the game against the 10 sent to their net.
In the second minor hockey game of the afternoon, bantam AA team the Chill faced Kneehill and had to head home without any goals while the visiting team scored nine goals.
The Chill took six shots at the opponents’ goal against the 43 taken by Kneehill players.
The only victory came in the last game of the day when the midget AA team beat Daysland by a score of 10 – 2.
As The Independent went to press, there was no schedule available for the minor hockey games for the weekend.
