Midget A Strad Storm had a successful weekend playing against the top three teams in their division beating Ponoka 5-4 on Friday, but losing to 5-3 Rimbey the next day due to flu and injuries significantly cutting into the roster. The fewer number of players that dressed was again a factor on Sunday against Red Deer, when the local boys managed to pull through a tie in their third game in as many days.

Brandon Sharpe and Nick Yaschuk were the stars of the game against Ponoka, according to coach Kevin Turner.

Midget A Strad Storm are now tied for the third place in their Tier 2 division.

“We are very strong defensively allowing only one goal in each game on the weekend,” said coach Steven Leacock.

“Goal-tending has been very good all year with both goalies being in the top three of the division”. CSI Midget Storm play agaisnt Hobbema at home on Friday, Dec. 17.

The Bantam A Storm had two games last weekend. On Saturday, they rallied from a 3-0 deficit to tie with Clive. Goal scorers were Cody Ball, Chase Mcgonigal and Braden Reynolds. Dylan Humbke made the saves when called upon. Sunday’s game against Sylvan Lake had a better outcome. The final score was 4-2 for the local boys with scorers Jordan Fisher, Cody Ball, Tanner Steinwand and Landon Barnes making up the tally. Ben Nichols made 26 saves for the win.

Stettler Bantam A girls faced the Delburne Outlaws and defeated their opponent 5-4 in a tight game. Scoring for the girls were Dakota Schwarzenberger, Ronnie Burrows, Jayden Hogg, Autumn Woelk and Morgan VanDusen.

Stettler Elks Atom AA remain undefeated in the regular season after their two home games last weekend. With six wins and two ties, Elks Atom AA Stettler leads Olds Atom A by one point.

In the first game against Red Deer Phone Experts on Saturday, Dec. 11, the local boys tied the game 5-5 at the end of three periods with goals coming from Alex De Young, Brady Turner, Kameron Bainbridge, Erik Rost and Carter Van Esch in a great team effort.
