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.

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