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.

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

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.

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.
