With the hockey season almost over, this past weekend both the rinks at the Stettler Recreation Centre were busy, hosting games.

Now in the final stage, the teams are battling out each other either to establish league supremacy or provincial prowess.

Even though many of the Stettler teams made it to the playoffs, only Stettler Bantam boys and PeeWee girls made it to the provincials.

After winning their first game 5-4, Stettler faced Kneehill Chiefs on Saturday, March 4 in a home game.

However, despite a strong team effort they went down 7-4.

On Sunday, March 5, the Bantam boys lost in the third game of the best of three series, 7-5 to Kneehill in an away game, ending their league play.

Stettler was down 2 to 0 at the end of 20 minutes with a couple of defensive mistakes in the last minute of the period.

After 40 minutes of play, the game was tied 3 to 3, leaving the third period as a winner take all match.

Stettler went down to the home team, 7 to 3 midway through the third, but in the last minute Stettler scored two goals.

“It was a matter of too little and too late which ended league play for the Bantam boys,” said Coach Duncan Babchuk. “They continue to prepare for the provincial tournament which starts on March 17 in Gibbons.”
