The tournament committee of Beaumont did a fantastic job of organizing a 24-team event the day after Boxing Day.

White Storm had a great three days. Their first game was against St. Charles out of Edmonton, the team tied the game 8-8; Lincoln Carey did a remarkable job in goal. The first star of this game was #11 Alex DeYoung.

Whites’ second game was against Sherwood Park Vipers. White defeated there opponents 10-2 with Rhett Shingoose, Issac Lee taking hat tricks and single goals by Conner Wyness, Myles Niehaus, DeYoung, and Carey. Showing her skills in goal was Rebecca Bridge. First star in that game was Rhett Shingoose and third star went to Lincoln Carey.

Storm Whites’ third game took them up against Beaumont II YY, again the team worked great together and came up with a 12-5 win with Lincoln Carey in goal and Ty Zitaruk assisting on two goals and Clode Anderson also getting an assist. Kelly Page and Ben Tschritter were true team players always being where they have to be making the passes that count. Hat tricks came from Niehaus, Lee, Shingoose and DeYoung. First star went to Niehaus and third star to Zitaruk.

The semi-final game between Sylvan Lake Spartec System and Storm White was a nail biter from the beginning

Rebecca Bridge had an awesome game in goal; unfortunately Sylvan Lake defeated the Storm by 6-5. with second star going to Rebecca Bridge

A great effort by all players of the team, not only on the ice but off the ice, they represented Stettler very well.

Novice white went back to regular season on Jan.4 with regular practices; they have another tournament in Bashaw in February before the home tournament at the end of February.
