SUBMITTED

Stettler U-18 boys beat Rocky Mountain House 5-1 in their first game of the tournament.

Rocky scored in the first minute of the game and controlled the play for the first ten minutes. The boys came around and started to take over the game.

In the second game Stettler tied the eventual gold medallist Hinton team 1-1. Hinton scored in the first half with Frank van Ommeren tying the game on a penalty with ten minutes to play.

The third game saw Stettler play winless Edson. Edson played a strong defensive game, using the smaller field to congest the play and frustrate the Stettler attack. The game ended in a 1-0 loss for Stettler boys.

Stettler played the bronze medal game controlling much of the play but unable to get the go ahead goal. Braden Deagle got the lone goal in the 1-1 tie. St. Paul won the game 3-2 on penalty kicks.

The team plays in provincial qualifiers in Lacombe this weekend and is seeded top of the league.
