Well organized bantam tournament ends with local success

A missed shot – Taylor Chase’s short range shot is blocked by the Westwoods Warriors’ goalie in the bantam AA hockey tournament final on Sunday afternoon as the Stettler Storm won the game 4-1.

Stettler hosted a well-organized minor hockey tournament over the weekend with three local bantam teams competing with teams coming from as far away as Calgary.

Bantam AA Storm finished their games as the winning team of their division after overpowering Westwoods Warriors of Calgary 4-1 despite having lost to them 8-5 in their opening game earlier. They also beat Edmonton 5-3.

The Stettler Bantam A Storm finished the tournament with a three-win and one- loss record.

In the first game, Stettler won by a score of 3 -2, with Jordan Fisher scoring the game winning goal against St. Albert. Tanner Steinwand received the game star. The second game was won by a score of 4 -3 versus the Westlock Warriors. The game winning goal was scored by Landon Barnes, with the game star going to Chase Mcgonical.

The only loss came in the final game against the St. Albert Flyers. The final score was 5 to 1, with Chase Mcgonical scoring the lone Stettler goal Goaltender Ben Nichols received the game star.

The Bantam B Storm lost 7-0 to Lethbridge Warriors Saturday morning and lost with the same score to Lethbridge Renegades in the afternoon. Riley Coppock was an outstanding goalie in these matches against two very strong teams. They played in the in the B Division finals against Olds Ice Warriors on Sunday. The game remained tied 2-2 at the end of regulation and the balance remained at the end of the overtime. Olds won the shoot-out.

Outside the tournament, the midget B Storm had a strong game both defensively and offensively allowing only one goal and 22 shots against Hobbema with 13 goals for on 55 shots, in a very disciplined game.
