Minor hockey minute

Recap of last week’s minor hockey matchups

Submitted by Windermere Minor Hockey Society

The Midgets travelled to Pincher Creek for a tournament last weekend. In the first game, Jared Oaks opened the scoring early in the 1st with an assist from Morgan Clarke, but Vulcan scored to tie. Nick Irons managed to find the back of the net less than a minute into the 2nd with assists from Jared Oaks and Carter Purdy, and at the end of the second Vulcan tied it again. Jared Oaks scored again halfway through the 3rd, assist to Davis Tenta, to take the lead one more time, but unfortunately Vulcan managed two goals minutes later to take the win 4-3. MVP award went to Nick Irons.

Game 2 was Saturday morning against Pincher Creek. Brandon Magnusson in net was peppered with an unceremoniously high number of shots, and he did everything he could to try and keep them in the game, making some ridiculously incredible saves, but Pincher outplayed the boys and took the win 11-0. Brandon was the MVP that game for his immense hard work.

Game 3 was Saturday evening and the boys were itching to redeem their loss and came out of the gate ready to win. Andrue Durant scored a mere 19 seconds into the game, with assists from Nick Irons and Jagar Jefferson. Just minutes later Davis

Tenta assisted on Jared Oaks’ goal to bring us up to a 2 goal lead for the first time all tournament. Only 21 seconds into the 2nd Jared Oaks scored again, with assists from Davis Tenta and Andrue Durant, score 3-0. Okotoks scored and then Jared received a pass from Carter Purdy and Jared had his first hat trick to take us back up 4-1. The 3rd was fairly uneventful with the only goal going to Davis Tenta, assisted by Jared Oaks and Carter Purdy. Final score 5-1. MVP was Jagar Jefferson. Our final game was Sunday morning against Vulcan again, a second chance to try and beat them. Nicholas Irons, assisted by Spencer Dubois and Jagar Jefferson opened the scoring in the game, less than 2 minutes in. However Vulcan scored 2 goals within 26 seconds of each other and took the lead 2-1. Davis Tenta capitalizing on a power play (assists from Andure Durant and Spencer Dubois) and Jared Oaks (assist from Andrue Durant) scored 2 quick goals in the 2nd putting us in the lead 3-2. Unfortunately Vulcan tied the game 3-3 halfway through the 2nd, and scored a 4th goal. Vulcan took advantage of another power play less than a minute into the 3rd taking a 2 goal lead 5-3. With 15 minutes left Davis Tenta brought us within 1 goal scoring with assists from Andrue Durant and Spencer Dubois. Unfortunately, Vulcan won 5-4. The boys all played hard, never gave up and should be proud of the hard work they put in all weekend.

The Atoms travelled to Sparwood where they lost to Sparwood. The Senior Girls played a fun game against the Kimberley Bantam boys on Saturday, and then went to the Kootenay Ice Game. Other teams had the week-end off.

The Bantam team hosted a home tournament this past week-end with teams from 100 Mile House, Creston, Canmore, Simons Valley, and Indus in attendance. The local team beat Indus and lost to Canmore and Simons Valley and finished fourth in the tournament. No information on scores or scorers. They will be having a bake sale at the Rockies’ game on Saturday to raise money for their trip to Provincials in Kitimat.
