Minor Hockey Minute

Recap of games from January 12th-14th for Windermere Valley Minor Hockey teams

Submitted by Windermere Minor Hockey Society

The Bantam Hockey team played in an International tournament in Creston last weekend. They beat Missoula and Taber, tied Coeur D’Alene, and lost to Spokane. The team ended up 3rd in a tournament of 7 teams. All players played some of their best hockey of the year, but special mention goes to Tristen Macintosh, Sonny Langton, Brydon Fleming and goalie, Ty Frocklage. They are off to Olds, Alberta next weekend.

The Senior Girls played an inter-squad game to welcome back their goalie, who has been injured.

The Peewees were basically at home all weekend. They played a game against Kimberley at the Canal Flats arena on Thursday, January 11th. They lost the game 6-2, but considering it was 4-0 after the first 5 minutes, they played their best hockey of the year the rest of the game. The goals were scored by Payton Kruger and Carson Jefferson. On Friday, January 12th, the Peewees played Fernie, winning 4-3. They played again on Saturday against Fernie, winning 6-5. Goals against Fernie were scored by Connor Brooks, Lief Dubrueil, Carson Jefferson, Paddy Donahue, Payton Kruger, Ayden Taylor, Carter Digney, Lucien Kinsey, and Baylan Douglas (2): it was a real team effort.

The Midgets played two games against Whitefish on the weekend. They lost both games, but Spencer Dubois and William Clark scored their second goals of the year, both on a streak.

The Atom B team played in a tournament in Kimberley where they won their first game against Kimberley and Cohen Lawrick had a shutout. Against Airdrie, they again won by a score of 7-0, with hat tricks by Everett Freisen and Cameron Jacobson. The third game was an exciting one against Lethbridge, with the team losing 3-2, and with Cohen Lawrick as the

Hustler of the game. They lost their fourth game on Sunday morning against Cremona 5-0, ending the tournament 2-2.

The Novice teams played in an Elkford tournament where they played teams from Elkford, Sparwood, Crowsnest Pass, Fernie and Whitefish. Although scores were not kept, the local teams dominated most of their games with Tobin Donahue, scoring 9 goals and 9 assists throughout the tournament. Myan Twogood and Burton Nyuli were both excellent in goal.
