Chiefs tie game against 100 Mile House

Midget hockey is back in Ashcroft and last weekend the Chiefs hosted 100 Mile House.

The Ashcroft Chiefs played to a 3-3 tie with the Milers from 100 Mile House on Nov. 22 in Ashcroft.

The midget teams played a fast and furious game on the weekend, with goals scored by Jared Ehler, Griffin Aie and Dorian Billy.

The weekend before we had played in 100 Mile House in their own arena. The drive was awful but the game was exciting as they almost tied, but the game ended as 100 Mile House literally scored a goal at the 0.00 time mark in the 3rd period to assure their win.

We have been getting larger crowds during games which is great! We love to see families there to cheer on the local team.

It has been years since Ashcroft has had a Midget team and they are doing extremely well … the kids get along great as do the parents.
