Hard work on the ice keeps Ashcroft PeeWees going

Next home game on Dec. 3 at Drylands Arena in Ashcroft, 11:30 am.

Ashcroft’s Peewee team saw some more action on Nov. 12 with a double-header against Lillooet. Lillooet came out strong, scoring four goals in the first, six in the second and three more in the third period, but our team never gives up. Hunter Beckett #77 scored unassisted twice in the third period to end up with a final score of 13-2 for Lillooet.

After an hour and a half break, the players were back on the ice for another test of their will! The final in the second game was 13-0 for Lillooet but Ashcroft played well and kept the game clean by staying out of the penalty box for both games. Goalie Pearce Brown’s second year of hockey is proving to be challenging but he is never one to throw in the towel and always keeps on trying.

On Sunday we were off to Merritt to play another game. The game was delayed a bit due to some lighting issues, they all went out! But the players were ready once the game started. Merritt scored four goals in the first, with Ashcroft player Hunter Beckett, assisted by Tyler Antoine, answering back with one. In the second period both teams were able to get one goal each, Kraig Loring and Hunter Beckett assisting Griffin Aie for ours. In the third, Merritt managed to score two more, so with minutes left Ashcroft pulled the goalie, giving them a one player advantage and that is all they needed to score two more goals. Tyler Antoine assisted Hunter Beckett with 40 seconds left, and then Jarren Morgan scored the last goal with .2 of a second on the board, for a very exciting finish! The final scored was 7-4 for Merritt.

Our next home game is coming up on Dec. 3 at 11:30. Hope to see, and hear, everyone there to cheer on our team!
