Peewees Kyla Horsting-Minnabarriet and Allie Aie take control of the puck at centre ice during a game against Logan Lake

Peewees play to nailbiting finish

Ashcroft Peewees played Logan Lake in Ashcroft. Last hometown game is Jan. 7.

The Ashcroft Peewees faced off against Logan Lake on Dec. 17. Logan Lake scored the first goal, with Ashcroft Chief’s #18, Tyrus Peters, assisting #88 Lloyd Johnson for the first of many! Logan Lake managed to get another one, but #19 Griffin Aie answered back with an unassisted goal to end the first period in a 2-2 tie.

The excitement continued into the second period with Logan Lake scoring 3 more goals before the ice clean and our Chief’s #77 Hunter Beckett coming back at them with two unassisted goals of his own, going into the third with a 5-4 score for Logan Lake.

Fans were on edge after the ice clean with the score being 5-4 for Logan Lake, especially when Logan Lake scored within the first 18 seconds. Yet not a minute and a half later #21 Kraig Loring, assisted by #19 Griffin Aie, was able to get one for us! Our defense played hard and, although Logan Lake scored two more, our team kept digging. It paid off with #77 Hunter Beckett, assisted by #18 Tyris Peters, scoring one and #60 Tyler Antoine, assisted by #24 Hayden Aie, scoring another one to bring the score up to 8-7 for Logan Lake.

With just over five minutes left, Logan Lake scored again to gain a 2 goal advantage. Our coaches, Travis Beckett, Victor Minnabarriet, and Ed Aie, decided to pull the goalie to give us the player advantage and, boy, did that get the fans nervous! It sure worked though, with #77 Hunter Beckett scoring the final goal of the game with only 3 seconds left on the clock for an exciting finish of 9-8 for Logan Lake.

Goalie Pearce Brown was well defended by his “D-men/women” #33 Kyla Horsting-Minnabarriet, #22 Jada Raphael, #23 Kate Curran, #19 Griffin Aie, #61 Allie Aie, and #6 Colton Southwick. The offense all played so well and it is just awesome watching them all come together as a team.

They will enjoy some time off for the holidays, then they return to the rink for some practices, followed by a game on Jan. 7 at 11:30 against Merritt for their last home game. See you all there with your noise makers!
