Peewees put the brakes on Merritt

Next home game for Ashcroft Peewees is Dec. 17 at Drylands Arena

Ashcroft goalie Pearce Brown defends his net

The Ashcroft Peewee team faced off against Merritt on Dec. 3 in the Drylands Arena. Merritt managed to score within the first 30 seconds but Ashcroft did a great job in holding them off for most of the rest of the first period.  Merritt was able to get three more goals, with Ashcroft’s Kraig Loring scoring one in return, assisted by Hunter Beckett.

Ashcroft came out strong in the second period, seeing Hayden Aie assisting Hunter Beckett for one goal, and Hunter scoring another one unassisted. The defense held Merritt off except for two quick goals to make the score 6-3 going into the third.

Pearce Brown’s goal tending was great and Merritt was only able to get three more goals. Ashcroft answered back with two more of their own, Kraig Loring assisting Hunter Beckett and another unassisted goal by Hunter. The defense played so well, helping Pearce keep the puck out of the net, with our offense driving the puck to the other end every chance they had. The final score was 9-5 for Merritt.

The players on our Peewee team have so much heart it is a pleasure watching them develop their skills and really come together as a team. The next home game is Dec. 17 at 11:30. We will see everyone there!
