Midget A build confidence before season

Midget A Wolves defeat the Lacombe Rockets in a preseason game.

Ponoka’s Fountain Tire Midget A Wolves had a spectacular pre-season game on Sunday, Sept. 27 at the Ponoka Culture andRecreation Centre winning a convincing 7-1 victory over visiting Lacombe Rockets, building lots of confidence for the regular season.

The Wolves started rather slow in the first quarter testing the opponents’ defences and keeping their defence intact not to concede any score before they put numbers on the board. It was Justin Hall who struck first in the 6th minute of the first period, taking the lead for the hosts.

The first period ended with that score and in the second Wolves slowly started to intensify their attacks while increasing their dominance of the rink, outskating their opponents on both ends of the ice. In the process, Lewis McDowell scored in powerplay and Quinton Adam while shorthanded, taking the hosts to the third period with a three point-cushion.

In the last period, the scores continued to rain on the Rockets’ net with Josh Vold, Rian Van der Westhuizen, Pierce Clemmerand Sean Rowland all adding to the tally with their goals. Rockets scored their only point in the third, five minutes from the end of regulation.
