The weekend of Oct. 26 and 27 brought mixed results for Ponoka’s minor hockey teams with the downside being the losses slightly surpassing the wins.

Saturday, Oct. 26 was the day of losses, and heavy ones at that, with both Atom teams of Ponoka suffering defeats at the hand of their rivals. On home ice, Ponoka Atom B was overpowered by Maskwacis Atom with a score of 18-1.

Visiting Sundre, Ponoka Atom A lost 7-2 with the only goals for the local boys coming from Kael Street on an assist from Colter Breese, and from Gavin Allen-Prefontaine with the assist by Zachary Rausch.

Again on Saturday, the Ponoka Bantam team lost to Camrose 4-2 with both goals for the local boys coming from Lewis McDowell.

In Sunday’s games, Ponoka’s Peewee A team dealt a heavy blow to home side Bulldogs in Blackfalds: 12-3. Noah Hacket scored six goals, with Emett Norn and Aidan Gratton adding two each.

Jake Simanton scored one and Rylan Lefevbre completed the tally in addition to his two assists.

Ponoka’s Peewee B team visited Eckville and lost a hard fought battle 6-5 with Cyle Laing (2), Connor Macleod, Zachary Little and Travis Hyink putting the numbers on the scoreboard.

In the Midget category there were two wins, one at home, one on the road.

Ponoka Midget A Wolves won a very rough game 3-2 against Red Deer Kings with Tyson Bore, Dustin Bell and Riley Workman scoring on home ice. The away win was much sweeter: Ponoka Midget B beat the hosts Stettler 7-0 with Jarret Henderson, Pierre Clemmer (2), Shane Epp (2), James Lea and Ethan Deuck making up the list of scorers. Clemmer also contributed with two assists.
