Lacoka female midget Warriors ‘dominate’ Maskwacis Hawks 11-1

A home game between two local teams at the Ponoka Culture and Recreation Complex on Jan. 5 was a “friendly competition” between players who are friends and even a few who are related.

That, according to Lacoka female midget Warriors head coach Curtis Huchkowski.

The Warriors, who usually struggle a bit more against the Maskwacis Hawks, out-skated the other team to a decisive 11-1 victory.

“We kind of dominated them a little bit,” said Huchkowski.

The Hawks had their single goal in the first period, after the Warriors were already up four or five goals.

“We took a good lead and we controlled it pretty good.”

Huchkowski says Lacoka’s games with Maskwacis are usually closer, and it depends on how they play, but they skated and passed well on Saturday, keeping mistakes to a minimum.

“It showed in the final score.”

The two teams will have a rematch, playing in Ponoka on Friday, Jan. 10, starting at 8:45 p.m.

After that, the team has a string of road games, hitting Okotoks and then Brooks.

Being in the Rocky Mountain Female Hockey League (RMFHL), Lacoka plays a lot of games in southern Alberta.

“We put the miles on pretty good.”
