The Lacoka Locos junior tier III team travelled to Brooks June 3 to take on the previously undefeated Drillers.

The team played a solid game on both ends of the floor despite missing six of their regular players. The Locos scored the first goal of the game just three minutes in on a nice give-and-go play to Sklyer Sargeant who got his first of two on the day.

Brooks battled back with a shorthanded marker two minutes later to even the score at one. Taylor Wass scored his first of three goals with nine minutes left before Brook ran off three in a row to lead 4-2 after the first period despite being outplayed by the visiting Lacoka team.

The Locos came out in the second period with a little more jump and ran off eight straight goals with Mack Hawthorne getting two, Tanner Green getting two and singles by Sargeant, Kyle Stegmaier, Reed St. Denis and Wass. The Drillers did manage to get one back before the end of the second but trailed 10-5 after two.

The third period was another strong period for the Locos as they traded goals with Brooks. Scoring for the Locos in the third were St. Denis, Wass and Carter Waldbauer to round the scoring in the 13-9 win. Picking up assists on the day included Hawthorne (3), Sargeant (4), St. Denis (3), Stegmaier (1), Wass (2), Waldbauer (1) and Dakota Haarstad (2). Getting the win in goal was Matt Granson.

The win evened the record for the Lacombe/Ponoka team to five wins and five losses with only four games remaining in the regular season. The next game action June 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lacombe arena.
