Ponoka’s Fountain Tire Midget A team will play a mixed RCMP team as a fundraiser on Wednesday, Nov. 5 in order to support KidSport in a repeat of last year’s game, which contributed some $600 to efforts to enable more kids to join teams sports.

Jordan Wombold and Jarret Henderson of the Midget A team said they would have fun while also raising money for a good cause.

The RCMP mixed team will include the Midget A team’s head coach Ryan Koehli alongside officers from Maskwacis, Sylvan Lake, Wetaskiwin and Stettler detachments.

Wombold said of the game with a wide grin: “It is good to have fun, but it always helps when you beat your coach.”

In last year’s game, the Midget A team overpowered the RCMP team and Henderson said they had a more than 80 per cent chance of repeating their last year’s feat.

There will be live music and a puck toss during the intermissions.

Midgets hope to be able to raise exceed the funds they raised last year.
