More Ponoka Minor Hockey teams drop the puck on the pre-season

All of the teams in the Northern Alberta Interlock finally off and running in game action

The last of Ponoka’s minor hockey clubs got out of the gate over the weekend on tiering games in Northern Alberta Interlock pre-season action.

The Stampeders second atom squad along with the bantam club were last teams to step on the ice, while the rest of the clubs were back for their second weekend of play.

The bantam squad saw Kael Street score twice along with Ethan Little at home Oct. 12 in a 5-3 loss to Calmar, followed the next day with a 5-5 draw in Camrose with Luke Simanton netting a hat trick and a pair from Wyatt Avery. Meanwhile, the atoms were at home Oct. 13 and jumped all over Warburg by a count of 9-1 on two goals each from Reid Klimec, Chase Alitzer, Brock Corbett-Warren, Casyn Huseby and one by Reid Nickerson.

The rest of the action saw the other atom club fall 13-2 to New Sarepta Oct. 12 then 11-2 to Thorsby Oct. 14, with the peewee squad scoring five straight times by five different players — Matias Czapp, Berkley Williams, Thomas McLaughlin, Lennon Buffalo and Carsen Richter — in dumping Camrose Oct. 14.

Meanwhile, the midget team concluded its tiering schedule by getting edged out 5-4 Oct. 13 in Vegreville followed the next day by a 7-4 defeat at the hands of New Sarepta.

Tiering will conclude for a few teams this weekend with the bantams hosting New Sarepta Oct. 19 (8:45 p.m.) then in Warburg the next day, the peewees on the road in Drayton Valley Oct. 20 and Daysland Oct. 21 and the atom 1 squad home to Devon Oct. 20 (11:15 a.m.). The atom 2 club are home to New Sarepta Oct. 20 (1:15 p.m.) then in Maskwacis Oct. 21 and will end the pre-season Oct. 28 in Devon.
