The U11 Magrath Chiefs had two games on their schedule this last weekend where they were able to pick up a win and a loss against some stiff competition.
They welcomed Taber to the Magrath Arena for their first game on Nov. 26. In the first period the chiefs were unable to make any goals, but come the second Owen Stanford scored a quick goal to put them on the board.
The third period saw a ton of scoring from both sides, with Jase Hansen, Riggs Hudson and Rogen Provost all finding the back of the net once while Stanford found it two more times. Unfortunately they weren’t able to pull it back into their favour, and they lost 10-6.
Their next game on Nov. 27 where they travelled to Brooks was much more in their favour.
In the first period, both Stanford and Gibson Bates chalked up a point on the board, giving them the lead while shutting down Brooks. The second period was much of the same, Hansen, Stanford and Payke Bates all scoring one-a-piece once more while shutting out Brooks to zero points again. The third saw small signs of life from Brooks, but Hansen and Stanford were able to score one-a-piece again and the Chiefs clocked in a 7-2 win.
Only one game was scheduled for the U13 Magrath Chiefs where they travelled out to Medicine Hat to fight them on their home turf.
Unfortunately, the Chiefs weren’t able to find the back of the net in the first period, and The Hat took an early lead with one goal. In the second Carter Harris chalked up a goal to put them on the board, but no more scoring took place on the side of Magrath and they lost 1-7.
Two games were up for the U15 Chiefs, and in their first they welcomed Taber to the Magrath Arena on Nov. 25.
Magrath and Taber traded goals in the first period, with Riley Schneyder making the first goal of the game for the Chiefs. The second period was all Magrath, seeing Ty Godlonton and Clayton Michel both chalking up a goal each, giving Magrath the lead. The third was much the same, but Taber fought back with a goal. Mason Mehew and Cody Harris threw up singles themselves for the Chiefs to win 2-5.
In their second game they travelled to Lethbridge on Nov. 26.
Scoring for the Chiefs opened up early, with Joseph Wilde scoring the first goal of the game while Lethbridge was unable to find any in the first period. The second period saw both teams trade equally, Schneyder and Wilde potting singles to keep the game in the Chiefs favour. Unfortunately in the third period, Lethbridge opened up their scoring and the Chiefs skated away with a 3-6 loss.
