Clearwater Atom Jackson Graffunder (#5) takes the puck up the ice during one of two games against Logan Lake at the Sportsplex last weekend.

The local squad lost both games (9-0, 8-1) but achieved the goals of better positioning, and not getting confused when the teams switch ends, said coach Barb Coates. “The kids are improving,” she reported.
