The Clearwater Midget Rec team continued its winning ways last weekend, to the growing frustration of Merritt.

As of the previous weekend the local squad had won all of its games so far this season but two.

In its first game against Merritt at the Sportsplex on Saturday, Clearwater won 8 – 3.

“Our goaltending was a big part of it,” said coach Tim Walker. “Karter Romeo was phenomenal in net. They actually out hustled us and often beat us to the puck, but our sharpshooting goal-scorers and our goaltending put us ahead.”

Unfortunately, the game turned ugly as frustration set in for Merritt. There were a number of stick infractions by Merritt and the Clearwater players retaliated with some unfortunate cross-checks and two fights. Four players ejected from the game (two from each team).

The senior referees were called in for the game scheduled for Sunday but the power was out and the game was postponed.

 

The Merritt team is 100 per cent Midget age. Clearwater only has four players of Midget age, while the rest are Bantams.
