Icehawks face challenging season

Clearwater Midgets might have won a tournament in Vanderhoof but that doesn't mean they're not finding league challenging

Clearwater Midget Icehawks #5 Austin Rauch (l) and #9 Drew Johnson (r) race out of the corner after the puck during one of two games against Kamloops the weekend before last. Unfortunately

Clearwater Midget Icehawks might have won a tournament in Vanderhoof recently (as reported in our Dec. 5 issue), but that doesn’t mean they’re not finding league games challenging this season.

The team is working hard at practice with their new coaches, Darcy Elliot and Ashton Phillips and returning coach Orlynn Braaten, and is putting a good effort forth on the ice.

The Icehawks went to 100 Mile House last weekend to play some exhibition games. They will travel to Kelowna this weekend for two more league games.


The team will be off for a while over Christmas break but play will start again Jan 11. The Icehawks will be in Lillooet for their first set of league games with them this season.
