Midgets win first round of playoffs

Second round will start at the Sportsplex in Clearwater on Saturday

Clearwater Midget Ice Hawks defeated West Kelowna in Clearwater and in West Kelowna during the first round of the playoffs last weekend, according to coach Ole Kjenstad.

“We went to West Kelowna Saturday and with a very short bench pulled off a 5-2 win,” he said. “With only nine skaters, the kids had the best effort of the year.”

Kjenstad noted that the first round playoff win is a first for a Clearwater Midget team in many years.

The second round will start here in Clearwater this coming Saturday. Exact time has not yet been announced.

“Would be nice to fill the building,” said Kjenstad.
