Peewees challenge 100 Mile

Clearwater team wins one and ties one during games at Sportsplex

By Keith McNeill

It was one win and one tie when the Clearwater Peewees took on 100 Mile House last weekend at the Sportsplex.

On Saturday the local squad beat 100 Mile by a score of 4-2. The following day the opposing team was ahead 3-1 until Clearwater scored two goals in the last four minutes of play to tie the game 3-3.

So far this season the Peewees have five wins, one tie and the lowest penalty minutes in their league.

“This is a great team that is improving all the time and don’t give up,” said coach Barb Coates.

The Peewees applied for the “Hockey on the Hill” contest for a chance to win an all expenses paid trip to Ottawa after Christmas for a tournament. The kids had fun putting together a 30 second video for the application but, unfortunately, they did not win.

If they had won they would have played in a temporary rink built on Parliament Hill for the event. There has been a bit of hype in the media recently about how expensive the rink has been to build and operate.

The Clearwater Peewees will host a tournament on Dec. 9/10.
