Clearwater Novice Raptor Lars Dowker keeps the puck away from an opponent during one of two exhibition games against Chase at the Sportsplex on Sunday. The Raptors had smiles and had a great time, despite losing both games. Sophie Collins scored the only goal for Clearwater, during the first game. The team’s goalie, Tyler MacDonald, put in admirable effort. The two teams will meet again on Jan. 19 in Chase for a tournament game. The Novice home tournament will be held Jan. 30-31.
