Midget Lakers lose tough one to Drumheller

The midget Sylvan Lake Canadian Tire Lakers lost in a barn burner against Drumheller.

The midget Sylvan Lake Canadian Tire Lakers lost in a barn burner against Drumheller on Saturday, December 9.

The Lakers would start out strong in the first period with a goal from Blake Carrick, however Drumheller would immediately answer back with a goal from Ryan Hems. This trend would continue with Carrick scoring an unassisted snipe at the 11:14, followed by Drumheller notching another from Nathan Waiboer at 7:45 leading to a 2-2 tie.

Laker forward Ryan Hewitt would notch his second of the game at 10:33 of the second, followed by another Drumheller answer from Hems. The Lakers would finally grab a lead with Carrick’s second of the game and the Lakers fourth goal of the game leading to 4-3 lead heading into the decisive third period.

The Laker’s looked to be pulling away when Carrick finished off the hat trick at the 15:07 mark of the third leading to 5-3 lead, however the Laker’s composure would be severed after Drumheller would bang home four unanswered goals leading to a final score of 7-5.

Carrick would finish the night with three points, while Hewitt would add two of his own. The game was a chirpy affair, with both teams racking up 33 minutes in the box. Laker Nicholas Barkman for the Lakers and Drumheller foward Tyler Ferguson would both receive game misconducts after an altercation in the first period stemming from two unsportsmanlike infractions.

The Lakers look to rebound from this tough loss with a game in Blackfalds on Saturday. For more information about the Laker schedule, you can log on to sylvanlakeminorhockey.com
