Hockey is back!

As the NHL got underway last week, so too did the young hockey players of Sylvan Lake. With games taking place at every skill level and age group, the unfinished Nexsource Centre was a buzz with activity as players got accustomed to their new teams, coaches and teammates.

One of those teams was the Bantam ‘A’ Lakers, who faced off against their rivals, Lacombe on Saturday, October 15 at the Nexsource Centre.

The Lakers got off to a blistering start in the first period with goals from Reece Brigley and Jordan Karcha. The second period was another story as Lacombe rattled off three quick goals to take the lead 3-2, however the Lakers were able to get one pack at the 17:36 mark of the second period as Cole Lawrence found the twine on the power play pushing the score to 3-3 going into the final period.

It would take nearly three quarters of the period before Karcha would notch his second goal of the game at the 15:48 mark.

The Lakers would hold on to the lead winning 4-3. Karcha would finsh the game with 3 points, while Aidan Sigfussen and Ashton Fonda would finish with 2 points respectively.

The weekend of October 21-23 at the Nexsource Centre features the Midget ‘A’ Lakers taking on Lacombe Friday night at 8 p.m. Saturday will feature two Atom games in the afternoon and the Bantam Lakers take on Bentley in evening at 7:45 p.m. Sunday will feature Novice, Atom and Peewee games taking place throughout the day.
