West Central Midget Tigers pounce on Airdrie

The Tigers’ regular season record is 10-1-2 after two wins this weekend

The West Central Midget Tigers mauled the Airdrie Lightning 4-0 on Nov. 16 at the Nexsource Centre.

The Tigers also faced off against Olds on Nov. 18 and came out witg a 5-3 win on the road.

The team’s regular season record is now 10 wins, one loss and two ties.

“We’ve only played 13 games, so 10 wins out of 13 games is extremely good,” said Team Manager Terry Somerville, who added the team is hoping to finish first in the league.

Somerville explained the team goals are to continue winning and build a strong team bond.

“We really put a lot of focus on our player development and our player dynamics inside of our group,” continued Somerville.

The Tigers are heading to Las Vegas for the Silver Stick Tournament on Nov. 22-25.

The Tigers’ next home game is Dec. 8 in Eckville and the team will be back in the Nexsource Centre on Dec. 22.
