Alice Embroidery pulls away for big win

In the first game of the weekend, Alice Embroidery took on DJI Oilfield Hauling.

It didn’t take long for Alice’s Cory Becker to score and stake his team to a quick 1-0 lead. Almost 18 minutes later, Sam Roth scored to put his team up 2-0.

But not long after, Troy Gramlich scored to pull DJI to within one.

But just as it looked as though DJI might pull even, Alice Embroidery scored three consecutive goals to close out the first period. Those goals came courtesy Cam Ross and Shawn Rowles.

Up 5-1 at the break, Alice didn’t let up as the second period got underway. Becker and Roth each scored again for Alice, meanwhile DJI were left off the score sheet the rest of the way, and the game ended 7-1.

Clint Webber allowed just one goal on 34 shots to pick up the win in goal for Alice, while Devin Demitor made 50 saves in the loss.


Coldwell wins late

The next game saw Coldwell Banker taking on Kosmos.

And it was Coldwell who drew first blood, courtesy a goal from Travis Meiklejohn. Teammate Michael Marco followed up just a few minutes later, giving Coldwell a 2-0 lead.

But Kosmos wasn’t about to back down. Dean Charpentier scored late in the first to cut the lead to 2-1. However back-to-back goals from Scott Fleischhacker and Meiklejohn gave Coldwell a 4-1 lead at intermission.

Kosmos came out flying in the second, scoring seconds in courtesy Kraig Radtke to cut the lead to 4-2. Radtke kept the hot hand going, following that first goal up with two more for the hat-trick. Suddenly the game was all knotted at 4-4.

But just minutes later, Coldwell got a clutch goal from John Kaminski to pull ahead by one. An empty-netter from Corey Schwab followed, and Coldwell won the game 6-4.

Goaltender Coy Bunbury picked up the win for Coldwell, while Ross Foulston took the loss for Kosmos.


Boyds doesn’t look back

Next up was a contest between Leduc Chrysler and Boyds xXxCavating.

The first period was all Boyds, as they scored the only three goals of the period to lead 3-0 at intermission. Those goals came courtesy Ken Wagner, David Quiroga and Darrell Huber.

As the teams came out for the second period, momentum stayed with Boyds. Curtis Boyle scored first, followed by two goals from Brent Boyd and one more from Paul Bettio. The goal barrage gave Boyds a huge 7-0 lead.

Not about to be shut out, Leduc Chrysler managed two late goals from Gregg Smith and Ryan Lazco. However it was too little, too late as Boyds went on to win by a final score of 7-2.

James Auclair made 45 saves to pick up the win in goal for Boyds. Derek Auclair stopped 34 of the shots he faced in the loss.


Leduc Vet picks up win

The final game of the weekend had Leduc Vet Hospital taking on Janes Worldwide Travel.

It took eight minutes to break the scoreless tie, when Derek Olson scored for Leduc vet, giving them the 1-0 lead.

Minutes later, Ed Burroughs added to the lead. But just seconds after that, Janes got on the board courtesy Cam Dunn.

But two more goals for Leduc Vet (coming from Jeff Berreth and Paul Bannerman) gave Leduc Vet a 4-1 lead at intermission.

Coming out of the break, Leduc Vet added to their lead thanks to a Robert Howdle goal. Looking to get back into the game, Janes would go on to score the next two (coming from Jeff Boyle and Cam Dunn).

Dunn would score again for Janes, but not before Olson scored his second of the game for Leduc Vet. Olson would then add his hat-trick goal, putting Leduc Vet up 7-4.

Each team would go on to score one more goal: Richard Morel for Leduc Vet, and Ryan Pearson for Janes. Leduc Vet took the game by a final of 8-5.
