White Lightning strikes Seeco

Elks team prevails 7-3 over Drive in Atom C minor hockey action

n the wee hours of Sunday morning (6:30 a.m.), Atom C hockey witnessed a battle of two fine teams when the Elks White Lightning faced off against the Seeco Automotive Drive.

As always, Elks goaltender Scott Behrens was a master of the save.  He confidently stopped breakaways and pounced on the puck during many a scramble in front of the net.  Scott was ably assisted by his solid defencemen. Again and again, Sophia Lister, Braydon ‘Basher’ Arcand, Aiden Reid, Owen Mann, and Jackson Robertson told the Drive, “You shall not pass!”

The defensive grind was matched by offensive hustle at the other end of the ice. Matthew Teasdale scored four goals. One goal was unassisted and he was assisted on the others by amazing passes from Avery Bayles, Keegan Slater and Brandon Watson.

Logan Walker scored a goal on an exciting breakaway.  Calum Barr capitalized by scoring after a beautiful pass from Logan Walker.  Kevin Mulroney raised the puck and shot a dart into the back of the net.  Emily Wardle continued her great positional play at left wing and had multiple scoring opportunities.

Although the Seeco squad tried valiantly to keep the Drive alive, the White Lightning prevailed with a final score of 7 to 3. Thank you to the brother and sister referee team of Iain and Devan who did a great job and kept the game clean, fair and fun.
