As the hockey season continues, Magrath Chief teams were back on the ice this past weekend for Central Alberta Hockey League’s regular season.
The U11 Chiefs had a pair of home games on their schedule this past weekend.
On Friday night, Cardston rolled into town and skated to a 14-1 win over the Chiefs. Aliza Brown had the lone Chief marker. Andreas Brown got the start in net and posted 34 saves.
On Saturday morning, Okotoks Green came to Magrath and won a close 4-2 game over the home team. Chief goals came from Aliza Brown, while Breckynn Bates had a pair of assists and Chase Ririe had a single assist. Andreas Brown was busy in net again as 52 shots were fired at the netminder.
The U11s have another two games this coming weekend as they hit the road. On Saturday, they travel to Cardston for an 11:45 a.m. rematch and then on Sunday, they head to Fort Macleod for a 10:30 a.m. puck drop.
In a single game over the past weekend, the U13 Chiefs took care of business as they skated to a 9-6 win at home over Vulcan on Saturday.
Plenty of Chief players found the scoresheet in the win and Riley Schneyder led the way with four goals and two assists.
