Clearwater Midgets beat 100 Mile House twice

Clearwater Midgets played two exhibition games against 100 Mile House at the Sportsplex last weekend and won both. The scores were 5-1 and 11-3.

“Hundred Mile was undisciplined and took several penalties,” said Clearwater coach Tim Walker. “We had a huge landmark in the first game by taking only one penalty (never happened before) but this is one of our chief aims this year.”

Walker said one particular 100 Mile House player was a hazard, running around injuring people. Apparently he took out two Clearwater players during game one.

Because of the small size of the program, Clearwater Midgets are classified as a Tier 4 team this year. However, they are playing in a Tier 3 league because there aren’t enough Tier 4 teams nearby. Only Kelowna has another Tier 4 team.

“This puts us playing more skilled teams with more players,” said Walker. “Even so, we have done well and are growing each game. Though we didn’t win any league games yet this year, we have come very close.”

The local squad will host the Midget Tier 4 provincial championships again this year and are looking forward to it, the Clearwater coach reported.

“We have several league games left. Next weekend we will face Kelowna Tier 4 at home both Saturday and Sunday. We also have home games Dec 14, 20, 21 and Jan 17,18, 24,” Walker said.
