Predators getting lots of ice time

Minor Hockey action is in full swing at the Midway arena.

Boundary Predator Pee Wee player Ben Macfarlane moves the puck up the ice in a recent game against the Grand Forks Bruins at Midway arena.

The Boundary Predators teams now have two weekends under their belts. Last Sunday saw a full day of action with three games on home ice in Midway.

The Predator Pee Wees played a great game against the Nakusp Falcons that ended in a 5-5 tie. Rylonn Elliot got a hat trick and Marcus Getz and Sarah MacDonald each scored a goal. Assists went to Elliot (1), Stephen Kohler (1), Ben Macfarlane (1) and Getz (2).

Boundary Predator Atoms fell 11-5 to the Nakusp Falcons. Danny Macfarlane scored four goals and Aiden Colin got the other. Two assists apiece to Wade Macdonald and Charles Foy.

The Midget House team were defeated by the Spokane War Horse1 by a score of 7-2. Patrick Cudworth scored both Predator goals and Tanner Watson got an assist.

The previous week (Oct. 25) home ice action saw the Midget Predators outscore a tired Coeur D’Alene team 5-3. The Coeur D’Alene Thunder team was finishing up a weekend on the road, with two games in the Kootenays on Saturday; and they were light on the bench as well, with only nine players dressed for the game. In that game the Predator Midgets Derik Launier got one goal. Patrick Cudworth scored the other four for the home team. Assists went to Kari Durban, Derik Launier (2), Sheinah Bosovich, Adam Tereshita, John-Thomas Boltz and Tanner Watson.

Also on Oct. 25 the Pee Wee Predators dropped their first game of the season to Grand Forks2 by a score of 8-2. Elliot scored both goals for the Pee Wee Predators; with one assist going to Grayson Fromme.

The Predator Midgets team have two away games on Saturday. They are playing Greater Trail1 at 10:15 in Rossland and go up against Greater Trail 2 at 4:15 in Beaver Valley.

This Sunday (Nov. 9) there are three games scheduled at the Midway arena. The Predator Novice team is on the ice at 10:45 a.m.; Atoms take on Kaslo at noon and the Pee Wees are up against Greater Trail1 at 2 p.m.

On the fundraising front, Rick Lindseth won the Boundary Minor Hockey World Series Grid Raffle.
