The Red Deer Motors Chiefs are the new South Central Alberta Hockey League Pee Wee AA champions.
Nolan Larson’s first period hat trick lifted the Chiefs to a 6-4 win over Lethbridge Hurricanes Red in the third and deciding game at the Collicutt Centre Sunday.
Tayler Hardman, Jaice Hardman and Lynden Robertson each added a goal for the Chiefs who held period leads of 3-1 and 5-3.
Meyer Gaume turned aside 29 shots in the Chiefs goal, while Erick Roest faced 35 shots for the Hurricanes Red.
The Hurricanes took Game 1 of the series at the Collicutt Centre 2-1 Friday night, but the Chiefs bounced back with 3-2 win in Lethbridge Saturday.
The Chiefs now advance to the Hockey Alberta provincial tournament in Edmonton March 29 – April 2. They are looking to become the first pee wee AA team from Red Deer to win the provincial crown since the Red Deer Destiny Chiefs in 2007.
