Pee Wee AAs win league title

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.
