The Chiefs were in St. Albert Saturday and got goals from Jody Sick, Trey DeGraaf and Chase Thudium — with the winner — in a 3-2 victory over the Raiders. Jayden Sittler turned aside 14 shots in the Red Deer net.

On Sunday, the Optimist Chiefs ventured into Fort Saskatchewan and knocked off the Rangers 3-1. Jack Goranson and Dustin Gorgi potted early third-period goals for the visitors, who got an earlier marker from Jacob Schofield.

Matt Zentner made 11 saves for the win.

The Chiefs return to action Friday when they visit the Calgary Royals, then host the Lethbridge Pronghorns Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Arena.
