Lightning iced at provincials

COLD LAKE — The Stettler Lightning created very few sparks in the Alberta Junior B hockey championship tournament.

The Heritage League Northern Conference champions, in fact, posted a dismal 0-3 record, losing 4-2 and 3-1 to the Fort Saskatchewan Hawks and Lloydminster Bandits Thursday and Friday, respectively, and 5-2 to the Whitecourt Wolverines in their final game Saturday.

Ryan Teske notched two of Stettler’s five goals in the tournament, with Paul Ivey, who also had three assists, Robb David and Adam McDavid each scoring once.

The Heritage League champion Cochrane Generals were 2-1 in pool play, recording respective 6-4 and 6-5 wins over the Sherwood Park Knights and host Cold Lake Ice, and falling 5-4 to the Calgary Royals Blue. The Generals then dropped a 5-1 semifinal decision to Lloydminster.

Lloydminster defeated Whitecourt 4-2 in the provincial final.
