The Coronation Novice Royals won big at the Killam Warriors Novice Tournament the weekend of February 7, 2014. Even with the frigid cold temperatures outside, the Royals were hot on the ice!
Game one was played against Daysland. The first 10 minutes of the game were fast paced and the goalies were stopping everything. The Royals turned up the heat with Jesse Tkach scoring the first goal, assisted by Layton Perry.
Daysland came right back with Dylan Kruchten scoring their first goal. It was all Royals after that, with the final score being Coronation 14 goals, Daysland one. The Heart and Hustle award went to Layton Perry of Coronation and Bryn Weinkauf of Daysland.
The Novice Royals played their second game against the hosting team the Killam Warriors. Killam started the game strong and with a fast pace, with Porter Lang scoring the opening goal just four minutes into the first period. Then Killam’s Anson Helperl took a tripping penalty and Coronation came back strong with a power play goal scored by Layton Perry and assisted by Addison Scoville.
Coronation didn’t stop there, with the first period ending with a Coronation lead of six to one. The next two periods were filled with Killam penalties and the Coronation Royals took full advantage. Final score was Coronation Royals 21 to Killam Warriors four. Heart and Hustle was awarded to Killam’s Aidan Borgel and Coronation’s Addison Scoville.
Air ambulance tourney
The annual Cowboy’s Tournament for STARS Air Ambulance was held in Hanna the weekend of February 7, 2014. In the A division, the Renegades from Olds beat the Luscar team in a shoot out 6 – 5. All the proceeds from the tournament went to STARS.
The Renegades team has been playing in the Cowboys for STARS tournament for a number of years, with Rod Scoville as the one original member and team organizer. Scoville has played in the tournament for 22 years.
When the team originated he and his teammates were going to college in Olds, and the team was originally called the Old’s Renegades. Over the years this team has replaced its players with a few of the younger cowboys and has dropped the “Old’s” from its name. They have been fortunate to win in a few occasions, including this year.
