A tough weekend saw the Three Hills Thrashers drop a pair of games against two Northern division opponents.
On Friday night, the Mountain View Colts again visited Centennial Place Arena. Tyler Newsham scored his fifth goal of the season on a power-play midway through the opening stanza to give Three Hills an early lead. Tyrell McCubbing notched his fourth goal of the season a few minutes into the second period to extend the Thrashers lead. However, the Colts finally capitalized on their scoring
The Acme Redmen Senior Boys Volleyball Team won silver at the Vulcan tournament held October 28 and 29. The boys played Picture Butte, Fort Macleod, Vauxhall, Eckville, and in the semi final won against Senator Gershaw Bow Island and lost the gold medal match to St. Mary’s Taber. It was apparently a very tough tournament with a lot of great teams playing, and Acme played well over their “pay scale” to come up in second place.
The Acme Senior Boys volleyball team won gold at a regular season tournament in Cremona on October 22. Acme went 10-0 defeating Cremona, Sundre, and Olds during round robin playoffs.
