Medicine Hat News - - WORLD -

The Medicine Hat Hounds pee­wee AA hockey team picked up a B fi­nal vic­tory as hosts of their an­nual tour­na­ment this week­end at the Kin­plex.

The Hounds kicked off the event with an 8-6 come­back vic­tory over the Bran­don Wheat Kings — high­lighted by a five-goal per­for­mance from Medicine Hat’s Gavin Smith — be­fore drop­ping their first game of the sea­son, 5-7 to Bow River later that evening.

But the Hounds bounced back with an em­phatic 8-0 blowout vic- tory over the South West Zone Ed­mon­ton Oil Kings on Satur­day then dou­bled up on the Wey­burn Youngfel­low Wings, 8-4, to round out the group stage.

While the one loss was enough to drop Medicine Hat to sec­ond in their pool, they still fin­ished with vic­tory — de­feat­ing the Cen­tral Al­berta Selects 9-5 on Sun­day morn­ing.
