The NGC Pee­wee Rap­tors ended their sea­son by push­ing In­dus to the brink, and into the third game of the fi­nal.

It was close but In­dus took game three 8-5, cap­ping off the sea­son. For Cam Batty, coach of the Rap­tors, he was im­pressed with how his team played.

“It was a dis­ap­point­ing way to end the sea­son, but in all it was a very suc­cess­ful sea­son,” said Batty.

Game one of the Se­ries was last Fri­day in Gle­ichen. Zachary Caw­iezel and Tan­ner Moul­ton each scored on as In­dus went once to a 4-2 win.

Game two was back at the Drumheller Memo­rial Arena and this time Caw­iezel had two goals and Dax­ton Mul­grew con­trib­uted one in the 3-2 win.

This brought the se­ries back to In­dus. This time Evan Mont­gomery was hot with two goals and an as­sist. Caw­iezel and Mul­grew each had one goal and two as­sists, and Joel Howard scored one.

Coach Batty said he was most im­pressed team’s at­ti­tude.

“They re­ally im­ple­mented our sys­tems of team play and re­ally fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing as a team, and us­ing team­mates to their ad­van­tage,” he said. “A lot of them put the team be­fore them­selves.” with the

The team also per­formed well, de­spite of­ten be­ing out­num­bered. With only 11 on the bench, they gave 100 per cent on the ice. The team has about four first year play­ers, so that means a strong con­tin­gent of play­ers will be mov­ing up to ban­tam.
