Trackers jump into tie for first place with win over Wetaskiwin

The Trackers and Ice Kings had quite the eventful first period as the game got underway. Ethan Buck opened the scoring for the Trackers with an unassisted marker, and both teams went to the dressing room after 20 minutes with the score tied at three.

N.E. B.C. kept the pressure on as they scored just 10 seconds into the second period Kelsey Young found his way onto the scoresheet. The squad would round out theĀ  scoring in the game with 25 seconds left in the middle frame as Ricky Bateman give the Trackers a two goal lead.


The goal scorers in order were Ethan Buck, Brandon Howard, Alex Hanson, Kelsey Young, and Ricky Bateman. Assists went to Brandon Howard with two, Ethan Buck. Ricky Bateman, Wyatt Gale, and Matthew Apsassin. Tavis Veins was in goal and stopped 24 of the 27 shots he faced.

It’s quite the weekend for the Trackers as the schedule will see them play three games in three days. They play tonight against the Fort Saskatchewan Rangers, and wrap things up tomorrow afternoon with a tilt against the Beaumont Braves. Both contests are on the road.
