It was back on the ice this past weekend for the Carlyle Cougars.
They didn’t have the final scores that they were looking to open with, but they were still playing. The team has three new players this year that they’d like to welcome: Jon Gaudet, Dawson Lawrence and Preston Carriere.
The Redvers Rockets came into Carlyle Friday and left with a 9-1 win. They are a powerhouse team and Landon Audet stood on his head, making save after save.
The Cougars were on the board first with a goal from Brett Turgeon, assisted by Clayton Geiger and Jesse Matthewson, just five mins into the game. The first ended with a score of 1-1, and then it was Redvers leading 4-1 after two and a 9-1 final.
Saturday, the Cougars headed to Redvers and they did end up doubling their goal total. Both games had a lot of action. There were a tonne of shots and our score didn’t lack any trying. It was 3-0 Redvers after the first.
Ben Johnstone got the Cougars on the board in the second with an assist from Gaudet, making it 4-1 after 2. Marc Shaw added to that for us in the third with helpers from Preston Carriere and Branden Lequyer. The final score was 9-2 Redvers and Brandon Glasser made his way into net in the third for us, also making some beauty saves.
On Nov. 14, the Cougars will be in Wawota to play the Flyers, on Nov. 20, the Kipling-Windthorst Oil Capitals come to town and the Cougars head back there on the 21st.
