Both Southeast Athletic Club Tigers teams have started their respective seasons with positive results.
The midget 15-year-old SEAC team is now tied for first in the AMMHL South Division, improving to 3-1-1 after recording a tie and a win on the weekend. They drew the Calgary Stampeders 2-2 Saturday night at Hockey Hounds, then went on the road Sunday and beat Calgary’s Rangers 5-3.
Jarred Schrock and Tanner Gold scored third-period goals to erase a 2-0 deficit Saturday, their team peppering goalie Zoltan Bencsik with 48 shots. Hat goalie Aidan Low surrendered two goals in the first period but made 13 saves in the final 40 minutes to help earn the single point.
On Sunday, Evan Gebhart scored twice, Ethan Machan got the eventual game-winner in the third and both Carsyn Good and Braden Houle scored on the Rangers. Brendan Olson made 39 saves in a game where both sides’ offences were clicking. Shots were 46-42 for the Tigers.
Best of all they play their next four games on home ice, beginning with a tilt vs Lloydminster on Saturday at 5pm at the Hockey Hounds Arena.
A pair of home wins has pushed the bantam AAA Tigers’ record to 4-2-1.
On Saturday they beat the Calgary Royals 5-1, breaking a 1-1 tie with four unanswered goals in the third period.
Matthew MacPherson had a goal and two assists. Kieran Christianson, Vann Yuhas, Roman Cherniak and Josh Drefs also scored.
Shots were 54-19 in SEAC’s favour, making for an easier night for winning goalie Bodee Weiss.
It was another third-period rally Sunday, as Tyler Broesky scored his second with 14:29 to go, then assisted on MacPherson’s insurance marker with 4:52 left. MacPherson also set up Dawson Seitz as both teams scored twice in the opening frame.
Shots were 35-33 for the Tigers, with Kaiden Morin taking the win in net.
