Bashaw Peewee Stars engineer one goal win over Battle River

4-3 victory on home ice marks second win of the season for squad

A late goal has given the Bashaw Stars peewee squad its second win of the season.

The Stars played host to Battle River on Nov. 24, pulling out a 4-3 victory in what was close on the scoreboard, but not on the shot clock as Bashaw outshot their opposition 41-17.

Things didn’t start out well for the Stars though, giving up a goal just over a minute into the game. Bashaw would surrender another just past the 12 minute mark of the first, before Brock Dawbin put the home side within one with just over six minutes left in the opening period.

Taylor Fankhanel would get the Stars even with 1:15 remaining the first, but Battle River would take the lead once again less than two minutes into the middle stanza.

Bashaw would continue to be stymied by the Battle River goaltender until Levi Congdon tied it for Bashaw with about eight minutes left in the second.

The third would go on much like the second, with Bashaw’s barrage of shots continuing. And the breakthrough finally came, courtesy of Dawbin who found the twine with the game winner with just over three minutes remaining.

Curt Dyberg didn’t have a lot of work between the pipes for Bashaw, but made some good stops when they were needed.

Star struck

December’s schedule for the peewee Stars is a bit of a mess at the moment with several games to be rescheduled due to various circumstances.

Meanwhile, Bashaw’s atom Stars were in Sedgewick on Nov. 25 to face Battle River and came away with a 5-4 win to remain undefeated in five games so far. Lincon Bjorge netted a hat trick with the other goals coming from Easton Sinclair and Oliver Ringwall. The atoms are back on the ice Dec. 1 in Devon.
