Pincher Creek' Midget Huskies were able to easily keep their flawless record intact Friday January 3rd against the Kainai Chiefs in their first game and win of the new year. The Huskies rolled to a huge 19-3 win at the MCC, getting on the board early with a goal not even one minute in, and a big offensive show in the third capped off a game that keeps their record perfect before their annual tournament, to be held this coming weekend January 9-11.

Huskies head coach Kent Goodreau served the last game of his suspension with his team faring pretty well without him, but they're happy that he will be back for the major tournament.

There were 10 different goalscorers for the Huskies in the game against Kainai. Derek Tarcon led the team with 4 goals, followed closely by Tyson Goodreau and Craig Marshall who earned 3 goals and an assist each. Tyson did have an apparent goal disallowed halfway through the second period after the ref ruled it was knocked down by a high stick. Griffin Healy scored 2 goals for Kainai in a late offensive burst nearing the end of the third, but it was too little too late. Kainai’s goaltender Nicolas Chief Moon went down with an apparent injury after taking a puck to the shoulder on a breakaway shot by Nic Jordan, but stayed in the game and made some great glove saves late in the game. Jeremy Kretz was in net as always for the Huskies and didn't see too much action early in the game but still kept the puck out until late in the second, when he was caught sleeping on a shot from the blue line.

The Huskies want to continue their winning streak into their tournament.  They are scheduled to play their first game against the Wheatland Thrashers on Friday at 8:00 pm. They would have had another game to prepare, against Bow Island, but that one was canceled because of inclement weather. The Huskies are hoping to make it to the Gold medal game late Sunday, which includes prize money for the winner.
