Alex Glen

The 100 Mile House Midget Rec team fought hard against Merritt on Dec. 3, but, unfortunately, they lost 7-5.

Morris Bob opened the scoring with his first goal of the season, with assists by Luke Jewitt and Mackenzie Menzel.

Merritt woke up by the end of the first period with two unanswered goals. The visitors scored two more at the start of the second.

Peter Peterson managed to score the lone 100 Mile House goal in the second period, with assists going to Colby McCullough and Menzel. Merritt answered with two more markers to lead 6-2 at the end of the second stanza.

However, 100 Mile didn’t give up, as they blazed back with three goals in the third period.

New team member Brandon Balbirnie scored a short-handed goal with the assist by Peterson. Then Jewitt sniped the home team’s fourth goal on helpers from McCullough and Stephen Theodore-Jensen.

Merritt scored its final goal with two minutes left in the third, but Dylan Newhook replied seven seconds later making the final 7-5 for Merritt.
