The 100 Mile House Midget Rep team has been working hard and showing a lot of heart this year in its new league of the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association.

They lost 2-1 and 4-1 to North Okanagan on Nov. 6-7,

Both games were strong and well-played,” says coach Jason Flett.

With a few lucky bounces we could have pulled ahead and won either one.

In both of the games, we had several good scoring opportunities. We just need to capitalize on these chances.”

Tanner Hooper scored and was assisted by Ryan Allen in the first game.

100 Mile’s lone in game 2 goal was scored unassisted by Curtis Green.

To put this in perspective, the more seasoned North Okanagan are currently in second place with 11 points in the highly competitive 14-team division.

On Oct. 30, the Midgets lost to Chase 2-1. Chase is currently ranked second in the male only Tier 3 division and have not lost this season.

Flett says his players are coming along well.

[100 Mile] is a young group of men who have worked hard to establish themselves and develop not only on the ice, but off the ice as well. With their hard work and dedication, success has already been achieved. “They must be given credit and acknowledgment for all they have accomplished already this season. As the season progresses, they will continue to bond and develop.

“I am confident they will strive for excellence.”

Their next game is at home against Kamloops on Nov. 20 at 11 a.m.
