They may not be in first, but the Cochrane Chaos Junior female hockey team has the best record in the entire south division of the Alberta Junior Female Hockey League.
With their bye week all but over, the team is now gearing up to hit the road for the next two weekends.
Also on the road last weekend, the Chaos held a two-goal leading heading into the third against the Sherwood Park Steele, the top team in the north. The Steele evened it up in regulation. After sudden death, it ended in a 2-2 tie.
Chaos head coach Derek Loomer says the team was disappointed in letting the Steele back into the game.
"I thought the girls played hard. It's disappointing when you're up by two going into the third to end up with a tie, but overall it was pretty good," says Loomer.
"This is another opportunity to look at situations and what you have to do to finish off a game like that and stay on the winning side."
The Sherwood Park game marked the return of Audrey Buston, the leading scorer for the Chaos last season. She's been out of the country.
The Chaos have a 5-1-1 record seven games into the season, with their only blemish coming in a loss against the much improved Calgary Titans.
The Titans are first with a 7-3-1 record, but the Chaos have four games in hand.
The Chaos have a chance to even the score with the Titans on Nov. 17 in Calgary. The following weekend they travel north to face the defending champion Edmonton Wolves and Irma Chargers.
Their next home game is Nov. 29 against the Lethbridge Eagles.
