Two Cochrane junior teams are striving to keep their perfect records intact today in a pair of home games.
The Cochrane Generals are now 6-0 after a convincing 8-3 win on the road against the High River Flyers on Friday night. This afternoon at 2:30 p.m. (Sunday, Oct. 2), the 1-1 Medicine Hat Cubs are in town for their only visit to Cochrane during the regular season.
The Cochrane Chaos beat the Lakeland Rustlers 5-1 on home ice last night at Totem One and host the Lethbridge Eagles this afternoon at 3 p.m.
The Gens came out blazing in High River after taking them too lightly in their first meeting five days earlier.
They grabbed a 6-0 lead after one with Tristan Ripplinger, Patrick Forde, and Dagan Kadlec all scoring a pair.
The second was scoreless, and the teams had two apiece in the third, with Connor Stephenson and Jamal Kalaf scoring for the Gens.
The Gens are now one, two, three in HJHL scoring. Linemates Patrick Forde, Dean Olenyk, and Tristan Ripplinger are at the top.
Gibbons opens scoring for Chaos
Summer Gibbons once again opened the scoring for the Chaos with the lone goal of the first. Callie Cummins and Sarah Nusl added a pair in the second to grab a 3-1 lead. Kelly Stanford and Carley Wlad made it a 5-1 final.
The Chaos, too, have the top scorers in their provincewide league. Stanford is at the top, with Summer Gibbons and Callie Cummins just one point behind.
