Cochrane Chaos players dominate the south division roster for the 2019 all-star game of the Alberta Junior Female Hockey League being held tomorrow, Jan. 5, in Ardrossan.

Seven Chaos, the most from any team in the south division, will be lacing up for the game. Playing are goalie Jenna Weseen, Kirsten Mumby on defence and forwards Aspen Kozak, Audrey Buston, Faith Gette, Ryann Atwasser and Shelby Kirkpatrick.

Chaos head coach Derek Loomer says they might have even had more players in the lineup had some more of their other top defensive players were available to play.

The roster of 20 for the south division also includes former Chaos teammate Bre Martin, who now plays for the Central Alberta Amazon. Besides the Chaos and Amazon, there players from all of the other south teams: Calgary Titans, Calgary Jags and the Lethbridge Eagles

The league champion Sherwood Park Steele dominate the north division roster with seven players, closely followed by the Edmonton Wolves with six. The Irma Chargers and Fort Saskatchewan Fury are also represented.

The annual event kicks off at 12:30 p.m. with a skills competitions for fastest skater, shot accuracy and hardest shot, followed by a shootout challenge. The game follows at 2:15 p.m.

Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, the league’s all-star game will get some extra exposure, thanks to Rogers Hometown Hockey who are in Sherwood Park this weekend. Tara Sloan, from Hometown Hockey, and Edmonton Oilers alumni Sean Brown will be participating in the ceremonial puck drop.

Chaos Back on Top

Heading into the second half of the season, the Chaos have climbed back to the top of the south division with important 4-3 win over the Central Alberta Amazons, Dec. 16, to wrap up play in 2018.

The Chaos took a 4-0 lead late into the game but the Amazons came back to score three to close the gap.

“I think the score really flattered them,” says Loomer. “We should have won by a dozen.”

“There were a lot of penalties called late in the game both ways and it changed the flow a little bit and cost us a few goals to make it close, but it never really felt close through the whole game.”

“It got tighter than it needed to be but at the end of the day we held on and kept the win which was really the most important part.”

The Chaos are on a six-game winning streak.

“This is where we want to be and hopefully we'll stay there. The girls are ready for the second half. I think they enjoyed the break and are eager to get back to work.”

Regular season play resumes on Jan. 12 against the Amazons. The teams are 1-1 after their first two meetings.
