Outlaws rounded up in Bantam tourney

This past weekend the Fort Macleod Outlaws participated in a Bantam hockey tournament in Picture Butte.
On Saturday afternoon the Outlaws played against the host team and it was quite a game.
All of the Outlaws team members were in the arena but on the ice they were missing Brooklyn Housenga due to a knee injury.
So it was up to the remaining 12 skaters and Ty Odney in net.
The first period started out fast and full of action. I was not at the game but from the texts I received it was a good game.
Picture Butte held the lead until the second period when Fort Macleod tied the game.
Things were going well for the Outlaws until some penalty minutes added up and Picture Butte ended up winning the game 8-5.
Fort Macleod goal scorers were Tyrus White Cow, Colten Holtz, Lucky David, Brady Welsh and Riley Vanee, all with one goal each. Assists went to Colten Holtz and Christine Scout Bastien.
Game 2 was against the Lethbridge Rebels.
The Outlaws were short the brother duo of Wilfred and Jordan North Peigan so Christine Scout Bastien moved up to forward to join Mary Many Bears (one assist) and Riley Vanee (one goal).
The other line of forwards was Colten Holtz (one goal), Brad Finnson (two assists) and Tyrus White Cow (two goals).
The defence had two lines including Lucky David (one assist), Brady Welsh (one goal, one assist), Sunny-Dawn Bruised Head (one assist) and Eric Maskowitz (one assist).
Everyone was working hard and although Lethbridge was first on the scoreboard Fort Macleod kept the lead until the third period.
Lethbridge scored two quick goals to tie the game and put it into overtime. After a nearly complete period the Outlaws were tired but in the last 15 seconds Riley Vanee scored unassisted to give Fort Macleod the win and the chance to play for second place in the tournament on Sunday.
Game 3 was played Sunday morning against the Lethbridge Hitmen with nine Outlaws skaters and faithful goalie Ty.
There were no goals in the first period and the action was back and forth in the second with Lethbridge scoring three and Fort Macleod scoring two goals.
Both goals for the Outlaws were scored by Riley Vanee unassisted.
In the third period Lethbridge continued with two more goals and the final score was 5-3.
Thanks to coaches for the weekend Dave Housenga, Perry Odney and Dale Holtz who kept these tired kids going for all three games.
The Bantam Outlaws have a break for the holidays and action will resume Friday, Jan. 7 in Fort Macleod versus Blackie at 8 p.m.
On Saturday, Jan. 8 the Outlaws are off to Vulcan.
Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year!
