The Crowsnest Pass U11 Thunder kicked off their regular season with an away game in Vulcan. They were down 2-0 by the end of the first period, but had a strong comeback in the second with four goals, and then they added three more to their lead in the third. The final score for this game was 7-2 for the Thunder.

Jax Fulkerth scored a goal, and two of their players got hat tricks: Griffin Luini and Nash Lafreniere. Chase Legroulx got one assist, and both Abbot Graham and Nash Lafreniere got two assists.

The team hit home ice for the first time during the regular season the next afternoon versus the Cardston Thunder, and they got to enter the ice just like the pros with lights down, a fog machine, and strobe lights going while each player’s name was announced! Shannon Burton also sang our national anthem for the special occasion.

This game was certainly a close one throughout. Cardston was up 1-0 by the end of the first period, but then the Crowsnest Pass scored two goals in the second period, within a couple minutes of each other, to narrow the gap to 3-2.

Cardston scored in the final five seconds of the second to make it 4-2, and in the third, the Thunder scored two more goals, but their opponents also scored one. Our C.N.P. Thunder fought hard to tie it up in the final moments of the third, but in the end the score was 5-4 for Cardston.

Chase Legroulx and Nash Lafreniere each scored one goal, and Jax Fulkerth scored two goals, with one assist each for Chase Legroulx, Cruz McKee, Jax Fulkerth and Abbot Graham.

This Sunday, Nov. 26, the U11 Thunder team will head to Picture Butte to face off versus the Blades. Puck drops at 1:30 p.m. at the North County Recreation Complex.
