Coaldale Copperheads this past weekend had their first overnight road swing bringing home two out of four league points.
Saturday night in Didsbury the Snakes put shot the Colts 37-33 in the sixty minutes. Copperheads lead the scoring throughout the whole game taking a 4-2 victory. A hat trick came off the hot hands of Isaac Benoit plus a single from Brandyn Howg. Foremost netminder Ethan Barrows has a solid performance.
The team continued on northward for Sunday action at the Rocky Mountain House Rams arena.
It was not the outcome the Snake ventured for taking a 6-5 loss with the winning goal scored very late in the third. This brings the Copperheads record to 13-7-1 currently in third of the HJHL south division.
Sunday’s game Broc Merkl was in net with double goals from Jason Creighton; singles from Ty Anderson, Jedd Horvath and Alex Saworski.
Next on the agenda is a road game Friday, Nov. 29, to Airdrie for an HJHL last season rematch. Saturday, Nov. 30, will close off November with a home game against the Lomond Lakers.
It’s the Copperheads second annual theme of “Wear your favourite Jersey” game night. Puck drop is set for 8:30 p.m. at the Snake Pit, with warmups starting at 8 p.m.
