Jan 13 - A barn burner in Dodge for the Midgets, entertaining the high flying Rosetown Hanney team. A great, end to end thriller once again had KDL tired and down by 2 goals late in the third, Cole Kissick would come in on net and work his magic making it 5-4 and with time running out and the KDL net empty, Tyler Birn walked in and shoveled it past the Rosetown minder to salvage a tie 5-5. The last few games have provided the fans with some very competitive entertaining hockey.
Kissick from Kissick and Kissick!
Jan 10- Returning to Macklin, the only team to beat the KDL Midgets so far this season for a return match on Saturday. In an end to end game KDL was playing catch up all night. At best they would tie the game only to have Macklin move ahead. Passes intercepted, penalties and 2 of the top scorers in the league caused KDL grief all night. Down by a goal late in the third, Wyatt Knorr would bury one from Hunter Thomson to tie the game. Then, with only 19 seconds left on the clock, and KDL short handed, in a flash, James Semilet moved the puck up to Cole Kissick who shipped up to Ryder Kissick and finally to Reid Kissick who put it in the with net with 7 seconds left for the winner and hand Macklin a heartbreaking loss, 5-4. Kissick from Kissick and Kissick!
KDL Midgets entertained Eston Friday night and what looked like was going to end in a no score tie with seconds left on the clock, Cole Kisick turned and ripped a surprise shot past the solid Eston Goaltender. KDL wins a tight one 1-0 ! Wade Pinno played his first game in net coming off an injury and turned away every shot for the shut out!
There is no level of hockey below the house level. If kids aren't allowed to play at this level they have to drop out. The objective for all of Minor Hockey is skill development for all participants, not winning at any cost or to groom kids for elite hockey! All Minor Hockey Associations must constantly ask themselves "are all participants being treated fairly?"

For the Sake of the Game!
