Peewee LL's continue up and down season with home loss to Mitchell
Submitted By Dan Bachert on Saturday, January 11, 2014
The Seaforth Peewee LL's were back on the ice for the home end of a back to back against their rivals to the east, Mitchell Meteors.  Seaforth had finished off 2013 in impressive fashion going into Mitchell on Dec. 29th and coming out on the right end of a 5-3 score.   Carried by some strong play in net by Blake Poppe, the team proved that passing is a key to success on the ice and were victorious in ending a three game losing streak.

With 2013 in the books, the team took to their home ice against the Meteors looking to follow up on their strong performance to end December.  After having an extended time off the ice, one wasn't sure if the team would come out with lots of energy and focus or if there would be some obvious rust.  As usually is the case, the team came out very flat, and after the opening frame were down by a 4-0 score.

Halfway through the second frame, the visitors added a fifth goal and were full marks for the lead.  Evan Chisholm would score soon into the third to get the home side on the ledger but it was a case of too little too late.  Mitchell would add a final goal to take the game by a 6-1 score. While the home Stars carried the play at times a constant parade to the penalty box, with over half the team spending some time in the sin bin would prevent the Peewee LL's from gaining any serious momentum.  Too many individual efforts,failed toe drags and selfish trips to the penalty box proved once more the recipe for defeat. 

With little time to dwell on the loss, the Stars head north to Wingham on Jan. 12, and hope that strong positional play from front to back, passing and timely shooting will get the Peewee LL's back in the win column.
