Hockey Season is Underway

Bantams, 14U and High School Teams Hit the Ice


The 2016-2017 Ice Dawg hockey season kicked off with the 14U girls traveling to Miles City Nov. 12, the high school boys traveling for games against Butte and Great Falls Nov. 12-13, and the bantams hosting games at the Valley Event Center Nov. 11 and 12.

The 14U girls had the most success, winning both games on the road, 9-1 and 4-3. According to coach Paul Provencher, everyone worked together and several players were responsible for the outcome of the game. "I'm very pleased with the whole team," he said. "The season is young and there is still room for improvement." The 14U girls are scheduled to play again in Crosby, N.D. Saturday, Dec. 3.

The high school team fell to Butte in their first game on Friday afternoon with a score of 9-1. The lone goal was scored by Taylor Padden. Although Glasgow suffered another loss in the second game against Butte, the final score showed some improvement. The Ice Dawgs put three goals on the board, with Bridger Barnett knocking in one unassisted during the first period, and Padden scoring the second and third goals with assists from Taylor Johnson. The final score was 7-3 in favor of Butte.

Next, the boys were in Great Falls to face the Americans in two games. The first game took place at 8 p.m. on Nov. 12. It was a good match up and the teams found themselves tied up in the third period. In what coach Tim Padden described as a "heartbreaker," the Americans pulled their goalie late in the period and successfully scored on the Ice Dawgs with just 22 seconds left in the game, earning them the 4-3 win. Padden scored one goal with an assist from Marshall Bragg, and also knocked in one unassisted. Johnson scored the final goal of the game for the Dawgs with Padden getting the assist.

The second game vs. Great Falls was held Sunday morning and was another evenly matched contest. The Americans managed to notch another win however, finishing the game on top with a score of 4-2. Barnett scored with an assist from Padden, who also found the back of the net with an assist from Johnson.

The high school team is scheduled to play again at home Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 18 against Bozeman.

The Bantams hosted Flathead and Helena, with action beginning with Flathead and Glasgow facing off Friday evening. The Fusion dominated the entire contest and skated away with a 12-3 win over the Dawgs. Splitting the pipes for the Dawgs: Koby Regalado with an assist from Nicholas Burke, Kristian Price off Regalado and Ike Braaten, and Braaten unassisted.

The Dawgs managed to rein in the Fusion during the second contest, holding them to a four-point win 9-5. Lighting up the scoreboard for Glasgow were: Braaten with three unassisted goals, Burke with an unassisted goal, and Kaden Kummerfeldt with a goal off Burke.

The evening of Nov. 12 was the first of two games against Helena for the bantams, and the Ice Dawgs were defeated in a 12-0 shut-out. Glasgow fared slightly better in the second game the next morning, scoring two goals to Helena's 12 for another loss. Braaten found the back of the net for both goals with assists from Price and Brayden Hansen.

The Bantams will play again this coming weekend, Nov. 19 and 20 vs. Bozeman.
