Meet the newest hockey team in town.

Midget team is back in action

Meet the newest hockey team in town. The Midgets are back in Princeton.

Princeton’s Midgets opened exhibition with a 4-2 loss in a Tier 4 Rep game on Saturday to Sicamous.

The Princeton team earned respect after taking back control of the game for much of the last two periods. The squad opened the scoring early on with a goal by Kolton Smith only to surrender four first period goals. To a one the players responded in the second then third and were unlucky not to be rewarded with a victory, settling for a lone second period tally by Craig Thompson while Ryan Grgich shut the door in net.

For an opening test the team passed easily. The team was to play a home exhibition game Sunday but a shortage of officials forced a last minute cancellation.

Clinics are on over the next month and anyone interested in helping replenish Princeton’s officiating inventory is asked to contact Minor Hockey or drop by the arena for info Tuesday or Thursday 7:45 – 9 p.m. L

eague play opens the last weekend in September. Anyone visiting the north Okanagan can catch the team in a Sicamous tournament over the Thanksgiving weekend.
