The Beaumont Chiefs had a great home game on Friday, Nov. 22 against the Wetaskiwin Icemen, completely shutting their rivals out 8-0 and adding another win to their resume.
“Can’t ask for much better than that in front of a home crowd on a Friday night,” said Chiefs head coach Anthony D’Amore.
“Wetaskiwin always plays a tough physical game and we didn’t let that stop us from sticking to our game plan.”
This season the Chiefs have seen success against the Icemen, beating them twice previously.
“We were expecting quite a battle as we’ve beaten them twice and I know they were looking to take one … the boys played a pretty good team game and we didn’t back down.”
On Tuesday, Nov. 26 the Chiefs beat the Sherwood Park Knights 5-1, continuing their winning way and remaining at the top of the leaderboard.
Now on a six-game winning streak, the Chiefs are staying focused on their goal of making a deep run in the playoffs, D’Amore said.
“It’s coming together at the right time of year. We just have to keep that up and make sure we don’t let bad habits creep into our game.”
On Nov. 29 the Chiefs face off with the Fort Saskatchewan Hawks, followed by a Sunday game against the Strathcona Bruins on Nov. 1.
It’s been several weeks since the Chiefs played either team, so D’Amore is expecting two more tough but exciting games.
“I’m sure they’re going to be bringing something to the table … but I’m pretty confident.”
