The opening round of
the provincial hockey
playdowns has been
fairly devastating for
Athabasca teams.
Only two are left
alive and one of those –
the PeeWee ‘B’ Hawks
– had a bye and will
face Drayton Valley.
The other is the Bantam ‘B’ team coached
by Dustin Chisholm,
who lost the first of
their two game, total
goal series 6-1 in Drayton Valley Saturday.

played hard and simply
ran out of gas.

Atom ‘C’ clubs came
the closest to making it

while the Storm Hawks
lost their series by one
goal after an 8-3 win
Saturday at the Multiplex then losing 11-5
Sunday in Wabamun.
Storm Hawks head
coach Jason Zayezierski said the last five
minutes Sunday was
intense as the went
to tie the series, but
couldn’t bury any of
their chances.
Meanwhile, Sea
Hawks head coach
Brett Phillips said a

Both coaches though

On November 07, 2014 the ATHABASCA BLUE GENES FOUNDATION celebrated five years of supporting and bringing awareness to families with children with Down Syndrome.
The two Buddy Walks and the evening Celebration could not have been the huge and overwhelming success that it was without the support of our families, friends, local businesses, schools
and country music superstar Duane Steele. We have so many incredible, generous people and businesses to thank, so if we missed your name/business please know we appreciated
each and every person that became involved in our Foundation’s events. With the community’s support our Foundation is now able to bring in a bike riding program, a Buddy program and
speech therapy to meet the needs of our children. Also a parenting program for parents with children with special needs and a mother’s support group. Without the generosity of the following
people and businesses reaching our dreams and goals are become closer and real.
