Taber Oil Kings teams saw plenty of Central Alberta Hockey League games over the past weekend as they continue jockeying for position before the end of the regular season.

There were two games this weekend for the U11 Oil Kings as they welcomed in Pincher Creek and Nanton.

Saturday saw Pincher Creek come to Taber where the Oil Kings greeted them with an 8-2 shellacking. Ryden Baker had a hat trick while Lincoln Braun, Cage Holcek, and Paxton Foote all had a goal and an assist. Luke Engwer and Tyrion Ewing had a goal each, and Hudson Ilcyznski and Holden Capner had an assist each. Dylan Volk was stellar and made 45 saves on 47 shots in the Taber net.

Sunday saw Nanton in Taber for a 10:30 a.m. game. Thanks to big first and second periods, Taber was able to double up Nanton 4-2. Braun had a hat trick, Luca Nielsen had two assists, Engwer had the other goal, and Holcek, Foote, and Mason Woordman all had an assist. Volk was stellar yet again, making 51 saves on 53 shots in net.
