The Sturgeon Midget AA Sting lost to Fort Saskatchewan in their home opener on Sunday night. The Sting trailed the Fort 4-1 after one, and 5-3 after two. The final frame saw both sides score a pair of goals, but it was too little too late for the Sting. Coach Greg Northcott felt the loss was down to a weak defensive effort by his team.

The Sting play the Sherwood Park Oilers at 3:45 p.m. at home on Saturday.

The Jets play the Hawks on the road on Friday and return home Sunday night to face the Beverly Warriors at 7:30 p.m.
