Midget Trackers' Dane Dietz breaks out of the zone with teammate Nick Kimmie close behind during a game last season at the Pomeroy Sport Centre.

The Northeast B.C./Yukon Bantam Trackers remain the top team in their division in the Northern Alberta Hockey League, improving their league record to 17-0 following road wins over the Peace River Sabres, 10-3, Friday night and a 5-0 shutout of the Provincial Rentals Storm from Grande Prairie Sunday afternoon.

Trackers forward Damon Clay scored five times in the Friday night win, while teammate Deacon Thomas added two of his own. Others came from affiliate player Brody Bustard, Joshua Fung, and Ethan Avanthay.

Mason McGinnis led the way Sunday with a pair of goals, while Easton Goulet, Griffin King, and Dylan Stanley closed out the scoring for the Trackers.

The U-15s are off until the new year.

The U-18s, meantime, had a tie and two wins over the weekend during a three-game road swing to the Edmonton-area.

On Friday, the Trackers and St. Albert Steel deadlocked at five.

Xavier Burgher scored twice, while Carver Lequiere, Nickolas Kimmie, and Braith Morgan added singles.

Taryn Hoskyn, Logan Thompson, Braith Morgan, and Carver Lequiere had the markers Saturday in a 4-1 decision over Fort Saskatchewan.

And, a one-sided affair Sunday in the city as the Trackers dropped the Maple Leaf Athletic Club 10-1.

Carver Lequiere, Xavier Burgher, Tristan Simpson and MacCoy Willms each had two, with singles coming from Braith Morgan and Brody Mickey,

The U-18s are first in the Milltech Group Division with 10 wins, two losses, and four ties.

They have one game remaining before the Christmas break - a special Friday morning match-up (11 a.m., North Peace Arena) against the Peace River Royals.

It's the team's annual food drive for the Salvation Army.

Students from Bert Bowes, Dr. Kearney, and North Peace Secondary are being invited to the game.
