Midget Storm A1 – team to beat in Flight 1
The Storm A1 have proven to be the team to beat in the midget division, as they are holding down a three point lead atop Flight 1.
After suffering their first and only loss last week, the team bounced back with a 3-3 tie against Seafair (4-2-2). That game marked the only time this season the Storm A1 have allowed more than two goals.
The most recent game was against last-placed Langley (1-6-1), and the Storm A1 took advantage and picked up their fourth shutout of the season in a 3-0 win.
The Storm A1 are tied for fourth in goals for, but the real story has been on the defensive side of things. The team has allowed just ten goals in nine games. Their G.A.G (goals against per game) is 1.11, miles ahead of the second-best team (Richmond – 2.00).
The Storm A1 are firing on all cylinders and if this play continues it’s a safe bet that the team will remain among the best midget teams.
The Storm A1 are in action on both days this weekend, taking on NSWC (3-4-1) on Saturday before meeting Ridge Meadows (3-5-0) on Sunday.

Midget Storm A2
The Storm A2 had three games this past week in Flight 4, moving up to eight games played on the season. Through those eight games, the team has a record of 1-4-3.
The week started off with a 2-2 tie against Ridge Meadows (3-4-2) before back-to-back games against Vancouver (2-6-2). Vancouver wasn’t the best match-up for the Storm A2, as they lost both games.

Both meetings against Burnaby have now resulted in a 5-2 win for the Storm A3. The other win for the team this year was a 4-3 win over Seattle on Nov. 22nd.
The Storm A3 hold a record of 3-6-1 in Flight 4, sitting in 5th of ten teams in the flight.
The next order of business for the Storm A3 is Abbotsford (3-6-1) on Tuesday. The last meeting between the two teams ended in a 3-3 tie.
Here’s the first ten games of the season for the Storm A3.
