    The Mastel Transport Midget Raptors are on the home stretch of their season and hosted six team tournament.
    The Raptors invited Bow Island, Lomond, Fort Saskatchewan Strathmore and a Calgary team.
     “Our luck didn’t go our way, out of six teams we ended up in the C-final versus Fort Saskatchewan, and won it,” said coach Doug Hodge.
    League rivals Lomond and Bow Island ended up in the Championship game.
    “Bow Island won. That was a good game because they haven’t beat Lomond all year,” said Hodge.
    Coach Hodge said the team played well, but in their games, they found themselves playing from behind.
    “We would spot them four points within 10 minutes of the game and then we had to fight back,” he said. “We played hard and everything, but the other teams just played good too.”
    In league play, the Raptors have a 6-5 record, most recently topping Kneehill 5-3. They have just three games left before playoffs.
    In provincial playdowns, the Raptors faced Duchess in the first round but were beat out.
