We’re wrapping up an exciting Saturday here at Sherwood Park. When the day is done, all teams will be seeded and playoffs will start bright and early tomorrow morning.
There’s only two teams in the Mite division, and the Sherwood Park Bullfrogs have won both the games so far, but the Red Deer Snipers came together in the second match. It should be a close game in the final. There is still one more game in the Squirt division and it looks like the Sherwood Park Bullfrogs will be on top with the Red Deer Snipers for the one, two seeds.
The older Snipers in the Pee Wee Division took the one seed, but right behind them are three teams that could easily walk away with Gold. The Canadian Wolves, Sherwood Park, and the Prince George Suits.
Our biggest division, the Bantams is the tightest of all. There are eight teams tied for each of the top seeds. The Moose Jawbreakers took the one seed, followed closely by the Red Deer 96 Jets, Edmonton Alkali Empire, and the BC Northern Kights.
Tomorrow should be filled with a lot of close games, high energy, and great hockey.
In addition to all the hard working volunteers working around the clock here, I would like to thank John Engelhardt, Allison Marriott from Hockey Alberta for all their hard work and dedication to the sport and this tournament.
