Top Guns Tournament, Canmore AB – Day 2

Live Updates: Day 2 of the Top Gun AAA Spring tournament begins this morning; this will be exciting!

I am in watching the 2002 Minor Bantam competition this weekend & I have had the opportunity to watch some great hockey played by the up and coming stars.

What a way to start a morning!

9:00am

Yellowknife (yesterday I called the team Yukon…my mistake) Sporting Club is on the ice against the Spring Dogs. 2:0 at the end of the second period.

Final score 5:1 for Yellowknife Sporting Club. A chippy game to watch in the morning! Lot’s of beaking and some great plays by both teams. The Spring Dogs played a good hard game against a much larger team, the tempo of the game just favored Yellowknife this morning.

10:00am

Next up Jr. Oil Kings vrs. Sask-Can

2:0 for Sask-Can at the end of the first.

11:30am

What a change of pace for the Oil Kings, they are up 6:2 at the end of the second.

There was a bit of drama however as the Jr. Oil coach seemed to lose his temper on the bench with some of the questionable calls by the Ref’s; then naturally the parents of the Sask-Can players responded from the stands.

Not the best example for the players…

The Ref’s to their credit are keeping control.

11:33am

Scratch that, two players just ejected for fighting.

Final score 8:2 for the Jr. Oil Kings.

5:00pm

A couple of good games in between my nap and sightseeing….

First off the Spring Dogs defeated the Jr. Golden Bears 5:3, and Yellowknife beat Sask-Can 2:0.

I caught the tail end of the last game, some fast hockey even after these boys played a game each earlier in the day.

Well played lads, let’s see hiw this next game pans out (Jr. Golden Bears & Jr. Oil Kings) to see where the stats lay for the finals tomorrow!

Final score 2:2 tie; both teams off to the finals tomorrow!
