The go ahead and game winning goal came off the stick of Nicholas Kovacs with only 2 minutes to go in the 3rd period. In the final game of round robin play, DHA tied St. Albert 3-3 which was good enough to secure first place in their pool.
BV White went on to the semi finals and with a balanced attack and a huge team effort as they upended the competition, IHA, by a score of 8-1 to move on to the finals on Sunday afternoon.
It was a thrilling and tight match in the finals as the DHA came out with the huge 3-2 OT win against Okotoks. Quinn Messer netted the OT winner for BV White to capture the Edge School Fall Classic title.
“The boys played very hard all tournament showing our character in two come from behind wins, our resiliency in the finals, sticking with the game plan, outshooting the other team 41-14 and finally beating a very good goalie to win it”, said Head Coach Spencer Bennett.
Well done Wild!
