BANTAM AA PROVINCIALS

March 15, 2015

 

The Brandon Bantam AA Wheat Kings defeated Pembina Valley 3-1 to earn the 2015 Manitoba Bantam AA Provincial Championship in St. Pierre Manitoba.

 

It was not a easy road for the Wheat Kings who had to go through always tough Central Plains Capitals not once but twice to get to the finals.

 

SEMI-FINAL: Wheat Kings finished in second place after the preliminary round and faced off against Central Plains (3rd) in a must win game.  After a shaky start the Capitals led 5-2 after the first period and it looked like we could be in for a disappointing game.  The Wheat Kings would not back down however and with some hard work got the game back to 5-4 going into the third period.  In the third period Central Plains got on the board first to make it 6-4, but it would not deflate Brandon.  The Wheat Kings took advantage of a 5 on 3 powerplay and scored 2 goals to tie the game at 6-6.  Brandon would then go ahead 7-6 on a timely goal by Colin Cook, followed by a empty net goal by Dylan Fontaine to make it 8-6.  Central Plains scored a late goal to make it 8-7 but that's as close as they would come.

 

FINALS: Brandon would then face-off against the 1st seeded Pembina Valley Twisters.  Wheat Kings led 1-0 after the first period. Pembina Valley would tie the game at 1-1 in the second, but Brandon would get a fantastic goal off the stick of Riley Compton to give the Wheaties a 2-1 lead going into the final frame.  In the third period the Wheat Kings would score 13 seconds in on a goal from Patrick Kondratiew and with stellar goaltending from Keagan Watkins-McIntyre would hold on for the win.

 

A storybook ending to a fantastic season.
