Braedyn Boyer was awarded team MVP and Bryce Anderson was awarded Star of the Game.

It was another great third game for the Giants in Montana. They played the Chestermere Lakers — a team considered to be a much higher calibre.

At the end of the first period the score was 2-1 in Chestermere’s favor. After two periods the it was 3-1, again in Chestermere’s favor. The Giants scored a quick one at the start of the third period making the score 3-2.

With 2:13 left in the third period there was a huge goal by Giants’ Carter Gretchen tying the game up. Eleven seconds later another huge goal by Tijs Vreys — his third of the game — putting the team ahead by one.

With one minute remaining, the Giants were awarded a penalty and would play the remainder with one man down.

The Giants held Chestermere off and the Giants Won 4-3. With this third win the Giants were now going to have the opportunity to play in the Championship Game.

In the Championship Game, the Castlegar Giants worked hard but were no match for the rep team the Cranbrook Kings.

Carter Gretchen was awarded team MVP for his strong efforts playing defense in the game. The players, coaches and parents are very proud of finishing second in a tournament which hosted many high level hockey teams.
