Team Canada West takes Silver, Van Isle Ford Midget Bulldogs in Finals today

Tough loss for Team Canada West as they fell 6-3 to the USA in the Gold Medal Game at the World Junior "A" Challenge. I didn't get to see all of the game as I was out and about with my little guy, but I did get the start of the game at Boston Pizza, and later on the beginning of the second as Canada scored three straight to lead 3-2 before the US squad tied it up and eventually went ahead.

Evan Tironese from what I saw played very well and had numerous chances to score. I didn't get to watch the game as close as I wanted, but it seemed that goals were too easy to come by for Team USA.

Congrats on the Silver medal - it's not the colour we are inclined to expect or accept in this sport in this country, but it's a great accomplishment!

The Van Isle Ford Midget Rep Bulldogs have a chance to win their own tournament today as they take on Aldergrove at 11:45 in the big rink...GO BULLDOGS!

They topped Victoria 5-1 in the semis to advance while Aldergrove beat Port Coquitlam 6-4 in the other semi.

The bronze medal game gets going at 11:30 on the Couslson side.

Check out the results from the tournament website HERE, better yet get to the rink to cheer the teams on!
