Western Region Captures 2nd Consecutive Challenge Cup
Playing in the comfort of their Home Region, the Western AAA All Star team embarked on a pursuit of their 2nd consecutive Challenge Cup title over the weekend. A tough first day schedule saw them line up against Southern and Eastern Regions. Some solid goaltending and explosive offense paced them to an 8-1 win over Southern Region in the opener. The nightcap pitted them against always tough Eastern Region. A back and forth battle ended in a 4-2 win for Western and a 2-0 start to the tournament after day 1.

Day 2 opened with a matchup against the vastly improved Northeast team. Offense was at the forefront as Western Region skated to a 10-5 decision. The evening's game was a rematch with their opponents from the 1st Challenge Cup final, Central Region. Western spotted Central a 5-1 lead before rallying for a thrilling 8-6 win.

The final day of competition kicked off with the completion of Round Robin playing vs United. Never ones to take the easy way out, Western again saw themselves down by a large margin of 6-1 after the 1st period. Never deterred, Western stormed back to tie the game 6-6 before netting the winner with 1:40 left. Final, 7-6 for Western. This set the table for a rematch with Eastern in the final. Western never trailed in the final and skated off with a 5-2 win and their 2nd consecutive Challenge Cup title.

Congratulations to the players for their skill, tenacity and unwillingness to quit. To the coaching staff for their extra-ordinary preparation and leadership exemplified. Finally, to the off ice volunteers who helped nourish and care for the athletes.

Preparations are under way for the 3rd and final Challenge Cup at the end of January in Kingston. The athletes and coaches are preparing in earnest for this year's Winter Games.
