CSSHL E15 Update:
The league leading BWC Elite 15’s played just one game last weekend, a Saturday game against their rivals in Delta, currently #3 overall at 15-5-2, and came away with a 4-3 shootout win.
Davis Sato scored the only goal in the shootout to win it for BWC, and he also scored the first goal of the game.
Delta tied it up after Sato’s opening goal and then Chase Sandhu scored late in the first to give BWC a 2-1 lead at the end of one.
Delta turned the tables with a pair of goals in the second period to go up 3-2.
It looked as though that would hold up as the final score, until Michael Abgrall scored a shorthanded goal with only 32 seconds left to push the game into overtime.
Abgrall also had an assist in the game on the Sandhu goal.
Mason Dunsford stopped 25 of the 28 shots he faced, including four in overtime, and stopped all four shooters in the shootout to secure the win for BWC.
It was a huge win for BWC as Delta had handed BWC their only regular season loss of the year (a 4-3 decision on November 10). Since then, BWC have won seven in a row.
With the win, BWC moves to 20-1-1 this season.
With 41 points, they’re six points up the 2nd-seed Northern Alberta (17-4-1), while Delta has fallen nine points behind BWC after losing to Yale (8-8-1) on Sunday.
BWC’s only other blemish so far this year, was a 4-3 OTL to OHA Edmonton on October 14.
