CSSHL Midget Prep – BWC lock #1 – Rink, OHA R pressing #2 Delta

in regular season

 

February 12, 2018

Here’s a quick overview of how things stand in the CSSHL Midget Prep division, after a busy weekend of regular season play. Plus a look at the final game schedules for the leaders down the stretch run.

#1 BWC (32 games) did not play this weekend, however, the team has already locked up first place, with its 30-1-1 OTL record, 61 points.

 

#2 Delta (32 games)  lost a two game series vs OHA Red in Penticton this weekend, losing 4-2 and 2-1, and so failed to gain any ground on BWC.

In game 1, OHA scored all four goals on the powerplay, including the final two in the third period. Delta outshot OHA 39-32; Delta took 14 penalties vs 7 for OHA Red. George Cathers lead OHA with 3A.

In game 2, OHA outshot Delta 38-30. Both teams scored a goal in the first, both on power plays. OHA’s Brendan Kim got the winner, another powerplay goal, with 2:58 left in the second.

 

#3 OHA Red (32 games) moved to within 2 points of Delta in the standings on the four point performance. They are single point up on #3 Yale, and #4 Northern Alberta, and three up on #6 Rink Academy.

 

#4 Yale (32 games) also gained four points on the weekend with two wins at River Cree in Edmonton. On Friday, they downed NAX 6-3 and on Saturday, they defeated Rink 5.3.

In game 1, Yale outshot NAX 38-34, and after a 2-2 tie at the end of the first, closed out the game with a three goal performance in the second, and an empty netter with 2:16 left.

League leading sniper Holden Kodak lead the attack with 2G-1A, Roc Truman was 2G, and Scout Truman, 1G-1A. Campbell Arnold got the win, and Braden Potter took the loss.

In game 2 vs Rink, Yale were outshot 37-17, and after 1-1 first period and 3-3 second period ties, clinched the game with two unanswered goals in the third. Yale were 2 for 5 on the power play, while Rink were 0 for 4. Yale were lead offensivlely by Kodak and Bryce Anderson, who were both 1G-2A. Yale’s Campbell Arnold stopped 34 of 37 for the win.

 

#5 Northern Alberta Xtreme – 35 games

NAX started their weekend last Thursday with a 6-4 win over #12 Pursuit, before losing to Yale in the 6-3 game on Friday. NAX then downed #7 Shawnigan 4-3 in OT on Saturday, and #12 Pursuit 5-1 on Sunday; for a six point weekend.

Although tied with Yale at 48 points, NAX have played three more games, and have three more losses on their record.

In their game vs Shawnigan, NAX were outshot 46-30, and scored a powerplay goal with 8:32 left in the third to force the OT. League #2 sniper, Connor McClennon got the OT winner, plus 3A. #3 Kyle Crnkovic was 3G-1A, Luke Prokop was 3A.

Their six point weekend, edged them one spot up in the standings, past Rink, by two points, however NAX has played five more games – and have four more losses, and only one game remaining. Best finish would be 50 points.

 

#6 Rink Academy – 30 games

Rink played three games at home on the weekend, and came away with four points. They opened with an 8-1 win over Pursuit, and closed with a 9-1 win over West Van, after losing the Yale game, 5-3.

Rink will play #11 IHA in a three game series at home this coming weekend, so could gain six points, and move up in the standings, possibly even into second place. They’ll finish with a three game series vs #16 Banff, so conceivably could finish with 58 points, good enough for second or third place.

Other Stretch Runs

BWC will finish with two games vs OHA White this coming weekend, and then meet West for a single game Feb. 24, before wrapping with a single game at home vs Yale on March 4. If they run the table, BWC would finish with 69 points.

If Delta sweeps their final four games (West Van and Shawnigan 2 game series), they would be at 59 points.

OHA Red play Shawnigan Lake at home and Pacific Coast on the road in two game series and could move to 57 points.

Yale, who play Coeur d’Alene twice, and finish with the single game vs BWC; could move to 54 points (according to the CSSHL website schedule, Yale only play 35 games).
