There’s a new team at the top of the CSSHL Midget Prep division.
Although they played just one game this weekend, it was enough for the Edge to sneak past Shawnigan into first place overall, albeit on the basis of a superior goal differential.
Both teams are 8-1-0, for 17 points, but Edge are +30 vs Shawnigan’s +19.
Edge downed Northern Alberta 3-2 at River Cree Twin Rinks in Edmonton, in a game that saw all five goals scored in the second period.

BWC is posting the league’s best goals for record, with 57, and the best goal differential, with +33. The team is being lead offensively by Caeden Bankier (12G-6A-18) and Deepkaran Hans (9G-7A),
BWC downed cross town rival Delta 6-2 at home on Friday, and followed it up with a 4-3 decision over West Van on Sunday, also at home.
Tomas Milic stopped 40-42 in the Delta win.
In the game Sunday, BWC fired 45 shots on West Van’s Johnny Derrick. Jacob Paler-Chow scored a pair for BWC, who lead 2-0 after the first, and held on for the win after a scoreless second.
Delta picked up a single point in their second game of the weekend, 3-2 in a OT loss t0 Yale, at Planet Ice Delta. Jack Coutlhard, the team’s fifth shooter, won it for Yale. Shots finished 35-22 for Delta.
The two losses meant Delta slid two spots in the standings to sixth overall.
OHA Edmonton slid one spot into fourth, after dropping their Friday match 3-1 to NAX, and then winning the rematch Sunday 4-3 in OT.
