There’s a new team at the top of the CSSHL Midget Prep division, again this week.
Shawnigan swept their three game weekend at Kal Tire Place in Kelowna, to move to 11-1-1, and are now three points up on OHA Edmonton, who also had a strong weekend.
Shawnigan started with a 5-1 win over PoE on Friday, and followed it up with a 3-0 shutout over OHA Red on Saturday, and a 6-1 win vs OHA White on Sunday.
Joseph Tanaka-Campbell (01) at 7G-17A and Josh Van Unen (01) at 11G-12A are leading the team in points.
OHA Edmonton moved up two positions from a week ago, also on basis of three straight wins, at the Summit Centre in Abbotsford. OHA Edmonton are now 10-3-0.
They started with a 4-0 shutout of BWC on Friday, who were in third place last week and then handled Delta 7-3 on Saturday and Yale 6-4 on Sunday.
OHA Edmonton is being lead offensively by Bode Hagan (02) with 5G-21A, and three others Sean Tschigeri (03), 9G-14A, Tyson Laventure (03), 8G-15A, and Owen Peterson (02), 6G-14A.
Both Shawnigan and OHA Edmonton have played 13 regular season games.
Edge meanwhile slipped from first place last week to third, but only played one game during the week, a 4-1 home victory vs IHA last Wednesday, October 24. They have two games in hand on both of the leaders.
Cale Sanders (02) is the top offensive player for Edge at the moment, with 11G-7A, 18 points in 11 GP.
NAX improved their place by one, on the basis of two wins and a loss, in a tough weekend at Abbotsford.
NAX handled Delta 7-1 in their opener on Friday, and then overcame Yale 5-4 in a shoot-out on Saturday. On Sunday, they lost 4-3 in a shootout to BWC.
As a result, NAX is now tied with BWC with 18 points, one back of Edge in fourth place overall.
Two young snipers are leading NAX offensively, both with 25 points – Dylan Guenther (03) has put up 15G-10A, while Matthew Savoie (04) has 11G-14A.
BWC rounds out the Top 5 – after going 1-1-1 in a challenging weekend at Abbotsford. Last week they were in third place, two points behind Edge and Shawnigan who were tied for first place.
BWC started with the 4-0 shut out loss to OHA Edmonton, then lost 6-5 in OT to Rink on Saturday, before finishing with the 4-3 SO win vs NAX on Sunday.
Caedan Bandier (03) leads the BWC offense, with 13G-7A. Deepkaran Hans (02) and Finlay Williams (03) are next with 16 points each.
Again there was no change at the top of the scoring leaderboard after the weekend, with the Pacific Coast 2001-born trio of Sean Ramsay (24G-30A-54 in 16 GP), Kyle Brown (20G-25A-45 in 17 GP) and Gabe Schovanek (13G-26A-39 in 17 GP) again increasing their lead over the rest of the league.
Ramsay had an eleven point weekend, on two games played, including ten points in the first game, while Brown also added eleven and Schovaneck added six over three games.
The Sea Devils went 1W-2L at Kal Tire Place, blasting OHA White 10-2 on Friday, then losing 4-1 to Pursuit on Saturday, and 6-5 to OHA Red on Sunday.
In the 10-2 game, OHA White outshot Pacific Coast 41-38, but gave up five goals on 13 shots in the first period. Ramsay scored six goals and added four assists in the game. Brown was 2G-4A and Schovanek was 1G-1A.
Ramsay got the lone Pacific Coast goal in the 4-1 loss to Pursuit on Saturday.
In game three, OHA Red fired 58 shots at Max Prazma, and scored with 8:31 left to break the third tie in the game. Brown was 2G-3A in the game, while Schovanek was 1G-3A. Ramsey did not play in the game. PCHA fired 31 shots at Kaleb McEachern.
Rounding out the Top 5, Jake Chiasson of Yale and John Evans of Delta swapped spots in the #4 and #5 spots from last week. Chiasson is now 11G-16A, for 27 points and Evans is 9G-17A, for 26 points.
