Team BC opened the U16 Western Challenge Cup in Calgary with a come from behind 7-3 win over Team Manitoba this afternoon.

BC head coach Jamie Fiset, started Jackson Van Deest and Jayden Lee on D, with Josh Williams, Massimo Rizzo and Eathan Leyh up front. Jesse Makaj started in nets.

Williams scored first early in the period on an assist from Rizzo, before Manitoba came back to tie it up, and then add two more to go up 3-1 around the midway point. BC’s Elan Bar-Lev-Wise brought it back to 3-2 with six minutes left, on a nice tip off an Jacson Alexander point shot.

In the second period, D-man Mitchell Brown would even it up at 3-3, on assists from Sasha Mutala and Henry Rybinski, and then put BC up 4-3 with his second goal (assists to Rybinski and Kolton Cousins), to close out the second, with the shots 28-15 for BC.

BC then poured in on it the third, Alex Swetlikoff scored first with helpers from Rybinski and Brown. Then it was Rizzo with a goal, assists to Josh Williams and Layton Ahac, to make it 6-3.

Sasha Mutala finished the scoring on a powerplay late in the period to wrap it at 7-3; Brown and Lee got the assists.

BC meet Team Saskatchewan tomorrow at 2:00 pm Pacific time, and wrap up the round robin with Alberta on Friday at 5:30 pm Pacific.
