Congratulations to the ’08 Wolves! Already this year, the ’08’s have surpassed last year’s game wins total. This past weekend in Leduc, the Wolves, led by Head Coach Chris Lizotte, won the Thrive Challenge Cup silver medal.
The Wolves went 2-1 in their pool, winning two games relatively easily until they met the Medicine Hat Heat in the final game of the preliminary round. They lost that game, but advanced to the semi-finals by finishing second in the pool.
In the semi-finals, the Wolves faced the number one seed from the other pool, the Jr. Riggers. The ’08’s cruised to a 6-3 victory and awaited the outcome of the other semi-final.
In the championship game, they faced the Medicine Hat squad one more time. It was close, and the Wolves played well, but they went down 5-3 to achieve the silver medal. All in all, this weekend had to be seen as a great success for the ’08’s and the Can West family. Great job Wolves!
