The ’04 Can West Chargers had a tough go at the Thrive Tournament in Leduc this past weekend (April 14-16). Losing their 3 pool games meant one last consolation game to avoid 8th place on Saturday night.

The Chargers put together a solid 60 minute effort, and, combined with a line shake-up, skated to a 7-3 victory over the Jr. Eagles. The team was led by #97 Ashton Funk who scored 5 points. It was another fast paced and hard-hitting game, but the team stayed out of the penalty box (mostly) and were passing and skating with authority.

Over the weekend, there were numerous solid efforts by many different players. A skipped week of practices in week two due to the PeeWee Prospects Cup tryouts did not help the Chargers’ cause, but no excuses. Next weekend is a chance to work on deficiencies and iron out some tactics and skills. Go Chargers!
