Cariboo Cougars claim spot in semis @MacsTournament with 5-1 win over German U17 Nationals

It was quite the tight period, the first one at Father David Bauer Arena, Calgary. The BC- based Cariboo Cougars opened up the scoring before #22 Christoph Kiefersauer pulled one back for the Germany U17 Nationals. It would be the squad’s last goal in the Mac’s Midget AAA World Invitational Tournament this year.

The Cougars came out strong straight from the start of the second period, scoring twice in quick succession, then another one. That was enough for starter goalie #29 Mirko Pantkowski who was replaced by #1 Jonas Steinmann. Meanwhile, Cougars goalie Griffen Outhouse was outstanding, keeping the door firmly shut for the remainder of the game.
