The Alberta Junior Pandas and Calgary Team Stix faced one another for the second time in the semi-final of the Canada Cup West in Kelowna, BC, Canada. (see this link for the first match report)
Bigger, faster, stronger
It was a game that felt different to the first outing. Bigger; faster, stronger as the Daft Punks might say. Yet the game was more blown out on the scoreboard which was showing 6-0 at the end of sixty minutes play.
It was a game dominated by strong neutral zone control by the Pandas which prevented most of the Stix launches from getting deep into the Alberta provincial side’s home space.
It was a game with many learnings to reflect on for the Stix AA side. Great determination through to the end where they had to kill off a five on three for a couple of infringements.
Good luck Pandas in your final game. Safe trip home Stix. Hoping to see you at the Canada Cup West next year.
