Day 3 at the Mac’s AAA Midget Tournament
The Prince Albert Northern Bears opened the scoring in the second period against Calgary Fire on the third Day of the Pool stage of the Mac’s Midget Tournament at Max Bell Arena. The local team came back with a goal two minutes before the interval, making it 1-1.
In the third period, it looked as though the Bears, from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, had taken the lead with a shot that went five-hole. But on review, the referees waived that one off. Some protracted discussion between players and officials ended with a penalty to the Bears. This triggered further discontent with several checking incidents from both sides, including a short bout of ice wrestling. Final score: 1-1.
