Day 3 at the Mac’s AAA Midget Tournament

The Red Deer Optimist Chiefs looked to be in an unsalable position going up 3-0 after 40 minutes of play at Max Bell Arena. But the Vancouver team, probably reminded of the plague of goals that the Belarus National U17 team hit them with on Day 1, was not capitulating. Nine minutes into the final period they got one back, then two back less than a minute later. The Giants rattled the Red Deer cage with some swift attacks but with a minute to go the Alberta team sealed things up, final score 4-2.
