For 2nd Year In Row
The Provost Bantam Hockey Club has won first place in provincial finals for the second consecutive year.
The playoffs were held at Bow Island over the weekend.
The Pahls Maintenance Bantam C hockey club, was coached by Fred Nelson who told The News on Monday that the winning team had a commitment to defense and had demonstrated a real good overall team effort.
In the second period of the final game he knew they were going to repeat as gold medal winners. It felt great Nelson recalls, as they were up six or seven goals to zero.
He didnt really think at the start of the year that they would win gold again but things worked out very well.
On Friday morning Provost defeated last years silver medalists, Smoky River 7-2 and then in the evening Provost beat the host Bow Island 7-1.
