The Sask Valley Minor Hockey League Pee Wee finals came down to the final two minutes of the final game to crown a champion.
The Cudworth Stars and the Waldheim Outlaws faced off in game three of the best of three championship series on Tuesday, March 12th. The compete level was high and the stakes were higher. However, the goalscoring was low and with two minutes remaining, the Outlaws provided the game's only goal to skate away with a 1-0 victory and a SVMHL Pee Wee Championship.
"It was a hard fought game. We came out of the gates fast and kept them to two periods tied at zero. Going into the third we knew we were getting a little tired. With two minutes left in the game, Waldheim scored and we ran out of steam at the end. When you're standing around the dressing room and you can see their tounges hanging out and the sweat coming down their face, you know they played hard and gave it all they got, and that's all that matters," said Cudworth Stars Coach, Riley Brockman.
Waldheim suffered only one loss all season, so Brockman knew his team battled hard right to the very end and thanked everyone else involved with the team.
"Just a big thank you to Scott and Rob Palchinski, the manager Leah Palchinski, and finally, hats off to all our players, it was a great season for the Cudworth Stars."
