Not a single Edge Maroon player, including Adam Courchesne (12/15, 2A) in goal, left the ice without a point.

St. George’s School (7) vs STAR Hockey Academy (0) U15

Between Daniel Makovetskiy’s (4G, 1A) offensive brilliance and Erik Sims (28/28) lock down goaltending, STAR couldn’t have asked for a better showing versus St. George’s on Sunday. Makovetskiy got the ball rolling, scoring the opening frame’s lone goal, while Kyler Bush and Brody Lukinbill (1G, 1A) added another two in the second. Ronin Brunner (1G, 1A) would put another on the board in the third before Makovetskiy added another three unanswered goals for STAR for a 4-goal performance. Sims turned aside 28-shots and helped fend off four St. George’s powerplays for his second shutout of the year. STAR never even received a single powerplay in this matchup, scoring all seven goals at even strength. 

NWCAA Flames AAA (3) vs Edge School (8) U15 Prep

Only one skater left the ice without a point in Edge’s commanding win over their city rivals, beating them by a five-goal margin when everything was set and done. After a scoreless first, Edge recorded four unanswered through the first half of the second period, scoring twice on the powerplay. Jordin St. Louis (1G, 1A) managed to eclipse the double-digit mark for goals while Mirco Dufour hit the 20-mark. The Flames would claw back another three, which would’ve made for a close game if Edge hadn’t gone and scored another four goals in this time frame, wrapping up their weekend in style.

Pacific Coast Hockey Academy White (3) vs North Shore Warriors Orange (4/OT) U17 Prep

Robert Orr (1G, 1A) got the game started for NSW Orange just over two minutes in, but a quick pair of goals from Addison Urquhart (2G) put PCHA White ahead by one after the first frame. NSW Orange threw 21-shots on net in the second, but only managed to score late in the period thanks to the extended efforts of Christopher Mah (1G, 1A) and Kayden Runstedler (2G, 1A). Entering the third, NSW Orange found themselves in penalty trouble which led to PCHA White’s tying goal off the stick of Aleks Ostrovskyy. In overtime, NSW Orange pressed hard, outshooting PCHA White 6-1 in the short time before Runstedler nabbed the winner.

Okanagan Hockey Academy Black (0) vs Delta Hockey Academy Black (4) Female U18 Prep

OHA Black’s struggles continue as they fell to Delta Black on Sunday afternoon. Even after outshooting Delta Black in the first, they couldn’t come out on top as Gabriella Lee (2G, 1A) managed to snag a pair of goals in the frame. Delta Black would remain in control for the rest of the match, outshooting their opponents 21-14 in the final forty minutes while picking up another two goals in the process, both off the stick of Abby Hamel (2G). Sonja Reed (27/27) picked up the win in goal, recording the first shutout of her CSSHL career.

OHA Edmonton (11) vs Prairie Hockey Academy (1) U15 Prep

OHA Edmonton had their offence spread out in their victory over PHA. Cash Brebant (3G, 1A) led the charge with a hat-trick performance while Miles Hartmann (2G, 1A) chipped in two goals, including the game winner. Aaron Kowalyk scored the lone goal for PHA to make the score 3-1 in the first, but OHA Edmonton’s offence was too much to contain going the rest of the way.

Coeur d’Alene Hockey Academy (1) vs Yale Hockey Academy (4) U17 Prep

Jayden Oleskiw (4A) recorded an assist on each and every one of Yale’s goals Sunday afternoon. Yale got the ball rolling early with a quick pair that Coeur d’Alene simply couldn’t get back. Elijah Plunkett would put CDA on the board late in the first, but that was the only lick of twine his academy would find. Devan Bahia (1G, 1A) and Gus Schill (1G, 2A) would score two more for Yale throughout this contest while Carson Lang (22/23) stopped everything he needed to in the final forty to rack up the win.

Northern Alberta Xtreme (6) vs Calgary International Hockey Academy (4) U18 Prep

Jack Bousquet may have put CIHA on the board first, but NAX was able to keep their eye on the prize and recorded a quick pair soon after Bousqet’s opener. NAX would leave the first frame up a score of 4-2. In the second, Ryan Gower would score his second of the season to put NAX up by three. This would go on to be the game winner as CIHA made a strong push in the third, scoring twice in the final half of the frame. However, Parker Snell (26/30) would hold them at bay as they pulled their goalie, while Riley Boychuk (2G, 1A) sealed the game with the empty netter. 

Edge School (1) vs Northern Alberta Xtreme (4) U15

Kaidyn Thomas (57/61) may have recorded the loss on the scoresheet, but he managed to give Edge a fighting chance in this contest, making a ridiculous 57-saves on NAX’s fiery offence. Only NAX’s first line was able to penetrate anything through Thomas, Easton Arndt (3G) ended up with a hat-trick and Admad Fayad (1G, 1A) scored the other lone goal. Damien Lavallee managed to beat Tyson Moreland (24/25) late in the third, but this would only go on to spoil his shutout as it was too little too late to make an impact on the final score.

BWC Academy (7) vs Yale Hockey Academy (9) U15

Thanks to a strong second period, Yale was able to hold on to the lead thoroughly in this back and forth affair. BWC Academy and Yale’s offence went wild in the final frame as a total of eight goals were scored in those final twenty minutes. Yale’s Jaxen McFegan (3G, 2A) would go on to score four goals in this contest but it would end up being Kessler Hauser’s goal with two minutes remaining that would go on to be the game winner in Sunday’s final.
