There will now be a series of practices for the rest of the afternoon and evening. Action will resume tomorrow morning and throughout the day with each team playing twice.
Team Flyers 2 - Teams Stars 1 SO
Tristan Simm started the scoring after a scoreless first period with an early 2nd period marker. Simm played this past season with the Semiahmoo Ravens. Simm currently isn't ranked by us on our draft list. Then late in the game, Chris Seto scored to tie it up. Seto is expected to be a late first rounder on draft day. He played this past season with the powerhouse Cloverdale Colts who looked like they would roll to the westerns, having won 32 in a row until BWC beat them in the provincial final game. Seto has one of the hardest, most accurate shots in the draft and will be a solid WHL'er in the future.
Team Avalanche 4 - Team Sabres 3
-Bazien scores twice
After a scoreless first period, Team Avalanche went up 1-0 on a Johnny Wesley goal. Wesley played this season in Semiahmoo on what was a very good team that featured other top forwards such as Plotnikoff, Bradley and Craighead to name a few. We expect Wesley to be a draft pick in the 4-6 round range. Then shortly after, Team Sabres got a marker from hard working, small forward Addison Bazien. Bazien played this year with the Kamloops Jardine Blazers. Bazien had a pretty successful season and could go around where Wesley will go in the draft. Then the Sabres would regain the lead on a Brodie Smith marker late in the period. Smith played this season on the Victoria Raquet Club and isn't currently ranked in our top 225. A good BC Cup could change that, as is the case for all players.
In the 3rd period, big Jesse Roach scored to even things up. Roach is an underrated player for the draft, in large part of the league he played in. He is a player to watch at the BC Cup. Then Colin Bell from Terrace, BC scored to give the Avalanche a 3-2 lead. Bell is another player who played in a low profile league in Bantam Tier 3 in the Skeena Valley AHA. Bell led his league leading Terrace squad with 64-63-127 in 46 games this season. They won the league title but lost to Jesse Roach's Quesnel team in the provincial final 6-5. Then it was Addison Bazien scoring his 2nd of the game late to make it close and end the game at a 4-3 final for the Avs.
