The Bantam Sylvan Lake West Central Trilliant Tigers managed to sneak out a victory over the Foothills Bisons over the weekend.

The game was a defensive slog to begin with both teams trying not to blink first. The end of the first period would see no progress made as both teams would go into the second period tied 0-0. The game would become dicey after that as member of the Bisons would set up his team mate Brogan Booth for the first goal of the game.

The Tigers would spend the next 10 minutes of the game trying to find the equalizer before Tigers, Ashlain Dufresne and Bret Gerrits would find Zachery Burns to tie the game 1-1 at the end of the second period.

With a renewed sense of optimism, the Tigers would see Burns would notch his second goal of the game with an assist from Easton Springinatic bringing the score to 2-1 Tigers. This would prove to be the all they would need, however Myles Hilman of the Tigers would cash in the insurance goal from with an assist from Bryn Hoiland bringing the game to a 3-1 conclusion.

The game was a particularly special evening as the Tigers would host their annual Teddy Bear Toss during the first intermission.

Team manager Ginger Christian was happy to see all the support from the fans and the players for the charity.

“We had a very successful Teddy Bear Toss,” she said. “We took in 102 bears and almost $500 in gift cards and cash.”

She added the Foothills Bisons also helped with cleaning up the ice after the toss.

The two teams would pose for a great photo together following the cleanup.

All the bears and gifts will be hand delivered by the Tigers to local charities in seven local communities on behalf of those that donated to the cause.

Christian encouraged everyone to continue to support local shelters and charities throughout the holidays as they “always need stuff” this time of year.
