Tigers win over Bisons

It was a memorable game for the West Central Trilliant Tigers Midget AA team in a win of 7-2

It was a memorable game for the West Central Trilliant Tigers Midget AA team in a win of 7-2 against the Foothills Bisons Friday at the NexSource Centre.

Right from the first puck drop the Tigers showed fierce passion to win and gave their opponents no mercy, something assistant coachTrent Herbert is often heard saying to encourage the players during the game.

The Tigers definitely put the pressure on the Bisons and continued to do so all throughout the game.

It was obvious the Tigers would be very hard to beat as the Tigers scored the first two goals in the first period, leaving no room for theBisons to bite back.

In the second period the Tigers started to slow down a little only scoring one goal. This is when the Bisons scored their only two goals of the game.

At the end of the second period the score was again in the Tigers favour as they led 3-2, leaving the spectators wondering how the third period would pan out.

Needless to say the Tigers came back with more energy than ever and scored four more goals in the third period.

Tigers head coach Pat Garritty was thrilled on his team’s win and said it was the best 60 minutes the team had played in a long time.

“Right from the drop of the first puck we had great great pressure on all areas of the ice and for the first time in a long time our chances were good going in. It’s a great game for us,” Garritty said.

“We kind of took it over in the third period,” he added.

In the practices before hand the boys had worked on skills like lane driving, speeding through the neutral zone and defensive zone play.Their hard work at practice definitely showed.

Garritty noticed his players doing what they had practiced previous to the game.

“It’s nice that they are working on the things that we’re working on,” he said. “They are committed to the process, they are playing as a team and they are supporting each other.”

March is only weeks away and Garritty said they are getting ready for the playoffs. He said this game is a really big step towards the playoffs.

Player of the game Kolton Muyres scored the first goal of the third period. He was thrilled to be named player of the game.

“It means a lot because I helped the team out a lot today,” Muyres said. “Whomever gets it played a big part in the game.”

He commented on how the game went pretty good and how the team has been working on a few things that really came into play which he said definitely helped them out.

What Muyres was most proud of was how the team played together.

“We really came to play in the third (period) and that’s what we’re seeing on the (score) board,” he said. “The team has really come together in the past few months. We’re playing good and it’s all good.”
