Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Terriers
After dropping the opening game of the tournament, the Eagles have won their last two in a row over Steinbach and Nanaimo. The Birds blanked the Clippers 4-0 on Tuesday evening, thanks in large part to the contributions of Drew Best and Michael Santaguida. Best had three points in the win and is now tied for the lead in tournament scoring with three goals and two assists while Santaguida stopped all 31 shots he faced in a good bounce-back effort.
The Terriers are also 2-1 on the tournament. Yorkton opened with a 4-3 come-from-behind win over Nanaimo before edging Steinbach 3-2. The only loss for the Saskatchewan club came at the hands of the Brooks Bandits by a score of 2-1 in overtime. Forward Tyler Giebel is also tied for the tournament points lead as he's posted one goal and four assists for the Terriers. The Norrish brothers -- Brady and Chase -- have also been key to Yorkton's success on the back end.
