Varsity Prep team wins Eastman Showcase

By Balmoral, 10/24/10, 8:14PM EDT


On Sunday afternoon, the Blazers Varsity Prep team wrapped up a spectacular weekend of hockey, going undefeated, by defeating the Minnesota Crunch 3 - 2 to win the Eastman Showcase. In a very physical Gold medal game, the Blazers were able to jump out to a 2 - 0 lead before the first period was out and would close out the second period with a 2 - 1 lead going into the third. The Crunch would tie it up on a power play goal with just under ten minutes to go, however, the Blazers would not be denied, reclaiming the lead just under a minute later. The Blazers would hold on to the lead with some strong defensive play to secure the win and the Eastman Showcase Championship.

The Blazers look to carry their strong play into Calgary, when they make the trip West to take on their Western division JWHL counterparts in a four game set!
