The Varsity Prep Blazers' run to the JWHL Challenge Cup championship ended today with a hard fought re-match with a strong Little Caesars team in the first semi-final of the day. In their attempt to make a final push to the title game, the Blazers fought hard in the first period and created many scoring opportunities but were unable to put the puck past the Caesar netminder. Little Caesars were able to strike first with just over two minutes remaining in the first period to take the lead. In the second period the Blazers pushed back but were unable to close the gap and would go into the third period down 3 - 0. The third period brought more inspired play by the Blazers but it was not to be on this day as they were unable to solve the Caesar goaltender.
The Blazers now look to rest up and prepare to host the JWHL from February 11 - 13, when they host the final JWHL East/West weekend with positioning up for grabs in the JWHL East and West conferences.
