 The Calgary AAA Midget Buffaloes showed plenty of signs that they’re on the right path Saturday night. The Buffs welcomed the Alberta Midget Hockey League’s best team, the Tanroc Bobcats who play out of Lloydminster, to town. The Bobcats came into the game sporting an undefeated 9-0-3 record, but saw themselves behind 2-0 at the halfway point of the game. The Buffs looked as if they were going to be the first team to hand the Bobcats a loss, but couldn’t hang on to the lead, surrendering three straight goals.  The Buffs tied the game at three but ultimately fell by a final count of 5-3.

Forward Konrad Litke led the way offensively for the Buffaloes notching a goal and two assists.

Head coach James Poole says there were plenty of positives to take from the game and he believes that this game shows that there is no team in the league that his team can’t beat.  Poole added that his team had their chances to win, but failed to capitalize on some great chances.

Special teams also played a huge factor in the game as the Buffs found themselves shorthanded nine times. Poole said that being shorthanded so many times really takes the flow out of the game, but his team needs to work on their special teams play and take advantage of chances that present themselves. 

The Buffaloes will now turn their attention to another cross town battle as they play the Northstars Wednesday night at the Max Bell Arena.
