After getting off to a great start in the Mac’s AAA Midget Tournament the dreams of a repeat for the Calgary Buffaloes has come to an end. The Buffs came into Wednesday’s game against the Prince Albert Mintos needing at least a point to stay alive. Unfortunately for the Buffs the Mintos didn’t even allow them to get a sniff. Right from the get go the Mintos carried the play, doubling the defending champs in shots and jumping out to a 1-0 lead after the first. The Buffs still had a chance going into the second period thanks mainly to the play of goaltender Bryton Udy. In the second the Buffs seemed to match the play of the Mintos but surrendered two more goals.

In the third period the Buffs became noticeably frustrated and took a lot of penalties, thus allowing the Mintos to score three more times and take the game 6-0. The loss now ends the Mac’s tournament for the Buffaloes this year, as they finished with a record of 1-2-1.

The Buffs will now take a short break away from the rink to recover from a long stretch of games in a short time. Head coach James Poole hopes the tournament will be a learning experience for his team on how to not let games slip away, and also to show his club what they need to do be an elite team.
