Cardinals 7 ~ Bourkevale 0

Cardinals 4 ~ SJR 0

On February 14th our Cardinals met SJR for the second last regular season game.  Thanks to great back checking and outstanding goal tending SJR was denied even one goal.  Final score was Cardinals 04 vs. SJR 00.

February 15th our Cardinals met Bourkevale for a final time during regular season play.  Once again, thanks to awesome goaltending and a fabulous team effort highlighted by amazing passing and great defense another shut out was secured.  Final score Cardinals 07 vs. Bourkevale 00.

Stay tuned for updates on playoff times and practices.

Cardinals Wrap Up Warroad Tournament on a High Note!

Our Cardinals gave it their all at the weekend tournament in Warroad.  With a number of players down with illness our team struggled Friday and Saturday, but remained focused and played 3 awesome games of hockey.  The final game for our Cardinals on Sunday ended on a very positive note with us winning 9 to 2 against Arbourg. 

The team had fun during free time, in the pool and during the team meetings and team building meetings. 

The parents had fun by the pool and into the wee hours talking and hanging out.  Dinner at The Brick on Saturday night was a great time for all. 

Thanks for a fun weekend!


Cardinals take 1st Place (Pool D)
in the Christmas Challenge!

Cardinals 3 ~ Dakota 2

Dakota was up 2 nothing against our squad but an incredible show of defensive power and strong offense put the puck between the pipes twice to send the game into overtime!

The first overtime period saw pucks hitting the cross bar and posts but we weren't able to plug one in.   Griffin in goal stood on his head stopping a number of shots from denting our net. Finally in the 3rd overtime with only Brett and Griffin on the ice,  Brett dug the puck out from behind Griffin, used the boards to bounce the puck past the lone opponent.  Using his trademark speed he broke away and secured the  1st place with a precise shot beating the net minder!


Oh!  What a Game!!

Cardinals 4 ~ Fort Garry Red 3

Our Cardinals were in fine form this evening in their 2nd meeting with Fort Garry Red in the Christmas Challenge Tournament.  At the end of the game they were tied at 3.  Overtime was played 3 on 3 with Brett, Ben & Stephen up against 3 Reds.  Our boys were exhausted by the time the 1st overtime period wrapped up.   Jeremy and Caleb were next up to face the opponents.  A trip by one of Reds resulted in Jeremy facing their goalie in a shoot out.  Cool as a cucumber (or as it appeared to us in the stands) Jeremy sauntered up and popped in the puck to win the game!  The crowd and the team went ballistic!


Cardinals take King's crown for a second time!

Cardinals 5 ~ Richmond Kings 2

Our second meeting with the Richmond Kings was very physical and at times frustrating for our team. Despite both teams racking up lots of penalty minutes and a hit from behind resulting in one King's ejection from the game, our Cardinals kept up the hard work with back checking and fore checking.  Our goalie stood on his head at times, allowing in only 2.    From a mother's fan's perspective, this was an awesome game to watch!

Congratulations on another well deserved win!


Cardinals Cruz to Another Win!

Cardinals 6 ~~ Richmond Kings 3

Strong passing and exceptional positional play allowed our Cardinals to dent the net 6 times!  Our goalies were in fine form between the pipes only allowing 3 to slip in.  Thanks to a stepped up defense and a strong offense our team was on top of their game. 

Keep up the Great Work Team


Cardinals win over FG Black!

Cardinals 5 ~~ FG Black 1

Despite a very physical game and the late hour, our Cardinals remained in control again.  Thanks to awesome goal tending and defense support only 1 goal slipped in. 

Another great team effort!


Cardinals fly over Bruins!

Cardinals 6 ~ ~ Bruins 1

At Saturday's game we saw our team take flight!  Despite the late hour, the Cardinals displayed awesome teamwork, beautiful passing and ultimately a much anticipated win. 
Way to go team!  

Next GameSunday, Nov 23rd 8:30 pm vs. Fort Garry at Sam Southern Arena.
