Blades Are Provincial Champs
‘Willpower won it’
The Provost Blades emerged champions of the AA Alberta Senior hockey finals by beating the Spirit River Rangers in a close final game on Sunday afternoon, April 3.

The Blades were in the tournament as hosts—winning all three of its games in the 2011 Investors Group Hockey finals.

Winning first place in the A side was the Dewberry Mustangs who beat out Innisfail in the final game in that competition before the Blades played in the final game of the three day tournament.

On Friday, April 1 the first game was at 11 a.m. when Innisfail and Daysland squared off. Daysland emerged winners 4-1.

Game two was Slave Lake (a wildcard entry) and Spirit River at 2 p.m. and in double overtime Spirit River scored their fourth goal to Slave Lake’s three goals.

Game three had Drayton Valley beat Brooks 5-4 in overtime.

Provost and Dewberry played the next game following opening ceremonies. Provost won 6-3 on Friday evening.

On Saturday, April 2 in the A semi-finals (game five) Innisfail beat out Slave Lake 5-1 and in game 6 in AA action it was Spirit River knocking out Daysland 3-2 in overtime.

Then Dewberry defeated Brooks 5-2.

The host Blades then took on and beat out Drayton Valley by a score of 5-2 in game eight.

In the finals on Sunday (game nine) it was Dewberry coming out on top over Innisfail 4-3 for the A final championship.

In the final match-up of the tournament Provost got off to a quick start scoring on their second shot of the game against Spirit River—and in the first period were leading 4-0.
