All We Wanted for Xmas
Jan 8, 2012, 7:06 pm

It was the  night before Xmas and all the Cats were packing for the bus, cause off to Calgary we were in a Xmas rush. Yea once again the Westman Wildcats were off to the Mac Tournament, This year we found ourselves in in a pool with some familar teams. First up  the Regina Rebels this like previous games was a close affair with the Rebels coming out on top 2-1. The second game was our weakest effort as we could not seem to find our rythme against a Calgary Chaos team who we had beaten earlier in the year. Our third game was against Alberta league leading Edmonton Thunder, this was a strong effort for the cats and was 3-2 late inthe game with the cats pushing hard short handed when the Thunder were able to take advantage and put them ahead 4-2. The final game for the Cats was an up and down affair  with the Fraser Valley Phantoms of B.C and ended in a 3-3 tie. It is important to note that the final of the tournament was played by Regina and Edmonton with the Rebels winning 3-2 in overtime.

Ah back home to the happy confines of the Hartney Arena and three league games on tap. First up the Parkland Panthers a new member of the league. Friday evening saw the Cats and Panthers face off, the cats finally found their scoring touch that had gone missing in Calgary witha a number of different players picking up points in a 15-2 win.

Saturday was a better effort by the Panthers as they forced us to play a little more defensive for a period and a half before the cats started clicking again, final score 9-1 Wildcats. Sunday found the Cats preparing to take on the east division leading Winnipeg Avros, this would be the second meeting of the two teams as the cats had met and beat them 2-1 in a exhibition match in November. This game was no different then the first as both teams battled hard and traded goals over the sixty minutes with the Cats coming out on top 5-4. The Wildcats had a good weekend picking up all six points avaiable in league play, and are looking forward to playing Pembia Valley next Friday and the Winnipeg Avros next Saturday on the road.

The cats first game Thursday was against the St. Albert Slash with the Cats coming out on top with a 3-2 win. Friday saw two games with the first being against the Weyburn Gold wings , this was a close game for most of the way until a break down with 4 minutes remaining in which the Cats gave up 3 goals while pressing the result was  a 6-2 loss. Friday evening saw the Wildcats meeting up for a rematch against the Okanagan Hockey Academy who they lost to in Minniapolis in a 1-0 game, this one started out as a carbon copy of the first meeting until  OHA pumped in two goals in the start of the second period. This caused a huge breakdown with OHA ending the period up 5-1 the cats were able to regroup for the third and held them to a single goal for the second loss in a row 6-1.

Saturday found the Cats facing the Regina Rebels, once again a very tight game with the score being 0-0 until the 16 minute mark of the third when Regina scored a goal the rest of the game saw the wildcats battle but unable to score while getting plenty of opportunities, meanwhile the Rebels snuck in another couple of goals, final 3-0.
