Game 1 of the 30th Annual P.C.A.H.A Juvenile Scholarship Tournament was played last night at the main arena in Coquitlam. The best of the Juvenile players have been divided into three teams and a player from each team will win one of three five hundred dollar bursaries.
Last night's game was between the Canucks coached by (Jim Schuck and Maurice Hamlin from Richmond Minor Hockey) and the Flames coached by (Doug Shantz of Coquitlam Minor Hockey and Jordon Badari of Surrey Minor Hockey).
The Canucks gained the momentum and quickly put up 3 goals in the first few minutes of the first period. The Flames got on the board just before the end of the first and went into the second before trailing the Canucks 4-1.
The second and third periods saw terrific action, fantastic shots by both teams and an outstanding collective shot total of 86 between the two teams. The Canucks maintained their lead and won 11-6.
Each night, a player from each team is selected by a panel and voted MVP for the game. The players are awarded a medal and their points begin to accrue through the remainder of the Tournament. Last night's game MVP's were as follows:
#14 Kyle Baxter representing North Delta Minor Hockey (playing for Canucks)
#7 Trevor Yu representing Vancouver Minor Hockey (playing for the Flames)
Tonight's game is at the George Preston Arena in Langley and the puck drops at 8:15.
