Lumsden Monarchs win QVHHL Championship

The Lumsden Monarchs defeated the Balcarres Broncs 4-3 Sunday evening in Lumsden and won the first QVHHL Championship 3 games to 1. The Monarchs scored on their first shot of the game on a goal from Sam Aulie. The Broncs then proceeded to put the pressure on for the first half of the period but could not score. Riley Riddell would score with just under six minutes left in the period to put the Monarchs up 2-0 and then with one minute left in the period Kyle Johnson scored to put the Monarchs up 3-0 going into the second period.

Broncs force game four in Lumsden on Sunday

This type of score doesn't happen often in our league...nor does it happen in the NHL often but the fact is it happens.  The Calgary Flames scored nine goals tonight in their victory over the Oilers...well so did the Balcarres Broncs in their game tonight. The Broncs led 5-4 after one period and were down 8-6 after two periods. In the the third period Brayden Frank scored and then  Justin Bernhardt scored short handed with under two minutes to play. Cory Kosloski scored their ninth goal in overtime to win the game 9-8 and to force a game four in Lumsden on Sunday at 6:00 p.m.

Monarchs take 2-0 lead in League Final

A great playoff hockey atmosphere with a great crowd and 50/50, fast paced hockey with lots of chances for both teams to score...just 34 seconds into the first period Jaxon Tait would put the Broncs up 1-0. The Broncs would continue to put pressure on the Monarchs throughout the first ten minutes of the game but could not score. The Monarchs picked things up with nine minutes left in the period on a goal from Nolan Reid. Just over a minute later Kevin DuFour would score and the period ended 2-1 with the Broncs holding a 16-14 shot advantage.

Late in the second OT period, Andrew Perrault scored to break a 1-1 tie that had been in place since the first period and the Lumsden Monarchs take game one of our final 2-1. Tyler Bell scored the first goal of the game in the first period to put the Broncs up 1-0.  Kevin DuFour then scored for the Monarchs and it was 1-1 after one period and would remain that way through to the second OT period. Dawson MacAuley picked up the OT win in the Lumsden net . Dean Brothen was in the Balcarres net. The Broncs had five minor penalties and the Monarchs had three.
