"A" and "B" Pool action...
In Pool "A" the Hudson Bay Old Bulls defeated the Bowsman Burn Outs 9-1 in the tourney opener. The Big Island Bears from Flin Flon gave Bowsman their second loss in round robin action 5-1, placing the Burners into the "C" semi-final. This set the stage for the Bay and Big Island to square off and decide who would go to the A semi-final. The Old Bulls proved to be to much for the Big Island Bears handing them a 5-2 loss, and a trip to the "B" semi finals.
In Pool "B" the host and defending Champions SVCU Old Tymer's opened their tourney with an 11-2 victory over the Dauphin Kinks. SVCU's next opponent would be the Gladstone Old Duckers. In a low scoring, hard fought battle, the defending Champs hung on to a 3-1 win. This put SVCU into the "A" semi-finals, leaving Gladstone and Dauphin to do battle with the winner advancing to the "B" semi-final. In a see-saw game, Gladstone prevailed with a 5-4 win and a place in the "B" semi- finals.
