A little pre-game warm-up. There were actually quite a bit more empty seats than I expected although with the holiday season upon us I'm sure that had something to do with it.
And the evening's opponents, the Whitecourt Wolverines, a team formerly known as the St. Albert Steel before their re-location to Whitecourt at the end of last season.
I tend to focus on the goal tending, (mostly since my nephew is a goalie in a Junior C league back in Ontario) so while the game ended with a 6-3 victory for Whitecourt, both goalies were pretty brutal at times. I'm sure my nephew could hold his own with many of these players but then I'm a pretty proud uncle.
All in all, not a bad effort and it was more evenly matched than the final score suggested.
