17 year old goaltender Ethan Woodward from Calgary made 36 saves in net. He felt the Colts took charge of the game after falling behind 1 to nothing just over 5 minutes into the first period when 20 year old forward Kristopher LeClair from Airdrie scored for the Thunder.
Colts 20 year old Captain Colton Anderson from Olds says they were able to frustrate Airdrie's offense.
Anderson had a pair of assists in Mountainview's win, while 17 year old defenceman Laine Rothenbusch from Didsbury and 18 year old forward Kale Wright from Innisfail both netted their first HJHL goals. 20 year old forward Quintin Thorburn from Olds also scored for the Colts.
