Team  celebrates winning goal scored by Logan Chisholm

Prince George, B.C. -The Cape Breton West Islanders are the golden boys of the Telus Cup

The gold medal game  stared with  Quebec  drawing first blood at 3:08  of the first period when Samuel dickner got one by  Cape Breton goalie Colton Ellis.

Cape Breton  responded  just  2 minutes later when Captain Jacob Hudson  scored for the West Islanders.  The tie wouldn’t last long as Quebec would  take the lead at 6:10,  and Cape Breton  responded  less than  two minutes later,  once again  the game was tied.

Quebec’s Samuel Dickner would strike again at the 16:33 mark,  giving Quebec the lead,   then  Vincent Guy would double that lead with a goal  with just 31 seconds left  in the first period.

The second period was all Quebec,  as they outshot  Cape Breton 12 to 5,  but  neither team was able to score.

Cape Breton would  claw back  with Stephen Fox scoring at 4:40 of the  third  to make it a 4-3 game. Then  Logan Chisholm tied it up at 14:10 of the third period.

Into the 10 minute overtime,  the Cape Breton boys  kept up the pressure, and Logan Chisholm  scored at  5:39 to give the  Cape Breton West Islanders the gold medal.





Cape Breton won, but I think Quebec was the better team.

Traditionally the winner is considered the better team…thats why they play the games

NyteHawk—Did you see this game?? I would like other fans opinions that attended the game.

Cape Breton had great goaltending and a steady team. They were consistent from the start of every game until the end of every game. Most team were inconsistent in their play and this led to the better team winning the championship. Colton Ellis, the CB goaltender has a very bright future in hockey, remember that name!!!
