WHL Cup - Game 4 Recap
Thursday, October 19, 2017

WITH FILES FROM WHL.CA

BC defeated Saskatchewan 7-0 in semi-final action at the WHL Cup and will now face Alberta in the gold medal game at 12:30pm on Sunday.

Payton Mount (Victoria) scored a pair of goals while Vincent Iorio (Coquitlam) and Tyler Horstmann (Richmond) each had three (3) assists in BC’s second lopsided win over Saskatchewan in as many days.

Dylan Garand (Victoria) picked up his first win of the tournament after turning aside all 17 shots he faced. The clean sheet marked the first time in WHL Cup history a province had shutout their opponents in back-to-back games during the tournament.

“I thought the boys were battling hard every shift, doing their jobs,” Garand said. “Everything went well for us tonight.

“Hopefully we can give a little more tomorrow and we’re excited for it.”

Mount tallied the game-winner 5:29 into the game on a shot that dribbled past Saskatchewan goaltender Bryan Thomson  to open the scoring.

Less than eight minutes later, BC were on the offensive again. After Ryan Helliwell (Burnaby) had his shot on net stopped, the rebound went into the slot, where Ethan Bowen (Chilliwack) was waiting and he made no mistake in burying his first of the tournament.

“Our team moved the puck really well,” forward Justin Sourdif (Surrey) said.  “The power plays really helped. We capitalized on our power plays so I think that helped us a lot in the long run.

Sourdif and Mount added goals 3:06 apart in the second period. With the score already out of hand in the third, B.C. added three more goals to their total, with Klaen Szeto (Vancouver), John Little (Parksville) and Ben King (Vernon) all lighting the lamp.
