|Teams:||Lethbridge Golden Hawks — 4|
|At:||Calgary Bisons — 1|
The Calgary Bisons’ undefeated streak has come to an end. The Golden Hawks rode the back of their goaltender Tyson Brouwer to a 4-1 victory over the Bisons. The Hawks were very disciplined in a game that the officials were calling tight. The Bisons’ aggression was their downfall as they took eight minors and two 10 minute misconducts in the final two periods. On the score sheet you won’t see any power play goals for the Hawks but because the number of penalties the Bisons took they couldn’t maintain any momentum.
The Bisons outshot the Hawks 44-31 but the Hawks’ defensive zone positioning was very effective at clearing rebounds and limited the Bisons’ ability to get quality chances and shots on goal. When they did, Brouwer was equal to the task, and shut them down. Tanner MacMaster made a great individual effort, after a nice stretch pass from Spencer Morse, to beat two defenders and Brouwer for the Bisons’ only goal of the game. The Hawks had 10 different players score a point while none had more than one.
Morgan Klimchuk of the Bisons is scheduled to return to the lineup on Wednesday, November 18.
Lethbridge Golden Hawks
Tyson Brouwer (G) — Tyson had a great game for the Hawks, practically beating the Bisons on his own. Tyson used his good rebound control and quick reflexes to frustrate the top scoring team in the AMBHL all afternoon. At 5’7 Tyson did a great job of making himself look big in the net; key for any young goalie. Tyson improved his record to 3-2-0 and save percentage to .919.
16 Braeden Salverda (F) — Braeden played this game with a very high level of intensity. Every shift he played hard from start to end. Braeden used his speed and aggressiveness to create offense, help on defence and give his team a boost. Although he didn’t score a point in this game he showed a lot of offensive potential.
