To get to the championship final of the Gene’s Cycle and Sports Pee Wee AA Classic, both the Yorkton Sherring Gold Terriers and Lloydminster Granite Oilfield Blazers had little trouble putting the puck in the net, but when they met in the gold-medal game, it went right down to the wire with Yorkton coming out on top with a 5-3 verdict. Yorkton, which needed an empty-net goal to seal the victory over Lloydminster, had scored 29 goals in three games to reach the final tilt while Lloydminster, which had a first-round bye due to only 15 teams being entered in the event, notched 15 goals in a pair of earlier contests. Prince Albert NAPA Raiders were the hosts for the three-day tournament and after winning their first two games – 3-2 over the Saskatoon Mission and 8-5 over the Estevan Bruins – they lost two of their next four matches including an 8-3 decision to Estevan in the “B” event final. Prince Albert’s other games had them lose 6-1 to Lloydminster in an “A” event semifinal before they outscored the Saskatoon Thunder 6-2 and the Saskatoon Mission 6-3 in “B” event qualifying games. The “C” event was claimed by Martensville after they skated to a 6-2 triumph over the Tisdale Ramblers.
