The Tiger Fire was very excited to be playing the Stamps and the energy level was high as they were seeking a competitive game to prepare for the Special Olympics Manitoba Winter Games in Winnipeg on Saturday, February 20th.

Goaltenders; Riley McKay for Stampeders, Angie Ferland and Kolton Leslie were put to the test all afternoon. Tiger’s regular goalie, Jarret Gingras is out of play for 2 weeks but came out to cheer on his fellow athletes.

The Tiger Fire team had a lot of fun and plenty of exercise battling against the local hockey stars. Tigers Coach June Mosiondz stated that all of the team members contributed and gave 100%.

At the end of regulation the game was 10-10. Despite some very competitive players, sportsmanship prevailed as both sides settled on the tie.

A Big Thank you to the Stampeder Hockey Players who came out to hit the floor with the Tigers.
