Scrimmage #3 - Team DRAZENOVIC vs. Team BYFUGLIEN - Period Two.

Between periods I had the chance to catch up with Prince George Cougars northern scout Bryan MacLean, who is also the head coach of the Cariboo Cougars Major Midget team in PG.

- Notable intensity to start the second period, and some tough saves at both ends. Kye Steinke has had his hands full early, but has turned aside some good opportunities from Brad Morrison and Kolby Johnson. Matt Kustra has been no slouch at the other end, stopping Jansen Harkins and Aaron Boyd.

- Cole Williams has really stood out positively for Team BYFUGLIEN. For a second straight game he's played with an edge, and has moved the puck well. The Cougars do have a need for right-handed defenceman moving forward, and Williams has shown that he's capable physically.

- Jansen Harkins and Kody McDonald have combined to give BYFUGLIEN the lead. Harkins made a great play to take the puck wide on the defender, and then centered it to the waiting McDonald who snuck it past Matt Kustra. 2-1 game with eight minutes left.

- Curtis Brown seals the deal with an empty-netter late. 3-1 final for Team BYFUGLIEN.

Three Stars

1) Kye Steinke (BYFUGLIEN)
2) Kody McDonald (BYFUGLIEN)
3) Shane Collins (DRAZENOVIC)
