Fresh off their fourth straight Carillon Senior Hockey League crown, the Ste. Anne Aces are back at it again as they are competing in the Provincial Senior ‘B’ Hockey Championships, defending the title they won one year ago.

As it has for the past several years, the Hockey Manitoba Senior ‘B’ provincials includes the champions from the four senior leagues in the province: Carillon Senior Hockey League (CSHL), Southeastern Manitoba Hockey League (SEMHL), North Central Hockey League (NCHL) and Tiger Hills Hockey League (THHL).

Each team in the competition is playing three round robin games with the top two teams advancing to Saturday’s final at the Iceplex.

The Aces, who have already won twice, are guaranteed a spot in Saturday’s championship game.

Ste. Anne opened provincial championship play last Friday at Morris as they dominated the SEMHL champion Morden Redskins 6-2.

That 6-2 score actually flattered the Redskins. Incredibly the Aces outshot the Redskins 67-19. But the Aces only led 2-1 after the first and 3-2 after the second until Brenden Walker scored three third period goals for the Aces to finally bury the Redskins. Walker had four goals in the game. Kyle Isenor and Miguel Rondeau had first period markers for the Aces.

Ste. Anne improved to 2-0 with a 6-4 victory over the NCHL champion Miniota-Elkhorn C-Hawks Sunday at the Iceplex.

The Aces rallied from a 4-3 second period deficit, scoring three unanswered goals in the third to post the 6-4 victory.

Brenden Walker again led the Aces with two goals and an assist, while Kirklan Lycar also notched a pair and Steph Pattyn and Russell Trudeau each had a goal and two assists.

Guy St. Vincent made 29 saves in net for the Aces.

Ste. Anne will play their final round robin game against the Boissevain Border Kings Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Iceplex.

Saturday’s championship game will be played at 4:30 p.m. at Bell MTS Iceplex.
