July 7

This was to be the final game of the year for the Raiders at the Bell against the Blues but they unfortunately forfeited the game. Was not the way that the Raiders wanted to end the season as we always look to play all of our games but it wasn’t in the cards. The forfeit allowed the Raiders to finish the season with a sparkling 19-1 record as they showed to be the class of the league in the Alberta Junior A circuit for this season. Hats off to a wonderful regular season for the boys.

But now the real season is about to begin!! Finishing first place will give the Raiders some well deserved time off to rest some wounds and get healthy while giving them a great opportunity to get in some good practice time that is tough to come by during the season. The boys will be awaiting the winner of the Mounties vs SWAT semi-final which will start this weekend here is Calgary. The schedule will be out soon for the finals and we look forward to some great playoff action and a run to a birth in the Minto Cup in Brampton ON.

Coach Andrew McBride – ‘We’ve executed at a high level all year but all we have done is given ourselves an opportunity to compete in the post season. Now the real work begins.’
