After five hard fought games, the Bantam C CNN Spurs are provincial champions.
 
Finishing the tournament with a record of 4-1-0, the Spurs kept their momentum going all the way until the final second of their 3-0 gold medal win.
 
With provincial action starting on Friday (March 17), the Spurs kicked off day one at provincials with a win against Stettler and a tie against Barrhead; day two brought a victory over Lethbridge, sending them to the semi-finals.
 
Sunday morning saw the Spurs face off against Fairview and come away with a 5-2 win and a place in the provincial final.
 
In front of a packed home arena, the Spurs took on the Vermillion Tigers.
 
After a first period with no goals and the Tigers significantly out-shooting the Spurs, the team refocused in the second.
 
"We knew that this was going to be a tight game and the first period proved it. Our goalie held us in incredibly throughout the first period, they tripled us in shots and he held us in there to give us a chance, so big thanks to Cole (Carey). We had to come out strong and give him some support after what he did for us," said centre and captain for the Spurs, Brady Smith.
 
Smith broke the ice early in the second. Dalton Mackeigan would add another before the end of the period. The third and final goal, sealing the Spurs victory, came late in the third from Jackson Land. Aiden Mifflin added two assists.
 
"We beat them twice during the zone final and we just wanted to beat them again," said Smith. "We knew they'd be hungry and didn't want to lose three times but we wanted to win more than they did."
 
After losing out in league playoffs, the Spurs were determined to win the gold in front of their home crowd.
 
"It feels great, we couldn't have done it without Cole, big shout out to him he played awesome. We really couldn't have asked for a better turnout," Smith added.
 
Recaps for day one and day two of provincials are also available.
