It may not be the colour they were hoping for, but GDI Goalies Matthew Thiessen and Duncan McGovern can be proud of the silver medal they brought home from the Western Canada U-16 Challenge Cup.
Team Manitoba came up just short Sunday as they fell 3-0 to Team Alberta in the Gold Medal game for the Western Canada U-16 Challenge Cup. GDI Goalie Matthew Thiessen was solid all tournament for Team Manitoba appearing in every game. Thiessen turned aside 29 of the 31 shots fired his way during the gold medal game.
Unfortunately, it wasn't enough as Team Alberta would add an empty net goal and take the game 3-0.
Thiessen would finish the tournament with a record of 2-2 to go along with a Gaa of 2.32 and Sv% of .918. At the conclusion of the tournament Thiessen was recognized for his strong play and named to the tournament All-Star team.
