The Cascades Jacob Kubanski, Chilliwack, BC and Mark Village, Abbotsford, BC split the duties in the Cascades net each recording a shutout victory.
“The boys were magnificent in last year’s event, against a pair of very good teams, U Victoria and TWU. I look forward to this year’s tournament with 10 student-athletes returning from last year’s squad,” said Errington.
