The Thompson Junior Blazers defeated the West Central Wheat Kings 2-0 this morning (March 31) at the 2018 Western Canadian Bantam AAA Championship. 

Owen Haight and Carter Streek scored for the Blazers while Evan Pascoe recorded the shutout. Streek now has five goals in the tournament.

The win brought the Blazers' record after the round robin to 2-2, which will be good enough to compete for a bronze medal tomorrow. 

Their opponent is still unknown; the Airdrie XTreme, Seafair Islanders and Winnipeg Hawks all sit ahead of them at 2-1. 

The Blazers beat Winnipeg 6-4 while losing to Airdrie 3-1 and Seafair 5-4. West Central is still winless in the tournament at 0-3.
