Dauphin, Canada

It was quite the weekend for the McCreary Bantam Mustangs, as they were in Brandon for the Tournament of Champions, and they ended up winning the whole tournament.

"It was a huge accomplishment for us," said Matthew Evenson, Head Coach.  "We had to win a Tournament of Champions, just to get to this one, this past weekend.  It was huge for the team and the community.  They supported us really well."

The team will now prepare for a playoff game, on Thursday, against Minnedosa.

"We're looking forward to that game," said Evenson.  "We ended up fifth in our league, so we have to play the fourth place team.  We battled through injuries, and sickness, all season long.  We didn't finish, where we wanted to, in the regular season, so we have to elevate our play now."

The Mustangs will host Bantam C Provincials in early March.

"We're just taking it one game at a time, so we're not focusing on provincials right now," said Evenson.  "We're not the same team we were before Christmas.  We're just starting to get back healthy.  Everyone's playing a high tempo game here, and I think we have a really good chance at winning it this year."

The Mustangs also won the Rural Tournament of Champions in Carberry, earlier this season.
