With several players from the Bantam Rangers on the roster, the team played two exhibition games among other activities throughout the weekend.
In their first game, the team beat Southwest, 3-1. Brayden Dube, Kyan Grouette, and Carter Zalischuk who all played for the Bantam Rangers this past season scored one goal each.
Brayden Dube took over in the team's next game. He scored six times as Parkland demolished Brandon, 15-1. Dube also recorded two assists to finish the tournament with nine points (7G).
Carter Zalischuk, Will Munro, and Xavier Mowbray all scored twice each. Landon Brown, Aiden Ziprick, and Matthew Zurba added one tally each. Mowbray also added three helpers.
"We had a pretty solid weekend and the guys really used what they learned with their teams over the season," said Ken Munro, Coach. "Everyone really seemed to be dialed in and I think there is a lot of optimism going into next season."
Of any team at the Directors Cup on the weekend, Parkland's 18 goals ranked right at the top and were seven more than Norman who scored the second most goals. Parkland also joined Eastman in only allowing two goals which were right up top
"With the 2004 guys leaving, now the 2005 guys are the leaders and it was exciting to see how the guys grabbed the torch," said Munro. "They really used what they learned all season and that was great. It was nice to see them use their skill."
