The Prairie Mountain Mustangs have captured the Provincial AA High School Hockey Championship banner for the second time in three years.

Kyle Devos scored three times and assisted on Nico Vigier’s first period goal as the Mustangs defeated the Morris Mavericks 4-2 in the provincial final Saturday afternoon at the Shamrock Centre in Killarney.

“Feels amazing,” texted Mustangs coach Brody Chabbert shortly after the conclusion of the gold medal game. “We as a coaching staff are incredibly proud of what our guys have accomplished. They put in their full effort and we were glad to see their hard work get rewarded.”

Prairie Mountain enjoyed a 2-0 lead after the first period and stretched their advantage over the Mavericks to 4-1 after the middle frame.

“Morris is a fast, skilled hockey team,” commented Chabbert on their Zone 4 rivals. “The key for us was to play a structured game. We were able to take some of their speed away with solid positioning and I feel that really helped us grab the gold. They deserve a lot of credit for the way they played this weekend as well. Our players were just able to keep their eyes on the prize and work the way they needed to, to come out on top.”

Lucas Siemens and Daniel Isaak did the goal scoring for the Mavericks.

The Mustangs blanked the Pembina Tigers 4-0 and beat the host Killarney/Wawanesa Raiders 6-4 in the round robin and then edged the Glenboro/Carberry/Baldur Wildcats 4-3 in overtime in the semifinals.

“We were exceptional,” stated coach Chabbert on his teams perfect weekend in Killarney. “From the net out our group was able to handle all the adversity a short tournament like this can throw at you. Our top players were our top players in each game but as a whole I was really blown away with the commitment to detail from every guy in our room. We could not have asked for a better way to close out the season.”

Kyle Devos was named the MVP of the Provincials and Morris captain Jordan Keck received the Players Choice Award.

Keck and Prairie Mountain's Remy Bosch, Tom Chanel and Nico Vigier, who scored the overtime winner in the Mustangs semifinal victory over the Wildcats, were named All-Stars along with Zaine McConnell of Glenboro/Carberry/Baldur.
