Ridge Meadows will be hosting the U15 final four tournament this weekend at local rinks, with schedules pending.
The U13 A1 team played four games and went to overtime before finally finishing their four-point tournament. They lost the first game to the Richmond Jets 4-3, then won the next contest 5-2 to even it up. The third game didn’t decide anything, ending in a 2-2 tie. The Rustlers finally took the series in a fourth game by a 4-3 score on Sunday night, with Roby Bui scoring the game and series winner.
