CJS netminder No.1

Goalie Ryann Bannerman of CJS Olympiens is the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League's player of the week for the CTV Division 1.

Bannerman stopped 18 of 20 shots in her team's 3-2 victory over the River East Kodiaks in the semifinal series opener, then posted a 32-save shutout in the second game to help her team advance.

For the Winnipeg Free Press Division 2, Beliveau Barracudas' Shayn Laramee is the player of the week after a four-goal performance in her team's semifinal series win over Shaftesbury.

Laramee scored her team's only goal in the 2-1 loss in the series opener, then came back with another in a 2-1 victory and followed that up with two goals and an assist in the 4-2 series-clincher.


Wesmen fall to Vikes


Though the University of Winnipeg Wesmen took it to Victoria over the weekend, the final playoff victory they needed was not in the cards.

The Wesmen fell in the best-of-three Canada West quarter-final against the rival Vikes, after thumping them 79-51 to open the series. But the Wesmen couldn't find another win, dropping Saturday's game 75-61 and Sunday's match 76-63 against the country's fourth-ranked CIS team. The quarter-final loss ended their season, and marked the final games in Wesmen colours for fifth-years Steven Wesley and Andrew Cunningham.

At least they can say they left it all on the court. Wesley, the team's co-captain, scored 50 points and snatched up 22 rebounds across the three games, earning him a nod as the Wesmen's Garbonzo's Player of the Week. Seventeen of those points, and 12 of the rebounds, came in the deciding final game. Cunningham, meanwhile, helped net 15 points in that match to wrap up his college career.


Fowler Manitoba champ


Brandon's Lois Fowler is on her way to the 2014 Canadian Senior curling championships in Yellowknife after winning the Manitoba title Monday with a 6-4 decision over Sandra Cowling of Hamiota.

The Tim Hortons Senior Women's Open Provincial Championship was held at the Brandon Curling Club.

Fowler, third Maureen Bonar, second Cathy Gauthier and lead Allyson Stewart, defeated Cowling 8-5 in the 1-versus-1 game. Cowling then dispatched Laurie Deprez of Stonewall 6-5 in the semifinal.

In the Manitoba Senior Men's championship, Kelly Robertson of Neepawa defeated West Kildonan's Bob Sigurdson 7-3 in Monday's final in Brandon.

Robertson, third Doug Armour, second Peter Prokopowich and lead Bob Scales, had lost the 1-versus-1 game to Sigurdson but played their way to the final by ousting Brandon's Kellty McMechan, 7-5.

The 2014 Canadian Senior goes March 22-30.


Terriers goalie saves up a storm


Portage Terriers rookie goalie Zac Robidoux has earned Manitoba Junior Hockey League Recycle Everywhere player of the week honours.

The Winnipeg native, 17, won both starts last week, giving up just one goal in two games.

Robidoux's goaltending partner Talor Joseph won the award earlier this month.

Runners-up this week included goalie Brian Archibald of the OCN Blizzard defenseman Channing Bresciani of the Winnipeg Blues.
