Wickenheiser Cup: Duchesne 3, Oakville 1
Duchesne forward Trevor Begley scored in the first period and would eventually record a hat trick en route to a 3-1 win against the Oakville Tigers in the Wickenheiser Cup game on Wednesday night. Duchesne goaltender Jack Boschert stopped 23 of 24 shots in the win, giving up just one goal on a 3-on-1 break from Oakville forward Justin Skaggs.
