By Ian Waldbauer

Simply put, it was a war. And when the clock hit zero and the air cleared, the good guys walked away from the first round victorious.  The first round of the Canada West playoffs offered high intensity hockey, good goaltending, and a slough of powerplay goals; one for every girl with missing teeth cheering for the… Continue reading Dinos pop caps in Pronghorn posteriors
