2013 University Cup: Cinderella story continues for Warriors

You know when they say that the fear of players and fans at a short tournament like the University Cup is running into a hot goalie - well it happened to the top-ranked and favourite Alberta Golden Bears as they outshot the Waterloo Warriors 43-13, yet still lost 2-1 in the first game at the 2013 University Cup in Saskatoon.

All the goals in the game came on power plays. The CIS's top point guy, Justin Larson, put the underdog Warriors up 1-0 at 14:09 on a sweet pass from Colin Behenna. There wasn't another goal until 7:55 of the third when Blake Chartier was all alone in front of the net to put in another Behenna pass. Alberta finally scored on the PP at 16:30 of the third as Torrie Dyke scored on the rebound of a heavy Jesse Craige shot.

The Bears hit the crossbar or posts five times in the game, including a final scoring attempt as time expired. Player of Game Keaton Hartigan made 42 saves in the game to steal the win, and break the afternoon pool wide open.
