GRAND FALLS-WINDSOR, NL-The Grand Falls-Windsor Bantam B Cats finished off their season with a bang.

Playing in the provincial mega 16-team tournament in Corner Brook this past week, the Cats picked up a gold medal in Tier 4.

They downed the Bonavista Cabots – 2-1 in the final.

Outstanding goaltending from Gavin Blanchard kept the Cats close in the final after falling behind 1-0 on a first period Cabot’s goal.

Goals 30 seconds apart in the second period by Shannon Ivey and then Eric Hewitt sealed the victory however.

In the preliminary round earlier in the tournament, the Cats fell by identical 4-1 scores to Conception Bay Regional and St. John’s Caps, which resulted in the Tier 4 ranking.

The outcomes immediately improved as the Cats posted a 2-0 win over Fogo with Gavin Blanchard earning a shutout.

That was followed by a 3-1 win over Port Aux Basques.

The final round robin game was a preview of the final against the Cabots with the Cats scoring a 4-2 victory to earn home ice advantage for the final.
