Guiding the West to the victory behind the bench was Wilderness head coach and general manager Rod Aldoff who is serving as head coach of the squad.

After a scoreless opening period Drapluk fed Sean McTavish of the Sherwood Park Crusaders of Alberta for a pair of tallies to send the West on their way.

Ryan Berlin (Whitecourt, AJHL) , Andrew Taverner (Sherwood Park, AJHL) and Dante Hahn (Victoria, BCHL) notched the other markers in the triumph with Marc-Olivier Daigle (Drayton Valley, AJHL) and Ty Edmonds (Virden, MJHL) combining for the shutout.

Shots on favoured favoured the East by a 30-29 margin.

The second of the two-game, total goal series goes Sunday at Mariner’s Centre in Yarmouth, N.S. and features a 2 p.m. AT start.
