Winsdsor Wins Memorial Cup Championship

This has nothing to do at all in any way with BU hockey, but since there was nothing else going on I thought that would put in.

The Windsor Spitfires, a junior hockey power house, destroyed tournament host the Brandon Wheat Kings 9-1 in the Memorial Cup Championship game. This is the second year in a row that Windsor took the  cup and some might consider the Spitfires the Montreal Canadians of major junior hockey.

Windsor jumped out a one lead in the first and never looked back. Adam Henrique was able to sneak a shot through Wheat Kings goalie Jacob De Serres leg pads and Windsor spit fire at Brandon the rest of the night, and never looked back.

With 17 seconds left in the first period, the Spitfires took a two goal lead as Eric Wellwood found the back of the net.

After a successful penalty kill, Windsor electrifying, Taylor Hall scored on a Spitfire power play. After that game, Hall was named tournament MVP. At this point the game was over.

The Spitfires went on to score three  more goals in the second period and they would pick up three more in the third frame. All in all it is obviously clear that Windsor was the better team tonight. So like the plane did back in World War II, the Spitfires took care of business. Final score Windsor nine, Brandon one.
