Season Comes to a Close at Home

March 23

Virden, MB – The Virden Oil Capitals season came to a close on Wednesday night in front of the 2nd largest crowd in franchise history. 

A crowd of 1410 packed Tundra Place as the Caps dropped a 2-0 decision tonight. 

The Winnipeg Blues, looking to book their ticket to the MJHL Semi-Final come out firing in the first period and sent 10 shots on Sean Kuehn.

Winnipeg would open the scoring in the 2nd period Matt Leblanc got a generous bounce of the end boards and had an open net to shoot on. 

The Oil Caps kept clawing back and had numerous chances but could not beat Scott Parsons who made 22 saves for his 2nd shutout of the series. 

The Blues would ice it in the 3rd period with an empty net marker with less than a minute to play as Geordie Keane got his 2nd of the series. 

The Oil Caps power play went 0/2 on the night while the Blues failed to convert on their lone man advantage on the night. 

With the win, the Blues take the series 4-3 and move on to face the Portage Terriers!
