RED DEER - Team Alberta U16 Male opened up round-robin play at the 2019 Canada Winter Games with a 4-3 overtime loss to Saskatchewan Saturday night.

Kai Uchacz opened the scoring for Alberta early in the first, but Saskatchewan countered just two minutes later on the powerplay. Dylan Guenther’s powerplay marker gave Alberta the lead heading into the second period, where Saskatchewan tied the game again.
Zack Stringer’s late second period goal gave Alberta the lead once more, but Saskatchewan tied the game yet again halfway through the third, before Nolan Allan sealed the victory for his team.
Goaltender Drew Sim made 18 saves for Alberta, while his counterpart Brent Mirwald stood tall to earn the win for Saskatchewan, stopping 40 of the 43 shots he faces.
Team Alberta is right back at it again Sunday afternoon against Manitoba at 4:00pm at the Centrium. The game will be shown on TSN at 5:00pm.
