The team opened the tournament with a pair of close losses 3-1 to the Coquitlam Crunch and 3-2 to the BC Blackhawks. They responded on day two with a 5-2 win over the Jr. Blazers and an 8-0 win over the Nanaimo Snipers to move on to the Gold Pool semi-finals. The team played a fantastic semi-final game winning 5-1 against the BC Blackhawks to move on to the championship game against the Vancouver Warriors.

The final was a great game with end-to-end hockey for most of the game. The game was tied 5-5 after regulation which forced OT. The Jr. Giants killed off an OT penalty, then carried the play for most of the OT frame, which paid off with the game winning goal coming as time expired in OT to secure the 6-5 win and the 2015 BC May Madness Championship.

We are very proud of this very talented team of dedicated kids for a great result as a reward for lots of hard work. The team will continue to train for the next few weeks and conclude the spring season competing in the BC Spring Classic Tournament June 5-7.
