Team Swtizerland won the bronze medal at the Mariners Centre in Yarmouth on Saturday evening, Nov. 10, by shutting out Canada East 6-0.

The Swiss scored twice in the first period, once in the second and three times in the third. They team commanded the game, compared to Canada East

More noteable in the third period is that fact that 32 penalties were handed out, including eleven 10-minute misconducts, five of which went to Canada East, who seemed to be playing out their frustration on the ice at not being able to score a goal.

Still, at the rate that the players from both teams were being ejected from the game, it looked as if the bronze medal presentation to half of the Swiss team would have to take place in the dressing room.

Not to have medalled was a disappointing finish to the tournament for Canada East, which in the last two years had won a silver medal. This is only the second time in the tournament's seven-year history that Canada East finishes without a medal. The team has never won a gold medal.

The gold medal game goes Sunday evening between Team USA and Canada West. (Note: the time of the game has changed. It is now a 7:30 p.m. start time, not 7 p.m. as indicated on the tickets.)

Earlier in the day on Saturday, Team Russia defeated the Czech Republic in the 5th place verus 6th place game.

Also on Sunday afternoon at the Mariners Centre is the CJHL Prospects game. Local player Morgan Messenger of the Yarmouth Mariners is on the roster for Canada East. Messenger was named the player of the game for Team East at the prospects game that had been held Saturday evening in Digby. Team West won the game 5-0.
