In the battle of two undefeated teams at the 2019 Alberta Cup, it was Alberta Black that won the showcase tilt Friday.

Reid MacKay scored twice and Keaton Dowhaniuk scored what proved to be the game-winner midway through the second period. Down 4-1 in the third, CJ Symanczyk cut the deficit in half and Rieger Lorenz brought Green within a goal with 5:28 left in the game. MacKay buried into the empty net with 11 seconds left to secure the win.

Red Deer’s Ty Daneault had a goal, while his Red Deer Bantam AAA Rebels teammate Nate Danielson added an assist for Alberta Black. Liam Gorman also had a goal and Red Deer product Kaden Toussaint stopped 24 shots to earn his second victory of the tournament.

Dowhaniuk was player of the game for Black and Ryan Nolan earned the honour for Green.

Black plays its final round robin game at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, while Green finishes with the 10 a.m. contest against Alberta Yellow.
