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.
