APRIL 09, 2017 CO-ED TOURNAMENT GAME # 4
The Pelicans in their Nissan jerseys were fired up to skate hard in the final game of the tournament but
just 19 seconds into the game Team Widas carried the opening face-off right to the Pelicans goal and put the puck
in the net to put the funk on the Pelicans in the opening minute. The next goal against followed with-in a couple of minutes and the Pelicans never managed to catch up on the scoreboard. Final was 8 -4 for Team Widas.
Highlights for the Pelicans Andy Juntila got the first Pelicans goal on a nice play. Colleen Mandell tipped in a strong
shot from the blue line by Aly Viau. Rob Vanenkenvoort scored another 2 goals the 2nd one on a break-away or semi-break-away and nice shot past the Team Widas goalie.
Thanks to Eve Derkson for again being the director of the Co-Ed tournament. No wins for the Pelicans but it was
a lot of fun at Cornerstone over the tournament weekend. See you all next time and thanks for skating with the birds.

APRIL 09, 2017 CO-ED TOURNAMENT GAME # 3
Things just kept getting worse for the Pelicans in the tournament. In addition to dominating this game the
Bureau & Hjort crew appeared with their Minneapolis Mercedes Benz jerseys trying to out class the Pelicans Nissan
jerseys... and they did. So the visitor team (Pelicans) wore white again and left the black & silver Nissan jerseys in the dressing rooms. Highlights for the Pelicans goals by Mangless, Strom, and Mandell. Pelicans goalie Baker played well getting buzzed by many shots. Three of the goals were off odd bounces and deflections just tough luck goals.
GUYS & DOLLS 6 NISSAN-PELICANS (Beauties & Beasts) 4

APRIL 08, 2017 CO-ED TOURNAMENT GAME # 2
This was a see-saw competitive contest up to about the final 5 minutes when the Guys & Dolls team
made a surge and the Nissan Pelican team faded. Result was a come-back win for the Guys & Dolls team.
Rob Vanenkenvoort got his 3rd and 4th goals of the tourney. Craig Pakkala and Colleen Mandell both scored
nice goals on strong efforts driving to the net but the team could not hold the lead.
Hockey legend Jake Mangless was heard to say that the Pelicans have tended to play hell and have a poor record
in all their tournament appearances. The team will endeavor to turn that around in Sunday's games.
