In what some have called a Cinderella Season for the Portage Terriers, Brad Bowles has been a stand out in his own right. Finishing the season tied for 2nd in points, winning the MVP for the team at the Terriers’ Banquet and being named to the all-star team at the Western Canada Cup, it is no surprise that he’s cleaning up at the RBC Cup too.
I asked Brad how it felt to be recognized in such great company. ” It was an unbelievable feeling hearing my name for Top Forward and MVP and having it be in the RBC Cup makes it that much more special. In a tournament like this full of the best in Canada, it’s not something I expected. ”
Awards aside, Brad talked about what tonight’s game for the Championship means to him and the team. ” Tonight’s game is obviously the biggest it gets in Junior hockey. It’s gonna be a high pace game and no room for errors. It’s hard to believe we have actually made it to the RBC Cup final, but the job still isn’t done yet. Now we need to dig in for one more game and get it done.”
Brad went on to talk about the support the Terriers have had during this Championship run and what it’s meant to the team to have Portage behind them. ” The support we’ve had in this tournament has been unbelievable. It’s been a packed rink for all our games which makes the experience that much better. The atmosphere on the ice has been amazing! ”
