It’s the second year in a row West has won the prospects competition, and the fifth time since the inaugural event in 2005.

Down 5-0 heading into the back-end of the two-game, total goal series after being blanked Saturday night in Digby, N.S., East got on the board early when Joe McKeown (Campbellford, Ont./Wellington, OJHL) scored just 2:24 in.

Aidan Wallace (Markham, Ont./Pickering, OJHL) made it a 2-0 game just over two minutes later, and goals from Derian Plouffe (Nepean, Ont./Kanata, CCHL) and Brandon Pye (St. John’s, N.L./Truro, MHL) late in the first period pushed the East advantage to 4-0 after 20 minutes and cut the West aggregate lead to just a single goal at 5-4.

West finally got one back early in the second period thanks to a shorthanded marker from Ryan Berlin (Edmonton, Alta./Whitecourt, AJHL), but Wallace’s second goal just past the midway point of the period got East within a goal again.

Jesse Lussier (Petawawa, Ont./Kemptville, CCHL) brought East all the way back with a goal 5:21 into the third period, but Plevy got the winner late, stepping into the slot and rifling a shot over the blocker of Hayden Lavigne (Brampton, Ont./Wellington, OJHL).

Berlin rounded out the scoring for West by converting a late breakaway for his second of the game.

Just as they did Saturday night, all four goaltenders saw time between the pipes – Lavigne and Chase Marchand (Halifax, N.S./Amherst, MHL) split the duties for East, while Ty Edmonds (Winnipeg, Man./Virden, MJHL) and Marc-Olivier Daigle (Delson, Que./Drayton Valley, AJHL) saw 30 minutes of action each for West.
