“I think the biggest advantage we have over everyone here is our experience
and that showed tonight. We were in a similar situation versus Pickering in the
final last year, actually down a goal though, and we stayed calm and got the
job done. It’s kind of the same feeling on the bench, we’ve been here
before and we know how to overcome it.”
- Beljo on playing in a one-goal game late.
“Sometimes you just need a bounce to go your way to get some confidence.
Once we got the first one the guys got going. Portage didn’t have much left
in the tank, and we wanted to jump on them early and we were able to do
that. We’re excited about the result, but we aren’t done yet.”
North Stars head coach Brayden Klimosko (Humboldt, Sask.) on the effort.
