10 teams, one goal, to hoist the Centennial Cup high for their home town and province.
Today was the second day of the Centennial Cup and PortageOnline went around to fans what they thought of Portage and who they were cheering for.
Doug Ibbitson from British Colombia says that even though there is no team from his home province in the Canadian Junior Hockey league, he loves to come out and watch his favourite sport! Ibbitson also mentions that he is hoping that the Battlefords North Stars from the SJHL takes the cup this year.
"They have an incredible record in Saskatchewan and haven't won that many cups lately, so I just picked them."
The massive hockey fan loves this tournament as this is his 7th one.
"I think it's an awesome tournament. I love the format with the two pools and where else can you watch 25 great hockey games."
Shauna Ward from Portage says that she is excited to be a part of the 2023 Centennial Cup noting that just being in the stands is a great experience.
"I've just really liked hockey since I was young, my team was the 1973 team that won the Centennial Cup, my grandpa was on the board. (Since then) We've always kind of followed the Terriers."
Peggy Bose who is from Port Severn, Ontario is thankful to be here in Portage to watch her grandson.
"Just to be a part of it, just to come to Portage la Prairie I have never been here before," she continuesby saying how much she loves Portage. "I have only really gotten the chance to drive through but so far its beautiful."
If you get the chance, go and take in the Centennial Cup sometime this week with our very own Portage Terriers playing tonight against the Steinbach Pistons.
Puck drop set for 7:30. If you cannot attend make sure to listen to the game live on 920 CFRY!
