The 2018 Allan Cup officially wrapped up on Saturday night with an exciting Gold Medal Game played between the Stoney Creek Generals and Lacombe Generals. Ultimately, Stoney Creek managed to come on top with a 7-4 victory to win the Allan Cup.

The tournament was a huge success from a business perspective in Rosetown, especially over the weekend. Local restaurants, hotels and other sanctions thrived throughout the entire week and helped customers from all different parts in the nation.

Games in the tournament that didn't feature the hometown Rosetown Red Wings were some of the best attended games in the Allan Cup dating back 5-10 years. This shows that Rosetown is passionate about hockey, and can host future events.

Derek LeBlanc, player with the Rosetown Red Wings, said he had a chance to catch some of the other games in the tournament and speak with travellers about the accommodations in town. "I've talked to a few friends from other teams that brought families and all of them have had positive comments about the lifestyle here in Rosetown. The support we have here in the community is unreal, and they definitely felt that in their week long stay." LeBlanc said proudly.

Even with both Saskatchewan teams being knocked out in the quarter-finals part of the draw, that never stopped the die-hard fans from showing up to the rest of the games and events throughout the weekend. Being a good sport is something that many citizens can hold themselves accountable for around these parts.
