Scott McManaman challenges Canada at Royal Bank Cup

AMHERST - First they conquered Eastern Canada, now they travel to Cornwall, Ont., to take on the rest of the country, and Amherst's Scott McManaman is doing more than going along for the ride, he's helping drive the bus.

AMHERST - First they conquered Eastern Canada, now they travel to Cornwall, Ont., to take on the rest of the country, and Amherst's Scott McManaman is doing more than going along for the ride, he's helping drive the bus.
When the Weeks Crushers won the Fred Page Tournament, McManaman finished in the tournament's top 10 for points and helped lead the Weeks Crushers to tournament victory.
Now the Weeks Crushers are flying to the 2008 RBC (Royal Bank Cup) tomorrow afternoon where they will face off against four other Jr. A teams from across the country.
"We won the Fred Page and we want to just keep going and try to win a Championship when we're down there," McManaman said.
The Weeks Crushers have been keeping a pretty tight schedule since winning the Fred Page Cup.
"We've been on the ice every day since we won and we've had meals and meetings and done a lot of team stuff," McManaman said.
Today they will go over game videos of the other teams in the tournament.
The teams they will look at are the Camrose Kodiaks out of Alberta, the Humboldt Broncos out of Saskatchewan and two Ontario teams - the Oakville Blades and the Cornwall Colts.
Their first game is on Sunday afternoon against the Camrose Kodiaks.
The tournament lasts for 10 days. The Weeks Crushers play Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday in the preliminary rounds, with the semifinals taking place on Thursday and the championship game on Sunday. On Friday the teams attend a banquet.
McManaman, who is in his final year of junior eligibility, attends St. Francis Xavier University and hopes to go into the professional ranks
The Fred Page Cup and the RBC are great opportunities for him to showcase his talents.
During the Fred Page Cup McManaman was noticed by scouts from St. Francis Xavier and Dalhousie and hopes more schools will take notice.
"This tournament will draw a lot of universities from the States and all over Canada," McManaman said. "Hopefully I can play for a university team or a college but I go to St. FX now so it would be nice to stay at home."
