The Flathead Lady Fusion hockey team is set to host its annual tournament — the 19U Winter Classic — at the Woodland Park ice rink beginning today. The tournament will run through Saturday, with a championship game scheduled for 4:15 p.m.
The Fusion will play twice on Thursday (2 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.), twice on Friday (9:45 a.m. and 6:15 p.m.) and possibly once on Saturday.
Four teams will join the Fusion for round-robin play — the Missoula Lady Bruins, Juan de Fuca (British Columbia) Grizzlies, Piikani (Washington) Lady Warriors and Salmon (Idaho) Lady Rapids.
The top four teams out of the five competing will earn a spot in Saturday’s final rounds.
The teams with the two best records will play in the championship game, while the Nos. 3 and 4 teams will face off in a consolation matchup at 2:30 p.m.
