PeeWee Lakers play hard, win gold

Three wins, one tie and a gold were the final results for the Johel Group Pee Wee Lakers last weekend.

Three wins, one tie and a gold were the final results for the Johel Group Pee Wee Lakers  last weekend.

The hockey team hosted a Pee Wee tournament at the Lake Cowichan Sports Arena, Dec. 7-9. Visiting teams came from Powell River, Campbell River and the Alberni Valley to play against the 11-, 12-, and 13-year old players.

The Lakers opened the tournament Friday, Dec. 7, in a well-matched game against Port Alberni’s team. The game was well into the second period before either team managed a goal and ended with a 3-3 tie. MVP for that game was Amber Clayton and Max Baird received the Digger Award.

On Saturday, Dec. 8, the Lakers played opposite Powell River in their first game of the day, and as coach Greg Clayton said, it was a blow out.

“We played well,” Clayton said. “The whole team produced in that game.”

The Lakers trounced Powell River 16-2. MVP for that game was Shalyn Jones, and the Digger Award went to Erin Croteau.

Their second game on Saturday, he said, was a closer game, but a good one, with the Lakers again taking the lead with a 8-2 win over Campbell River. This propelled them into the finals, where they would be once again facing Port Alberni’s team on Sunday, Dec. 9. MVP for the second game on Saturday was Jayden Coulsen, and the Digger Award went to Nathan Anderson.

In the final game, it was neck-in-neck until the final, tie-breaking goal was scored by Joey Janz.

“It was really exciting,” Clayton said. “The fans in the arena were on their feet for almost the whole game.”

Kevin Stewart captured the MVP title in the final game, and Joey Janz took the Digger Award.

Overall, Clayton said the tournament was a lot of fun, not the least of which was claiming the trophy and the gold title.
