The Williams Lake Atom Development team won a silver medal in a 12-team hockey tournament in Osoyoos March 16-18.
Round robin games were played in Osoyoos and Oliver with Williams Lake taking an 8-3 win over Port Coquitlam, a 3-1 silencing of Merritt and a tightly-contested 4-3 win over North Okanagan.
Wrapping up its round robin with three wins and no losses Williams Lake advanced to the semifinal, winning a 6-2 game over Port Moody to advance to Sunday’s final.
There, after an extremely hard-fought game featuring non-stop, frantic action, Cranbrook downed Williams Lake, 10-6, for the gold.
The silver medal and the tournament put a close to the T-wolves’ highly-successful season.
The team finished its season winning gold medals in Quesnel and Prince George, a silver in Osoyoos and at a Williams Lake tournament, and with strong finishes in Salmon Arm, Kamloops and Enderby.
The team finished its season winning 85 per cent of its games.
The team said its success can be attributed to the strong team approach from the players, coaches, trainer, manager and parents.
