The Williams Lake Bantam Timberwolves capped off a perfect weekend Sunday beating the Prince George Tier 2 Cougars, 7-0, at its icebreaker tournament in Williams Lake.

The Timberwolves carried the play through most of the game and were able to score repeatedly on a Prince George team they’d beaten 6-0 the previous day.

Sunday’s contest saw both teams spend a considerable amount of time in the penalty box, however, Williams Lake was able to capitalize on its chances to seal the win.

Williams Lake netminder Hayden Lyons recorded his second consecutive shutout against the Cougars, helping Williams Lake wrap up a perfect 4-0 weekend which saw them outscore their opponents 27-3.

Scoring for Williams Lake in Sunday’s win were Daine DuBois, Corey Loring, Brett Alexander, Cody Swan, Dylan McNeil, William Paynton and Jimmy Belleau.

The Williams Lake Bantam Timberwolves girls’ squad also opened its season on the weekend with a two-game series against the Prince George Cougars.

The T-wolves fell 2-0 Saturday, before edging the Cougars 2-1 Sunday morning at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
