The Williams Lake Bantam Tier 2 Timberwolves are heading into their home tournament this weekend with momentum on their side following a two-game win streak.

The weekend’s wins proved valuable as Williams Lake moved past Vernon in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association standings. The Timberwolves currently sit in third place with seven wins and four losses — just three points back of first-place Kelowna.

As this year’s host of the provincial championship March 15-19 and with four games left in their OMAHA regular season — all on home ice — the Timberwolves will be looking to keep rolling this weekend at their home tournament.

Teams at the tournament will be Kamloops, Quesnel and Fort St. John.

The Timberwolves open its tournament Friday at 6:15 p.m. versus Fort St. John, then play Saturday morning at 8:45 a.m. against Quesnel and, later, at 5:45 p.m. taking on Kamloops.

Sunday’s bronze medal game gets underway at 10:30 a.m., before the gold medal game is slated to follow at 1 p.m.

All games take place at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
