Bantam T-wolves secure home ice

The Williams Lake Bantam Rep Timberwolves secured home-ice advantage for playoffs after winning twice on the weekend against Prince George.

The Williams Lake Bantam Rep Timberwolves stole two victories from the Prince George Bantam Cougars on the road Saturday to secure home-ice advantage at league playoffs in the new year.

Saturday morning Williams Lake skated away with a convincing 7-2 victory.

In front of a large hometown crowd the Timberwolves scored early and never looked back to dominate the game. Daine Dubois and William Paynton led the way for Williams Lake with three points each, while Hayden Lyons picked up the win between the pipes.

Later in the afternoon the two teams clashed again with Williams Lake icing an impressive 10-3 win.

The T-wolves’ goals came early and often as Williams Lake skated into the second period with a 5-0 lead.

Dubois had another solid outing for the T-wolves collecting seven points (four goals, three assists) while Paynton had five points (two goals, three assists). Corey Loring also added a pair of goals in the winning effort with Lyons, again, recording the win in goal.

The Timberwolves will now have a short break over the holidays, before returning to the ice New Year’s Day at the Kamloops International Bantam Hockey Tournament.
