Bantam T-wolves win gold in Quesnel

The Williams Lake Bantam Tier 2 Timberwolves went unbeaten at a tournament in Quesnel during the weekend.

The Williams Lake Bantam Tier 2 Timberwolves went unbeaten at a tournament in Quesnel during the weekend to march away with the gold medal.

The T-wolves outscored their opposition 34-16 in five outings in the winning effort. In the final, Williams Lake edged Fort St. John, 3-2, to win the gold.

Williams Lake took full advantage on the power play with Brody Conroy, Brendan Pigeon and Tanner Hooper all converting with the extra man. Assists went to Grady Thomas (3) and Conroy (2).

The tournament semifinal saw the Timberwolves lay a 9-3 drubbing on Vanderhoof led by a two-goal effort from Thomas.

Lane Paddison, Tristan Takats, Justin Swan, Hooper, Conroy and Jake Jackson scored in the win, while assists went to Thomas (2), Jackson (2), Paddison (2), Pigeon and Conroy.

Williams Lake opened its tournament Friday with a 6-3 doubling of Prince George — a team they’ll face on the road Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 in league games.

Thomas, again, led the charge notching a hat trick in the first eight minutes of the game.

Swan, Jackson and Pigeon also scored in the win.

Jax Passeri (2), Conroy, Swan, Cade Enns, Thomas and Paddison helped setup the game’s tallies.

Saturday, Williams Lake beat Dawson Creek, 8-2, before its first meeting with Vanderhoof, an 8-6 victory in the T-wolves’ favour.
