Williams Lake’s Chantelle Beadman-Rolph and Matthew Brenner are taking a crack at a National Aboriginal Hockey Championship.

Beadman-Rolph, a defenceman with Team B.C., began play Tuesday morning in Kahnawake, Que. against Team Alberta at the tournament, featuring players born between 1993 and 1999.

Brenner (photo below, left) — a goaltender for Team B.C. — also started his tournament Tuesday morning against Saskatchewan. Team B.C. stormed to a 5-3 win over Saskatchewan — handing the prairie province it’s first loss at the tournament in five years.

Brenner attends Columneetza Secondary School and spent last season with the Williams Lake Midget Tier 2 Timberwolves — earning his spot on the Team B.C. as one of about 80 players who tried out at the selection camp.

Beadman-Rolph, who attended school at Columneetza secondary up until this season, climbed up the ranks of the Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association to earn a spot with the Prince George Major Midget Female Northern Cougars.

Team B.C. follows up its game with Team Alberta at the NAHC Tuesday at 4:15 p.m. against Manitoba.

Wednesday, Beadman-Rolph and Team B.C. battle the Eastern Door and North to close out its round robin portion of the tournament. Playoff matchups begin Thursday.

Brenner and his squad follow up their Tuesday morning contest with a game against the Eastern Door and North Wednesday at 11 a.m., before meeting Team North later that afternoon at 4:30 p.m. prior to playoffs.

This year’s NAHC began April 27 and finishes May 4 with finals.
