Grey Fox are this year’s Williams Lake Recreational Hockey League champions.

The team proved too much for the runner up, Dog Creek, after a 9-2 win in the playoff final held Thursday, March 26, at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

Third place went to O-Netrix, who defeated Pioneer 6-4 on Wednesday.

In the ‘B’ division Buffalo Creek secured the title after downing Firemen, 6-2, on Friday.

Sight & Sound captured third place in an 8-4 win over James Western Star.

Tim Lloyd, WLRHL executive member, said it was a great season for the league.

After many, many years of dedicated work to keep the league going, the 2014/15 season saw past president Bruce Mack step down. Steve O’Hara took over as new president, and was assisted by Mark Chestnut, Bryan Garfield and Lloyd.

A new website sponsored by O-Netrix was setup, and year-end trophies for the league’s ‘A’ and ‘B’ champions were created, as well as for leading scorer, top defenceman and top goaltender.

Those awards went to Lee Williston (O-Netrix, 71 points), Rob Gill (Grey Fox, 45 points) and Duncan Peeman (Grey Fox, 2.0 goals-against average and two shutouts), respectively.

“We would like to thank all the local businesses and organizations that stepped up to sponsor teams,” Lloyd said.

“We look forward to welcoming new players and teams for the 2015/16 season.”
