Lakecity midget players to suit up at Mac’s Tournament

The Cariboo Cougars and Williams Lake’s Colton Thomas and Chase Dubois improved to 8-7-1 on the campaign this weekend.

The Cariboo Cougars and Williams Lake’s Colton Thomas and Chase Dubois improved to 8-7-1 on the campaign this weekend, sweeping a series on home ice against the North Island Silvertips.

The victories leapfrogged the Cougars past the South Island Royals (7-7-2) into fourth place in the B.C. Major Midget League standings.

In Saturday’s win over the Silvertips Dubois, who’s now collected eight goals and five assists in 16 games this season, potted a hat trick to lead all scorers and help propel the Cougars to a 6-2 victory.

Sunday, the Cougars held the Silvertips to two goals again in a 5-2 win.

The Cougars now have six straight road games beginning with a two-game set this weekend in Kelowna against the league-leading Okanagan Rockets (13-2-1).

The team’s next home game is Dec. 14 at 4:15 p.m. at the CN Centre in Prince George against the Greater Vancouver Canadians (7-10-1).

Additionally, for the eighth straight year, the Cariboo Cougars have been invited to the Mac’s Midget AAA Tournament in Calgary, Alta.

The team said it hopes to build off last year’s best showing at the tournament to date where they made the quarterfinals but fell to the Czech Republic team Pirati Chumotov.

Williams Lake’s Tyler Povelofskie, now a member of the British Columbia Hockey League’s Vernon Vipers, represented the Cougars at last year’s tournament.

And Williams Lake’s Tessa Hare, Victoria Byer and Chantelle Beadman-Rolph will represent their club, the Northland Dodge Northern Female Cougars, at the tournament.

The Mac’s Midget Tournament begins Dec. 26 and stretches until Jan. 1.
