Midget T-wolves have successful weekend

It was a successful home-ice weekend for the Williams Lake Midget Rep Timberwolves.

It was a successful home-ice weekend for the Williams Lake Midget Rep Timberwolves who took three out of a possible four points in two league games against the Prince George Midget Cougars.

Coming off a rough previous tournament and a recent 5-0 loss to Prince George the T-wolves were looking for some redemption at home and came out flying in the first game in a 5-1 outing.

The T-wolves fell behind 1-0 early but kept pressuring the Cougars throughout the game, which eventually paid off.

The line of Will Paynton, Lane Wycotte and Owen Powers were dominant combining for 10 points. Paynton had two goals and two assists, Wycotte added a goal and two assists and Powers potted a goal and two assists. Josh Novakowski added the other marker for the T-wolves.

Trevor Woodward was in net for the win.

In game two Williams Lake trailed most of the game but managed to gut out a 4-4 tie. The T-wolves pulled ahead, 4-3, with nine minutes remaining but surrendered the tying goal with three minutes on the clock.

Mitch Labossiere, Powers, Wycotte and Novakowski added tallies for the T-wolves, while Hayden Lyons settled for the tie in between the pipes.

Also playing at home during the weekend were the Williams Lake Bantam Rep Timberwolves, who lost one and tied one against Prince George.

Scoring in game one’s 5-3 defeat for Williams Lake were Andy Berkelaar, Denzel Jackson and Jimi Belleau, while Dawson Billyboy and Brody Conroy collected assists.

In game two Sunday Lane Paddison and Jackson lit the lamp, while Grady Thomas added two assists, to tie Prince George, 2-2.

Coming up this weekend is the Williams Lake Minor Hockey Midget Rep Tournament.

Williams Lake opens its tournament Friday night at 7:15 p.m. against Smithers, before taking on North Delta at 10 a.m., then Kamloops at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Playoffs begin Sunday morning at 6:15 a.m.
