As luck would have it math wasn’t on the Williams Lake Peewee Tier 2 Timberwolves side over the weekend.

The local hockey club was in Kamloops at the KMHA Tier 2 Peewee Tournament from Dec. 9-11.

After a strong round robin performance Williams Lake barely missed advancing to the semi-final. They were tied with Surrey, who they tied 5-5 in round robin play; however, due to Surrey scoring one more goal in the round robin than Williams Lake, Surrey moved on.

In game one Williams Lake slammed Chilliwack, 7-3. William Paynton had two goals and three assists, Daine Dubois had two goals and two assists and Cody Swan had two goals and one assist.

Next was the 5-5 tie against Surrey. Scoring for the Timberwolves were Trey Thomas with three goals, Dubois with one goal and Paynton with one goal and one assist.

Williams Lake then lost to Kamloops, 4-2 on Saturday morning. Kamloops scored an empty netter in the final seconds to win the game and remain undefeated in the tournament. Dubois scored both goals for the lakecity squad.

Later in the day Williams Lake beat Sylvan Lake, 7-1, to finish its round robin with a 2-1-1 record. Goal scorers included Thomas (3), Swan, Paynton, and Rylen Williamson. Tyler Tenning was a stand-out on defense, coaches said, and played a superb game.
