In its best weekend of hockey of the season so far, the Williams Lake Peewee Timberwolves rattled off a bronze medal at its home tournament Sunday.
Williams Lake finished second in the six-team round robin after games Friday and Saturday, slotting them into the semifinal against Prince George for a chance to play in the tournament championship.
There, a number of costly penalties allowed Prince George to extend a lead the Timberwolves weren’t able to overcome. Williams Lake’s Dylan Telford scored the lone goal for the Timberwolves in a 7-1 loss.
During round robin play Williams Lake opened its tournament with a 7-2 drubbing of Vanderhoof with two goals from Owen Kritz and singles from Jaxen Carson, Max Sanford, Nick Wright and Ty Oviatt.
On Saturday Williams Lake’s Telford and Evan Pigeon found the twine in a 6-2 loss to Kamloops, before rebounding with a 5-1 victory over Smithers.
Wright notched a hat trick and Max Sanford and Telford scored in the win for the Timberwolves.
With the semifinal win over Williams Lake, Prince George squared off with Kamloops in the tournament final where Prince George emerged with the gold medal in a 4-3 win.
Peewee T-wolves manager Braden Kika thanked everyone who came out to support the Timberwolves during the weekend and the countless volunteers who helped pull it all together.
“[It was] a well played and successful tournament,” she said.
