Peewee T-wolves to host home tourney

The Williams Lake Peewee Rep Timberwolves host a six-team tournament at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

The Williams Lake Peewee Rep Timberwolves will look to keep its winning ways intact this weekend when they host a six-team tournament at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

The event, the Williams Lake Peewee Tier 2 Tournament, begins Friday with the Timberwolves taking on Smithers on rink one at 5 p.m.

Following that Williams Lake hits the ice Saturday morning at 10:15 a.m. against Kitimat, before playing an afternoon game against Prince George at 4 p.m.

A second team from Prince George and Quesnel round out the six-team draw, which will wrap up Sunday with playoffs.

Timberwolves head coach Owen Thomas said heading into the weekend he’s expecting good things from his club.

“It’s been going well so far [this season],” Thomas said.

“We’ve played about 15 games and we’ve got one loss.

“Our goal is to win the tournament.”

They’ll be in the dark, however, when they play their opener, as Thomas said the T-wolves have yet to see Kitimat or Smithers in action this season.

Thomas added the strength of this year’s squad relies on everyone pitching in.

“Our deal here is we play with three lines and six defencemen,” he said.

“It’s everyone’s role and we have a whole bunch of kids who work hard and I think that’s where our success has come from.”
