The Williams Lake Peewee Timberwolves were victorious at their home tournament this past weekend

Peewee Timberwolves go unbeaten

The Williams Lake Peewee Timberwolves stunned the Prince George Peewee Cougars in the final of its home tournament, 4-2.

The Williams Lake Peewee Timberwolves battled through a slew of early penalty trouble at its home tournament Sunday to stun the Prince George Peewee Cougars in the final, 4-2.

Trailing for more than half the contest after Prince George’s Jovhan Janjua lit the lamp on Williams Lake goaltender Devin Chapman near the 10-minute mark of the first period, Williams Lake answered back after amassing 14 minutes of penalties in the first period alone.

T-wolves assistant captain Brendan Pigeon opened the flood gates and evened up the score for Williams Lake at 10:46 of the second frame, before Tyson Conroy found the twine to put his squad up by one.

Prince George, however, wasn’t finished yet as Brennan Bott, with 14:42 remaining in the third period, tied it up once more.

With time winding down Williams Lake’s Jacob Jackson pounced on a puck in front of the Prince George goalkeeper during a goal-mouth scramble to notch what would hold up as the game winner. Assisting on the winning goal were Cade Enns and Jaxon Passeri. Pigeon added his second marker late in the period to ice the contest for Williams Lake.

“That we were able to battle back was awesome,” said Timberwolves head coach Owen Thomas. “Things were not going our way for the first half of the game, but the boys stuck with it.

“We were able to get the big goal and the big save [when we needed it] and overall we played very well all weekend.”

Williams Lake and Prince George were joined in the tournament, hosted at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex, by Kitimat, Quesnel, Smithers and Prince George Tier 3.

Williams Lake exited the round robin portion Saturday posting a perfect three-win, no-loss record. Williams Lake beat Smithers in its opener Friday, 8-0, before downing Kitimat on Saturday, 7-2. The T-wolves last game of the round robin saw them beat Prince George Tier 3, 8-0.

The lakecity squad then met Kitimat again in Sunday morning’s semifinal, winning 12-2.

Third place in the tournament went to the Quesnel Thunder after they defeated Prince George Tier 3, 6-3.
