T-wolves drop heartbreaker in tier one tourney final

The Williams Lake Bantam Tier 2 Timberwolves marched away from a Prince George Tier 1 tournament on the weekend as silver medalists.

The Williams Lake Bantam Tier 2 Timberwolves marched away from a Prince George Tier 1 tournament on the weekend as silver medalists.

The T-wolves posted an impressive 4-0 record through round robin play, but were upended in a heartbreaking 3-2 loss Sunday to Quesnel.

Williams Lake controlled the play early, jumping out to a 2-0 lead and continuing to pepper Quesnel’s net continuously but couldn’t find the twine.

Quesnel then scored two to tie it — one off an odd bounce when the puck found the net after dropping in from 20 feet in the air after hitting a player. Williams Lake continued to push and had numerous chances to win but couldn’t light the lamp.

With just 48 seconds remaining Quesnel buried the game winner to take the gold.

Williams Lake’s perfect round robin began with an 8-5 drilling of the host Prince George Tier 1 Cougars, leading the entire way.

In the team’s second game Friday Williams Lake downed Fort St. John, 6-2, before holding on for a 4-2 win over Smithers Saturday morning.

In their second game Saturday Williams Lake beat Quesnel — the same team it played in the final — 4-3 in a physical battle that saw Williams Lake lose four players to injury.
