The Williams Lake Midget Timberwolves were in tough at an eight-team tournament in Prince George during the weekend.

The team came away with one win, three losses and a tie.

Williams Lake started the tournament strong, skating away with a 7-5 high-scoring victory versus Smithers.

Cody Swan led the way for the T-wolves with four points (1G, 3A), while Mitch Labossiere notched three points (2G, 1A) and Corey Loring, Brett Hare, Owen Powers and Riley Haines also scored for Williams Lake.

In their second game Williams Lake faced a tough Terrace team and ended up on the wrong side of a 5-3 score.

Labossiere, Loring and Nick Berkelaar lit the lamp for the T-wolves.

Williams Lake then entered their third and final round robin game needing a win or tie versus Quesnel to advance to the tournament semifinal.

Goals from Loring and Braeden Boyd helped Williams Lake to a 2-2 tie in the contest. With the tie the team advanced to the semifinal to face Prince George, who finished first in their pool.

Following a 2-2 tie after regulation with two late goals by Loring, Prince George needed a shootout to eliminate Williams Lake from the tournament with a 3-2 win.

Williams Lake then fell 4-2 to Terrace in their last game with goals from Labossiere and Loring.

Next up for the Timberwolves are three league games this weekend.
