All signs are pointing to strong seasons from Williams Lake rep hockey teams after playing successful icebreaker tournaments during the weekend.

Both the Williams Lake Bantam Tier 2 Timberwolves and the Williams Lake Bantam Female Timberwolves hosted icebreakers in the lakecity, while the Williams Lake Tier 2 Midget Timberwolves, the Williams Lake Midget Female Timberwolves and the Williams Lake Peewee Tier 2 Timberwolves travelled out of town.

The midget T-wolves wrapped up the weekend with three wins and one loss in Prince George.

Williams Lake opened the tournament with a 4-2 win over Prince George. Will Paynton, Cody Swan, Logan Clarke and Corey Loring scored for Williams Lake in the win.

In game two Williams Lake faced Vanderhoof and, despite peppering their goalie with more than 70 shots, only won the game by a 3-1 margin.

Swan, Spencer Neufeld and Lane Wycotte scored for the T-wolves.

In their third game Williams Lake downed Quesnel, 7-2. The game was tightly contested early but Williams Lake managed to pull away in the second and third periods using their skating, hitting and hustling to their advantage. Swan and Hare both potted a pair of goals with Loring, Berkelaar and Wycotte adding singles.

In their last game Williams Lake took on Prince George again and quickly fell behind 3-0 after a slow start. Williams Lake tied the game at 4-4 early in the third frame before running out of gas and getting into penalty trouble. Prince George went on to win 7-4.

Scoring for the lakecity were Owen Powers, Paynton, Loring and Brett Hare.

Back in Williams Lake, the bantam T-wolves finished with a perfect 3-0 weekend.

Raeyden Beauchamp, Sebastian Gracia, Grady Thomas, Lane Paddison, Tyson Conroy and Brendan Pigeon each lit the limp in the team’s opener as they edged Prince George, 6-5.

The T-wolves then hammered Quesnel, 5-2, with two markers from Paddison and singles from Brody Conroy, Tristan Takats and Thomas, before clobbering Vanderhoof 8-2.

Tanner Hooper and Thomas each found the twine twice, while Jace Myers, Sam Powers, Paddison and Beauchamp each tallied once.

In other out of town results, the midget female Timberwolves picked up three wins over Prince George, while the peewee tier 2 T-wolves fell 4-0 in Quesnel.

The WL midget T-wolves now head to Salmon Arm for a tournament Oct. 9-11, while the bantam T-wolves, the peewee T-wolves and the midget female T-wolves each have games this coming weekend.
