The Williams Lake Bantam Rep Timberwolves finished a tournament in Salmon Arm over the weekend with a three-win, one-loss record.
The T-wolves defeated Quesnel, 6-3, in the consolation final Sunday to wrap up its tournament.
Dylan Derose posted the win in goal for Williams Lake, with William Paynton leading all scorers with four points (3-1-4). Corey Loring (1-1-2), Dylen McNeill (0-2-2) also chipped in.
Williams Lake was in a four-way tie for first place after the round robin but failed to advance to the semifinals after a mathematical tie-breaker was used. One more goal for, or one less against, during the three round-robin games would have advanced the T-wolves to the semifinal.
The lakecity squad opened its tournament against West Kelowna with a 3-2 win. Hayden Lyons picked up the win in goal, while Paynton (0-3-3), Daine Dubois (2-0-2), McNeill (1-0-0) and Cody Swan (0-0-2) provided Williams Lake’s scoring.
Williams Lake later beat Salmon Arm, 4-2, before dropping a hard-fought battle to Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence, 6-4, leaving them on the outside looking in of Sunday’s semifinal.
