The Williams Lake Midget Men’s Timberwolves were in Quesnel for an eight-team tournament last weekend and skated away with a silver medal, losing in a shootout to Prince George after the game finished in a 4-4 tie.
These were the first games of the year for the team since final cuts were made and the four-week layoff was evident in the first game of the tournament when they dropped a 4-1 decision to Terrace.
In the second game the team started to gel and showed flashes of great play winning 4-2 over Chetwynd.
In the third game the team played a much tougher Prince Rupert team and pulled out a 5-2 victory to finish the round robin with two wins and one loss, good for second in their pool.
In the cross over semi-final game the Timberwolves played the first-place team from the A pool, Quesnel, and skated away with a 5-2 win in a very solid effort.
Williams Lake scored early and the game was never in doubt.
The T-wolves then met Prince George in the final.
Williams Lake fell behind early and despite great play trailed 4-2 with two minutes left. Williams Lake scored at the two minute mark and then again with 30 seconds left to tie the game and send it into overtime.
After five minutes of four-on-four overtime the game went to the dreaded shootout where Prince George prevailed scoring once in three attempts while Williams Lake was unable to score.
Next up for the Williams Lake Midget Timberwolves are league games this Friday and Saturday against Quesnel, in Quesnel.
