Timberwolves earn provincial berth

The Williams Lake Female Midget Timberwolves are on their way to the provincial championships.

The Williams Lake Female Midget Timberwolves are on their way to the provincial championships.

The team punched its ticket during the weekend after a two-game sweep of Prince George on home ice at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex in the Cariboo Amateur Hockey Association playoffs.

The T-wolves clawed to a 7-3 victory Friday evening, before sealing the deal Saturday in a 5-3 effort.

After the victory head coach Roy Call said the team now has its sights set on not just attending the provincials, but potentially bringing home a provincial championship.

“We have a chance to compete there,” Call said.

“And we have a chance to win there.”

Williams Lake will have to get past Kamloops, however, who is the No. 1 ranked team in the province.

“We gave them their only loss of the season — a 3-2 win in Williams Lake,” Call said.

“They beat us twice, we tied them, then we beat them.”

The team will also be looking to continue with its momentum following a victory at the Surrey SuperHeart Tournament where they knocked off the Orangeville Tigers of Ontario in the final two weekends ago.

“Skill wise we’re right there,” Call said. “Our biggest thing is to continue to work real hard these next six weeks.”

The BC Hockey Midget Female Championships take place in Kamloops from March 27-30 — a time, also, when the IIHF World Women’s Hockey Championships will be held in the Tournament Capital.

“It’s going to be a real exciting week,” Call said.

“We’ll take in some of those games — it’s going to be really awesome.”

During Friday’s contest Katya Levermann pounded Prince George’s goaltender with four goals, while Grace Outhouse, Faith Outhouse and Adriane Kennedy notched singles.

Saturday, Levermann lit the lamp another two times while her sister, Anya Levermann, also achieved the same feat. Caitlyn Ray tallied once in the 5-3 win.

The Timberwolves have been on a roll as of late and will look to stay sharp during their downtime before provincials, Call said.

“We’ll take two weekends off here and then come back for a tournament March 4-5 in Prince George and we hope to schedule some games later against some teams from the Coast,” he said.

“We’ve been on a real rip since Christmas. The girls have really improved their skills and I feel like we’re one of the better teams in the province.”
