Players from a combined Quesnel and Williams Lake team banded together recently to bring home a silver medal from the Penticton Peach City Classic.
The U14 Storm, comprised of U14 players and three Quesnel and three Williams Lake U12 players, including the goalie, played four games at the tournament.
The team took on the Temple United Cobras, the Surrey Elite and Van United before being squared off again with Surrey Elite in the gold medal match.
There, they dropped a hard fought contest in a shootout to earn the silver medal.
“What a great group of players to come together for a tournament,” said Shannon Boomer, manager of the U14 Storm. “Great job by all, and especially to the goalie, Derek Rispin.”
Players on the team included assistant coach Sunny Basi, Dayton Smith-Hall, Jacob Maas, Wesley Fraser, Curtlen Paul, Karter Basi, Ethan Smith, coach Dave Herrling, Aidan Herrling, Ben Airey, Austin Monical, Pacey Boomer, Finley Enns, Ryan Arnold, Nick Wright and Derek Rispin.
