Nine teams gave it their all during the weekend when the Williams Lake Minor Hockey Association hosted its annual Peewee House Tournament.

Tammy Watson, the peewee house co-ordinator with the WLMHA, said for an early tournament and facing some tough, out-of-town competition, Williams Lake teams showed great heart and resilience.

“We’ve only been playing a couple weeks but I think the kids have really improved a lot already,” Watson said.

“A lot of fun was had by all, and our out of town teams were all great.”
