The bantam tier two Williams Lake Timberwolves capped off a perfect weekend downing Fort St. John, 7-5, in the finals of the Prince George Bantam Hockey Tournament.
The Wolves took the lead in the first minute of the game and never looked back, pressuring the Fort St. John squad and piling up scoring chances throughout the entire game while managing to stay out of the penalty box.
Hayden Lyons was solid between the pipes for the Wolves, picking up the win in the finals. Lyons made several key saves to keep the team rolling earning his fifth straight win in the tournament.
Prior to the final the Wolves were largely dominant. Williams Lake opened their tournament with a 11-1 drubbing of Terrace, before skating to a 7-1 win over Salmon Arm Friday.
Saturday, Williams Lake completed their perfect round robin record with a 3-0 win over Fort St. John to advance the team to the semifinal against Quesnel. There, Daine Dubois netted a hat trick with William Paynton chipping in three points (1-2-3) in the contest to lead the Wolves. Lyons, again, picked up the win in net for Williams Lake.
The tournament victory was the first of the year for the Wolves after a string of second-place finishes. And heading into league playoffs in three weeks the win bodes well for the team.
Most valuable player awards in the tournament went to Cody Swan, Paynton, Dubois and Corey Loring.
