Williams Lake took a hard fought first place against a combination Vanderhoof/Fort St. James team in a rep hockey tournament hosted here in the Fort.

Teams from all over the central interior, including Williams Lake, Prince George and Quesnel, came to play at the tournament. The teams were remarkably well matched in strength, leading to more than a few games that had everyone watching the games on the edge of their seats.

The final game was tied 3-3 until the last 43 seconds of play, when a Williams Lake player managed to blast a slapshot past the Vanderhoof goalie to seal their win.

 

Williams Lake had just managed to squeeze into the finals with a win over Prince George that was tied down to the last few minutes, before Williams Lake pulled a couple of late period goals out to take the win and propel them to the finals, and then do the same over the boys from Vanderhoof and Fort St. James.
