Houston’s Midget team played against Vanderhoof’s for the final game of the Omineca League Midget tournament in Fort St. James on Nov. 23 and 24.

The final game on Sunday, had begun to look like a foregone conclusion by the second period, as Vanderhoof had scored three goals and shut out Houston at that point.

But Houston rallied in the third, coming back with three goals early in the third period to tie it back up.

A fourth goal with just over five minutes to go pulled them ahead, but Vanderhoof managed to get one in with 3:35 left to tie it back up and force the game into overtime.

Vanderhoof won the game with a goal at 3:45 in overtime by Eric Silver, giving Silver a hat trick.

Jimmy Silver and Nicholas Silver also scored for Vanderhoof.
