After finishing off the regular season as both League and Island champions, the Brown’s Bay Packing Atom A Tyees headed into last weekend’s tournament in Victoria at the top of their game.
The Tyees have a reputation as a strong , hardworking team, and they proved once again, that they take their reputation seriously. New Westminister found out just how determined the Tyees were to win, in the first game of the tournament, when they lost to the Tyees 8-3. The Tyee game MVP went to defenceman Dakota Sinclair.
The Comox Valley Chiefs were up next in game two, and although the Tyees put forth a great effort, the Chiefs would come out victorious with a final score of 6-4. The MVP for game two would go to defenceman Brendan Almer.
Coulsen McCartney would receive the game MVP for the third game of the tournament after Campbell River defeated Cochrane 9-4, in what was a great game both offensively and defensively for the Tyees.
The semi final game would have Cochrane facing off against the mighty Tyees once again, and once again the Tyees would come out with a strong 6-2 victory.
Defenceman Logan Chapdelaine received the game MVP, and the Tyees would head into the final to face off against Comox one last time. The Comox Chiefs would do their best to gain the upper hand, but the Tyees would prove to be to much for them, when they skated away with a 5-2 victory, proving once again that they are unstoppable.
Forward Jalen Price would receive the game MVP, and in what was a unanimous team decision, head coach Vince Devlin was awarded the tournament MVP for a season of hard work and devotion.
