Fierce competition in Campbell River Bantam hockey tournament

Last weekend the Campbell River Recreational Bantam Hockey tournament took place at Strathcona Gardens.

A total of 10 teams participated in the event for a total of 170 mixed boys and girls. Five local Campbell River teams participated: the Bears, Wolverines, Rangers, Chiefs and the Midget Hurricanes (female only team).

Visiting teams came from Saanich, Comox, Aldergrove, Nanaimo and Oceanside to battle for a medal placing in the tournament.

After a very close finish, where eight out of 10 teams were head to head with the last two games determining who was going to participate in the final matches, the medals were fought for by four out of five Campbell River teams.

The Rangers went undefeated throughout the round robin putting them in the gold medal match against the Wolves who took second place in the round robin.

The Wolves were tied with the Bears but they took second place with less goals against going on to the gold medal match with the Bears playing for bronze against the Chiefs.

The Wolves took the gold medal with a 3-1 win over the Rangers in an entertaining well fought battle, and the Bears defeated the Chiefs 8-1 to take 3rd place.
