Wildcats win gold
The West Kootenay Pee Wee Wildcats female hockey team (based out of Trail) came out on top at the Surrey Superheart Tournament this past Feb 2-8 in Surrey.
The tournament is the biggest female event hosting 43 teams (novice to midget). The Wildcats entered the Tier 2 Pee Wee division going up against Langley, South Delta, Tri-Cities, and Meadow Ridge. Round Robin play went 3-0-1. The tie was against Langley, who the Wildcats would end up facing in the finals.
The Final game was full of excitement – the score was 1-1 at the end of the 1st period and remained so until the end of regulation time which resulted in the game going to five minutes 4-on-4 OT and then a shootout. Play went all the way to four shooters before Megan Gorman from Grand Forks would score the winner! Kayda Lohrer would get three shutouts and only three goals against her in the whole tournament. The team is gearing up for league playoffs in Spokane March 6-8th.
