The players battled hard and were in every game heading into the final frame. Players , Coaches and team officials conducted themselves in a very professional manner throughout the tournament and are to be commended.

Midget Road to the BC Championships

The Midget T2 Braves ended their successful season with a trip to the Midget T2 Championships in Penticton, BC.

Four days of very fast, tightly contested games found the Braves finishing 2nd overall in their pool advancing them to a semi-final against Vancouver in the morning of the last day. This game went to double OT with Vancouver scoring at 16:48 to take the win. The ironic part about that 16:48 time is that it is the same time to the second that was on the clock when the Braves scored the winning goal in double OT in the last game of the Island Championship series against Peninsula. Weird!

Vancouver went on to the Gold medal game and won 2-1 in OT over Kelowna (who the Braves tied 1-1 in round robin play).

So with great coaching from Ian Birnie, Ross Birnie, Al Chester and Gerry Hohl, the Braves season ends going 33-10-7 in 51 games. They are the first SMHA Midget T2 team to win an Island Championship banner to hang in Pearkes arena.

Well done TEAM!
