The Revelstoke Minor Hockey Pee Wee Rep Team is going to the B.C. provincial championships.

The team has won the OMAHA (Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association) Pee Wee Tier 4 playoff series winning a berth at the Provincial Championships in Richmond March 15-19.

After a regular season in which they landed third in the division standings, the Revelstoke team went into playoffs and took Chase best two of three games.

They moved on to play Kelowna in the semi-finals and swept them in two games. The team remained focused and under their head coach Stephen Bull they only gained momentum.

The team went on to play in the finals against North Okanagan, the top ranked team in the division who were undefeated all season.

After two great games where our team played hard and determined hockey, they swept the title from under North Okanagan’s skates in a 7-6 win in Enderby last weekend and a 10-5 home ice victory on March 1.  The support from the fans in the stands on Saturday was tremendous and the team will take this memory onward as they head to Richmond.

The team demonstrated that with teamwork and the will to win great things can happen!
