The Revelstoke Pee Wee team has placed third at  the provincial competition last week. They completed a terrific effort with a record of three wins, two ties and one loss.

The team competed hard and should be very proud of how they represented Revelstoke and the Okanagan.

The Pee Wees came out strong agains a Victoria team on Mar. 15, winning 13-0.

The team played two games on Mar. 16.

The first early morning game was versus the North Shore Winter Club.  This team had lost their first game the day before and were trying to stay alive. It was a tight game that ended with a 6-6 tie. The second game of the day was vs Prince George and our team took the game 6-1.

Revelstoke faced off against hosts Seafair on Mar. 17. They were undefeated at this point in the tournament and Revelstoke played a solid game for all three periods. The game ended in at 4-4. Luck wasn’t on the Pee Wees’ side; the game ended in a tie after a disputed goal-line call went against Revelstoke.

The Pee Wees played Elk Valley on Mar. 18. It was a battle. The boys knew they needed to win to capture a berth in the championship match. The boys remained strong and battled to the end. A disallowed again broke hearts. The boys lost their only game with a score of 4-3.

The Pee Wees faced Burns Lake in a Mar. 19 gold medal match. Revelstoke rallied to win 6-5.

It was a fantastic experience to be at provincials and compete so strongly at this level.

Thank you to everyone from Revelstoke who so generously supported our Pee Wee Team.  You can be proud of them!
