Whitehorse Mustangs win Revelstoke Bantam tournament

Whitehorse defeats Merritt in finals to take Revelstoke Bantam hockey tournament; Revelstoke team goes winless against strong competition.

Contributed by Revelstoke Minor Hockey

The Revelstoke Bantam Grizzlies hosted their annual tournament this past weekend. The eight team, tier 3-4 tournament resulted in some tough matches for our local tier four boys as they were pitted against some higher tier, much stronger competition.

The local boys battled against the tier three, Langley Eagles but let the game get away from them in the third period.

The boys gave the tier two Vernon Bantam Vipers two solid periods until the talented Vipers took control in the third.

Their final game was against their league rivals, the Kamloops Tomahawks, which was scoreless until the half way mark but the game was eventually won by Kamloops.

The difficult weekend was a learning experience and will be used to better the team as it presses forward in its 15 game season.

The Whitehorse Mustangs defeated the Merritt Centennials to capture the tournament championship and hoist the new History of Hockey Trophy, which was donated by Coopers Foods.
