Bantam A boys defeated Victoria Ice Hawks for the gold.

Bantam A boys get gold

The Bantam A team’s latest win is one of three for the year

Sooke’s Bantam A team wins gold again.

Sooke’s Bantam A team was in Abbotsford on on March 22-25 in the Bantam Western Classic.

Sooke saw the host team first, after a two week game layoff. Our boys got off to a slow start, but got their game play  back in the third period, defeating the Abbotsford Hawks 5-2.

Sooke next saw the Tri Port Eagles. Our boys don’t play good hockey on morning ice and it showed, when they were down 6-3 going into the third period. After finally waking up, they rallied three goals in the last 10 minutes for the tie.

Saturday saw two games that day. Sooke now in game form met Williams Lake for the first time. As the Zamboni cleared the ice, Sooke had a 7-0 win.

Later in the evening they met Nanaimo — this was a high penalty game for Nanaimo  and Sooke capitalized — putting Nanaimo away 8-1.

The final tally in Round Robin saw Sooke and the Victoria Ice Hawks pull well away in points from the rest. Sooke and Victoria met in a Round Robin game that meant nothing to see who was going to the finals.

A morning game saw sleepy Sooke players, who were clearly not awake, lose 9-1.

They are not a morning team.

The two teams met up in the afternoon to settle the score and in a fast-paced, physical game, Sooke pulled ahead late in the third to win Bantam Gold, 5-4 over Victoria.

This is the third tournament this year they have won.
