Sooke Peewee hockey takes gold

After much hand-wringing from the audience, and after a hard-fought game on the ice, Sooke's Peewee A team takes the gold.

On the weekend of January 3 to 5, Sooke’s Peewees participated in the Comox Tier 2 Christmas Tournament. The Sooke Peewee A team won three out of four games in a round robin tournament, which earned them a bye into the final game.

In this final game, the Sooke Peewees faced off against the Oceanside Peewee team for the second time in the tournament. By the end of the third period, the game was tied, 3 all.

Going into overtime, the Sooke team took some penalties and spent most of the overtime period short handed.

The dead heat continued: there were no goals scored in the overtime period so the game advanced to a shoot out.  Sooke goalie Nick Haisel was outstanding in net and met each Oceanside player with calm focus despite the fans of both teams going crazy in the stands.

The intensity continued. After seven rounds of shoot out, there was still no winning goal.

Finally, Sooke defence man Craig Phipps managed to squeeze one past the Oceanside goalie resulting in a gold medal win for the Sooke team.

The boys fought hard for the win, wanting to earn gold medals for their teammate Brayden Friesen who was celebrating his 13th birthday.

Happy birthday Brayden, and a great, hard-fought victory for the entire Sooke Peewee A team.
