Sooke peewees battle

The Sooke Peewee C Minor Team played its best game of the year March 12 at Lake Cowichan. A number of the parents commented that it was one of the most exciting games they had seen.  The C minor boys finished fourth in the division and were up against the undefeated Victoria Ice Hawks who went 11-0 all year and had 10 goals scored on them the entire year. 

The Sooke peewee’s were pumped up coming into the game coming off wins against Saanich and Juan de Fuca. The first period was a seesaw battle with the team being down 4-1.  Coming out in the second period the boys got a couple of goals to get within one then Victoria pulled away 5-3 and by ice-clean time the score was 6-5. Back and forth action continued into the third frame, being tied at 6 and 7… then tied at nine by the end of regulation.  

Sooke had an early chance in OT but it was Victoria that potted the winner.

The game was a character-builder for the boys as they came together as a unit to play their hearts out. The boys can hold their heads high after a great year. Special thanks to all the coaches: Craig, Jerry, Lyle, Kevin and great team managers and volunteers.

Next up from March 24-27 is Sooke’s Spring Breakaway peewee tournament and Sookies are invited for great raffle prizes, chuck-a-duck, a coffee, a visit by Marty the Marmot, photos and and some competitive hockey.
