Boston Pizza peewee female Lakers won the A final while competing in their first tournament of the year in Warburg during the weekend.

The Lakers started the tournament Saturday with a 9-6 victory over High Prairie. The second game was a hard fought battle seeing the Lakers defeated 7-4 to Grande Prairie. The team bounced back early Sunday morning with a tight checking 2-1 victory over Warburg Wolves to take top spot in the round robin and await their opponent for the final.

The final was a rematch from Sunday morning as the Lakers played the host Warburg Wolves.

The game kept the fans on the edge of their seats as the Lakers took the lead in the last two minutes of the game only to have Warburg tie it up seconds later. With 45 seconds left Sylvan was awarded a ‘hand on the puck in the crease’ penalty shot and was successful in scoring. A face-off win and a couple quick shifts of tight checking hockey sealed it as the Lakers came out victorious over Warburg with a final score of 3-2.

The Boston Pizza peewee female Lakers continue their season with another tournament this coming weekend. They’re in Calgary Nov. 21-24 to take part in the Wickenheiser Female World Hockey Festival. The tournament is hosted by five-time Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser and includes over 60 teams — some travelling from as far away as Mexico and Finland to be a part of this world-renowned event.
