The weekend of Dec. 13 and 14 was very exciting for the Peewee A Lakers hockey team as they spent time together and earned first place at a tournament in Golden, B.C.

Early in the morning on Dec. 13, the Lakers met the host Golden Rockets. Colby Knight recorded a shutout in the 6-0 win, while Chase Bergstrom was named player of the game with his solid defensive play. There were also solid efforts from forwards Jordan Karcha and Miles Lagoutte.

In the second game of the day, the Lakers tested their skill against the Cranbrook Kings and recorded the second win of the day with a score of 8-5. Aiden Sigfusson was able to connect with Jordan Coady for the first two goals and then follow with a total of four assists in the win, earning him the player of the game. Reese Brigley added a goal late in the game and Kaje Hubley put in a solid defensive effort.

On Dec. 14, the Lakers met the Golden Rockets again — this time Brennan Murphy recorded the 10-2 win. Aden Michael scored early in the game to help get things rolling. Renn (Clements) Bryck and Justin Gyori showed great teamwork all weekend, earning Renn the player of the game.

The gold medal game was played against the Cranbrook Kings. The Lakers put up a hardfought final with a 6-2 win. Ashton Fonda put in a solid game, playing both defence and forward. Forward Tyler Tallon and defenceman Kyeran Nystrom had solid performances all weekend. Defenceman Blaine Bertram was awarded player of the game in the championship game.

Every player worked hard over the weekend and was proud to bring the trophy home.
