Revelstoke's Tier 4 Peewee hockey team travelled to West Kelowna to compete in the Westside Warriors' Tier 3 hockey tournament from Dec. 28-30. The 13 boys who attended the tournament gave the other teams a taste of Revelstoke hockey and were a dominant force to be reckoned with. The all-around team effort saw every skater score at least one goal over the five games in the tournament.

Game one of the tournament saw goaltender Noah Newsome backstop the team to an 8-5 victory over their league rivals the North Okanagan Knights. Player of the game honours went to Ben MacDonald for his hat trick and hustler of the game went to Harrison Fenwick. In game two Revelstoke pounded the Summerland Jets 9-0, with player of the game honours going to Raymond Speerbrecker and hustler of the game to Jake Leeder.

To close out round-robin play, the Peewee Grizzlies defeated the host Westside Warriors 10-3, with player of the game honours going to Jeremy Scarcella and hustler of the game to William MacDonald.

The first place ranking earned the Grizzlies a return match-up with the Summerland Jets, who the Grizzlies defeated 14-3 on Sunday morning. Player of the game honours went to Nic Sakiyama (hat trick) with hustler of the game to Rylan Bokis. The win set up a re-match in the final with the North Okanagan Knights.

Defenseman Tyson Marsh set the tone for the final match, scoring with a shot from the point 30 seconds into the first period. Goaltender Spencer Spannier then shut the door on the Knights as the Revelstoke Grizzlies cruised to a 7-1 win to take the tournament crown. Matt Cadden earned player of the game, with hustler of the game going to Rory Christie-Hoyle.

The boys only have a couple days to savor the victory as they will be challenging themselves in the Salmon Arm tier 3 Pee-wee tournament from Jan. 4-6.
