The Greater Trail Tier 2 Bantam Smoke Eaters opened their Bantam Tier 2 provincial championship with an exciting 6-5 win over the Campbell River Tyees in Cranbrook on Sunday.

The Tyees jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but Trail answered with two quick goals early in the second period to tie it. The teams traded a pair of goals and went into the third tied 4-4. Jalen Price made it 5-4 for Campbell River two minutes into the final frame, but Brad Ross would tie it for Trail with seven minutes remaining and net the winner three minutes later for the hat trick. The Tyee would throw everything they had at the Smoke Eater net but goalie Josh Ballarin shut the door.

The West Kootenay Female Bantam Wildcats dropped their first game to Surrey on Sunday 3-1, before bouncing back with a 10-0 drubbing of Williams Lake. The Wildcats also played on Monday at 6 p.m. against the Richmond Ravens but scores were unavailable.
