Pee Wee AA Smokies poised for tourney

There is no better way to follow up last Saturday’s Minor Hockey Day in Trail then with a hockey tournament this weekend.

The Cominco Arena will be abuzz for the second weekend in a row as the Greater Trail Pee Wee Tier 2 Smoke Eaters get set to host their annual tournament this weekend.

There is no better way to follow up last Saturday’s Minor Hockey Day in Trail then with a hockey tournament.

This weekend the GTMHA AA Pee Wees will host seven teams from Campbell River, Spokane, Salmon Arm, Winfield, West Kelowna, Penticton, and Kelowna for a round robin that culminates in a playoff and final on Sunday.

The Pee Wee AA Smokies hold down sixth place in the Okanagan Mainline Hockey Association, with a 3-7-1 record this season. Kelowna is in top spot going undefeated with a perfect 11-0-0 record on the season, but with home ice advantage and hometown support the team is hoping to make a statement in the tournament on the weekend.

The AA Smokies begin their tournament with a tilt against Campbell River at 5:15 p.m. Friday, and on Saturday at 8 a.m. versus Salmon Arm, and again at 2:45 p.m. when they take on Winfield.

The playoffs begin with the semifinal matches starting at 7:30 a.m. Sunday at the Cominco Arena and at 8 a.m. at the Beaver Valley Arena. The final goes at noon at the Cominco Arena.
