The BC minor hockey provincial championships opened all over the province on Sunday with Greater Trail Minor Hockey Association (GTMHA) rep teams competing against the province’s best.

In West Vancouver, The GTMHA Pee Wee Tier 3 team opened their provincial tournament with an 8-7 win over Sooke before skating to a 5-5 tie with Kitimat on Monday. The Trail Pee Wees played the Vancouver Thunderbirds last night and face off against Whitehorse on Wednesday. A pair of Trail wins will guarantee a spot in the playoff round that begins Thursday and winds up with the final on Friday at 1:15 p.m.

In Salmon Arm, the Bantam Tier 2 GTMHA team picked up a point in its opening three matches, losing to Burnaby Winter Club 6-1 on Sunday, before tying Fort St. John, 3-3, on Monday morning. That evening, the tournament favourites Port Moody Panthers skated to a 7-1 drubbing of Trail and booked their ticket into the semifinal with a 3-0 record. Trail’s final match went Tuesday night against host Salmon Arm, but the score was unavailable at press time

The GTMHA Midget Tier 3 Smokies started off on the right skate, downing Coquitlam 2-1 in their opening match Monday with goals from Derek Green and Keenan Crossman. However, Trail couldn’t find the net against Whitehorse on Tuesday, dropping a 2-0 decision. The Trail Midgets played Alberni Valley Tuesday but the score was unavailable, and finish up against Whistler today.
