Pee Wee Tier 2 hockey championship down to two teams

The West Kelowna Warriors and Burnaby Winter Kings meet in the Tier 2 Pee Wee provincial final Wednesday night.

The Pee Wee Tier 2 provincial championships wrapped up round-robin play on Tuesday, and sent the top-four teams in the province into the playoffs.

Vancouver skated to a 12-3 victory over Greater Trail Pee Wee Smoke Eaters to secure a berth in the semifinal on Wednesday with a 3-1-0 record. In the other late match, the Fort St. John Flyers shocked the previously undefeated West Kelowna Warriors 3-2 but just missed a spot in the playoff round with a 2-1-1 record.

The Vancouver Team played the undefeated Burnaby Winter Kings in the semifinal Wednesday morning, and Burnaby, who outscored its opponents 30-0 in the three-game round robin, went on to defeat Vancouver 6-1.

In the other semifinal, the 3-1-0 Warriors took on the 2-1-0 West Kootenay Rapids, a Nelson team. The back-and-forth game saw the match tied at 2-2 heading into the third period with Bryce Sookro scoring on a penalty shot and Dakota Fizzard tallying one with 4:29 to play in the opening period to tie it.

The Warriors’ Tristan Weill scored 94 seconds into the third to give West K a 3-2 lead but the Rapids came right back and Ethan Bennett made it 3-3 at 15:23. However, penalties eventually hurt the Rapids as the Warriors Nathan Gossoo scored on the power play at 12:38 to take a 4-3 lead, and West Kelowna iced it in the dying minutes with another power-play tally from Parker Konneke for a 5-3 victory.

The bronze medal game between West Kootenay and Vancouver was played Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. and the gold medal final between West Kelowna and Burnaby at 7:15 p.m. Scores were unavailable at press time.
