Smoke Eaters defeat Centennials on Hockey Day in Trail

Greater Trail celebrated its 63rd Hockey Day in Trail on Saturday with a historic line up.

A crowd of over 2,200 fans helped the Trail Smoke Eaters cap off a full day of activities with an exciting 4-3 victory over the Merritt Centennials.

The win, however, was the only one for the home teams, as the Kimberley Dynamiters skated to a 1-0 overtime victory over the Beaver Valley Nitehawks and the Kootenay Ice fell to the Greater Vancouver Canadians 5-4.

Greater Trail Minor Hockey kicked off the day with Junior and Senior Novice games and an Atom Jamboree, while the Tim Horton’s crew entertained crowds between periods.
