Bantam win first game of the season

Tourney hosted in 100 Mile House

By Kyra Hopson

100 Mile Bantam Rep Wranglers hosted a tournament this past weekend and got their first win of the season! In their first game against the Winfield Bruins both teams were working hard and at the end of the first, it was tied 0-0. Then Kyson Hopson found the back of the net with an assist from Aidan Moore and Colby Glen. The Bruins struck back to tie it up to end the second. Then Hopson got a quick goal with an assist from Hannah Duff. The teams continued to battle and Cole Allan was able to seal his team’s fate with a goal and assists going to Hopson and Aidan Moore. The Wranglers got their first win with goaltender Ryan Chamberlain between the pipes. MVP went to Cole Allan.

The Wranglers were then facing the Whistler Winterhawks. The game started off in 100 Mile’s favour when winger Alex Kuyek scored the first goal with an assist from Aidan Moore. Then defenceman Cole Allan shot a rocket at the goalie to score the Wranglers second and last goal. Goalie Joey Isaac was busy in net as the 100 Mile team played short-handed most of the game due to high penalty minutes. Whistler Winterhawks won 10-2. MVP went to Kyson Hopson.

In their third game, the 100 Mile Wranglers were playing the Smithers Storm. Smithers got on the scoreboard first with a goal halfway through the first period. Into the second period, 100 Mile continued to play a very physical game and held off the Storm. Goalie Ryan Chamberlain was solid in net and made some amazing saves. The 100 Mile squad could only get 13 shots off on the Smithers goalie and could not get one by him. The game ended in the Storms favour 4-0. MVP went to Mary Isaac.

Sunday saw the 100 Mile Wranglers Playing in the bronze medal game against the Winfield Bruins. To end the first it was tied 1-1, with Colby Glen scoring for the Wranglers with an assist from Colton Huber Hopkins and Brayden Meyers Brundage. Winfield got one and then Brundage let a slap shot go to score. With a heads-up pass from Virgil Kennedy, Brundage got another goal. Then with an assist from goalie Joey Isaac, Brundage skated end to end to get a hat-trick. With an assist from Kennedy and Moore, Hopkins then shot one by the Bruins goalie to bring the Wranglers within two goals. The 100 Mile team continued to battle and J. Isaac continued to work hard at keeping the puck out of the net. The Wranglers lost 7-5.

Overall, it was a great weekend of fast-moving, hard-hitting, entertaining hockey.
