BC Hockey Championships ‘a success’ in 100 Mile

Coach hopes players remember provincial tourney experience

The local team wasn’t out there, but hockey fans in 100 Mile House were at the rink anyway.

A high intensity matchup between the province’s top 2 Tier 3 Midget teams – Terrace and Alberni Valley – capped off the BC Hockey Championships at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre on March 21.

Alberni Valley, last year’s champs, netted one first. However, Terrace fired back – and then some – on its way to a 4-1 victory and a provincial title.

All around, the tournament, which started on March 16, was a success, says Sandy Craig, one of the organizers.

We had a great group of volunteers who devoted their time, and without them, the championships would not have gone as professionally and as smoothly as it did.”

Craig adds she received a lot of positive feedback from parents, coaches, managers, players, officials and BC Hockey representatives.

100 Mile House and the surrounding area was recognized as being an incredible host community with very gracious and friendly service. Many people mentioned they had never been to the Cariboo before, and did not realize the beauty it had to offer.”

Milers coach Scott Cross says there was some excellent hockey played in town.

I think most of our bunch was happy with the way they played, as they should be,” he says of the local Midget rep team, sponsored by Mayvin Plumbing & Heating.

We have a great hard-working bunch with a good attitude. Some teams and players never get to experience provincials, so I hope it is something they will remember for a long time”
