Nelson Minor Hockey hosted the Bantam House tournament this past weekend with nine teams from the West Kootenay and Okanagan taking part.

After round robin play, two Nelson and two Greater Trail teams rose to the top for the Sunday morning semi-finals. In the first semi-final, the Nelson Penguins took on the Nelson Bantam Leafs.
