The Nelson Bantam Leafs made it two straight tournament wins by capturing the title in Greater Trail last weekend. Eight teams competed from Greater Trail, Castlegar, Nelson, Kelowna, and West Kelowna.

The Leafs went undefeated with wins over Greater Trail #2 (6-2), Kelowna Avalanche (7-2), and the Kelowna Sharks (9-4). In the playoff round, Nelson met the West Kelowna Oil Kings in the semi-finals.

After regulation time, the two teams were deadlocked at 8-8. A five minute four-on-four overtime decided nothing. The game then went to a five-player shootout. Nelson was able to get two pucks by the West Kelowna goaltender and Nelson’s Josh Marsden stopped the four shots he faced to seal the victory.

In the championship game, Nelson played Greater Trail #2 again and skated to an 8-3 victory.
