The Nelson Pee Wee House Stingrays returned from the East Kootenay this past weekend wearing gold medals around their necks. The Stingrays ran a 5-0 record to capture the Cranbrook pee wee tournament. In the first game the Nelson club beat their Kootenay neighbour Castlegar Saints 6-0 on Friday afternoon. The locals followed that up with two straight wins on Saturday over the Kimberley Nitros (9-5) and Cranbrook Dodge (10-3). In the tournament semi-finals the Stingrays disposed of Creston 8-2 to set up a final game match-up with the Lethbridge Predators. Quin Hall paced Nelson by scoring three times, with Jaydon Wouters adding two of his own and Jayden Dyck chipping in with one. The 6-4 win gave the Nelson team their first tournament victory of the season. Next up for the Stingrays is the West Kootenay playoffs which begin Friday in Nakusp. Heading into the playoffs the Stingrays are ranked second while the Nelson Pee Wee House Leafs are ranked ninth.
