Pee Wees Storm Merritt

The Nelson Pee Wee Rep squad brought home the trophy from a tournament in Merritt late last month.

The Nelson Pee Wee Rep squad brought home the trophy from a tournament in Merritt late last month. The locals got off to a rough start by losing the first game of the tournament to host Merritt 7-2. The pee wees rebounded with a pair of wins against Chilliwack and Coquitlam to finish the round robin with a 2-1 record that was good enough to get the team into the semi-finals. Nelson beat Cloverdale to advance to finals against a Kelowna team that was undefeated so far this season, never having won a game with less than a five goal spread. Fuelled by stellar goaltending by Curt Doyle, Nelson battled to a 3-3 tie after regulation time. With overtime solving nothing, the game went to shootout where Nelson’s Angus Paterson ended up with the winning goal.
