Midget reps off to provincials

The Prince Rupert Midget Rep Seawolves will be playing at the 2016 B.C. Tier 4 Provincial Championships.

The Prince Rupert Midget Rep Seawolves will be playing at the 2016 B.C. Tier 4 Provincial Championships.

The athletes opened their Northwest District Zones tournament last weekend with a tough loss to Burns Lake 2-1.

However they bounced back with a 6-2 win against Fraser Lake in Game Two, then took a 4-2 victory over Vanderhoof.

The Seawolves finished up with a big win over Houston, 10-0.

This year, the first and second-place team from the zone round robin tournament in Fraser Lake head to provincials.

Prince Rupert won the WildCard spot. In their only blemish with their defeat to Burns Lake, the team was thwarted by an amazing goaltender, who stopped upwards of 50 shots.

Keiden Archer had a big weekend with five goals over all games played and Mitch Cook collected four himself.

Hunter German was a force, weighing in at 225 lbs. and collecting three goals over the tournament.

The Seawolves will represent the Northwest along with Burns Lake, who won the division.

Coach Rick Fudger was very proud of the discipline and work it took for the athletes to accomplish this feat.

“These guys played their hearts out and deserve to be there [at provincials]. Dave Smith, our captain, had an incredible weekend. All our third-year guys were really good this weekend – Jared Carter, Hunter German, Keenan Archer, and our goalie Cole Lindsay stood out.”

Drew Fudger had a hat-trick versus Houston and coach Fudger was pleased with the effort.

“The refs told us how composed and well-behaved our team played. That really helped. We played a very cool game throughout the tournament.”

The Seawolves will look to avenge their loss to Burns Lake during provincials in Port Alberni from March 13 – 16.

“A lot of these guys haven’t ever gone to provincials. It will be their first experience, and it should be good,” said coach Fudger.
