The tournament has become a staple event on Prince Rupert’s roads during Seafest, and Michele Cross Pomponio, one of the event’s organizers, said players anticipate it every year.

“The tournament went really well,” said Pomponio. “It was a smaller competition than in previous years, but the participants still had fun.”

Mission Possible won two games against the Knights to win the initiation division.

Stuck On Designs Paper Cut beat the RE/Max Rockets 3-2 in overtime to win the novice division.

In the Atom division, the Rupert Grain Road Sharks beat the Bridgeview Warriors 2-1.
