Peewee reps win 2015-16 banner

Back Row: Coach Vince Aceto

The Prince Rupert Peewee rep Seawolves came home from Vanderhoof this past weekend with some new hardware hanging around their necks and a perfect record.

The Seawolves played four games, including an intense 5-4 win in the final against the hosts Vanderhoof in Tier 4 action on their way to winning the 2016 northwest zones title.

With outstanding goaltending from Brevin Jack and some offensive flare, including goals from Luke Rabel, Nolan Stava and Aiden Watkinson early on, the Seawolves grabbed a 3-1 lead before Vanderhoof pulled even at 3-3 early in the third period.

Stava notched his second goal of the contest, which was quickly answered by the hosts to make it 4-4. But with Vanderhoof’s goalie pulled (they needed a win to move on to provincials) and time running out, Prince Rupert’s Noah Aceto blasted a shot into the empty net with just one second remaining on the clock, ensuring Rupert’s banner-winning victory, 5-4.

Jack split netminding duties with Sam Irving and Kade Jones scored six times in a 26-2 win over Burns Lake in zones’ Game One. That match was followed by an 8-2 win over Fort St. James and a 5-3 win against Houston in Games Two and Three.

Sam Wiley, Kaiden Munro, Ben Northcott, Arlen DesChamp, Braeden Anderson and all the members of the Seawolves contributed to the win through hard work and solid play.

The Peewees will now head to Armstrong and Enderby, B.C. for the provincial championships from March 12-17.
