The Prince Rupert Midget Rep Seawolves are the 2016 B.C. Tier 4 provincial champions.

An overtime goal by Tyler Matalone with just 58 seconds left powered the Prince Rupert Seawolves to a 3-2 over Windermere Valley and to the provincial banner.

“The game was basically electric from when the puck dropped until the end of the game,” said coach Rick Fudger.

Fudger said the club worked as a unit and that it was truly a team effort that brought home Rupert’s first banner in eight years.

“Going into that third period, the talk was really intense between the boys. It was positive, like they’re one big family. They just looked at each other and said, ‘we’re going to do this for us’,” Fudger said.

Although the whole team played well, Fudger said the one standout was goaltender Cole Lindsay, who he believes is one of the finest goaltenders to come out of Prince Rupert.
