Terrace Peewees fall to Arbutus for fourth at provincials

The Terrace Peewee Reps fell just short of a medal at Tier 3 provincial championships in Creston, falling 6-4 to Arbutus in the bronze medal game.

Terrace had beat Arbutus 6-3 in the second game of the tournament, but couldn't get past their goalie this time around. Shots on goal favoured Terrace 28-24 in the game that saw lots of action on both ends.

Terrace opened the scoring in the first period at 14:38 and then added another goal two minutes later. Arbutus replied at 7:49 and the period ended with Terrace leading 2-1.

But Arbutus tied the game at 19:45 of the second period and Terrace answered near the end of the period to take a 3-2 lead into the final frame.

Arbutus came out strong in the final period and scored two goals near the middle of the period to take the lead. Terrace pulled their goaltender in favour of an extra attacker but Arbutus scored into the empty net to seal the victory.

The young Terrace Peewees had unexpected success this season and went undefeated at zones to win the northwest zone championships.

And in a dominating 14-1 win over Quesnel, Dawson Creek took home the gold at the provincial tournament.
