Here is the Terrace midget rep hockey team after winning a tournament in Sicamous

Midget reps battle to gold in tourney

The Terrace midget rep hockey team has won gold at a tournament in Sicamous.

Despite broken bones, concussions, flu and competing in a tier higher, the Terrace midget rep hockey team came home with gold after competing in a tournament in Sicamous, Dec. 27 – 30.

Manager for the team, Darren Munson, said the whole team came together to battle hard despite the setbacks. Specifically, there were two concussions, a broken wrist, a broken clavicle and three players down with the flu.

Game one was Terrace’s only loss of the tournament, 2-1 to Grande Prairie.

The team continued on to beat Salmon Arm 3-0, Winfield 4 – 2, Salmon Arm again 5 – 3 and then another 4-2 over Winfield, which would send Terrace into the gold medal match where the team would again meet up with Grande Prairie.

“They really proved to themselves that they can overcome anything,” Munson said of the team, who won the finals 4 – 0 over Grande Prairie.

Munson said the goaltending by Dawson Kluss was outstanding and that Rhett Munson managed a hat trick in the final game, which Terrace took on with only 10 players on the ice.

The Midget Reps played in a tournament in Kamloops for its last tournament of the year last weekend.

“Then we will catch up on our Skeena Valley Hockey League games and get ready for zone play downs at the end of February,” Munson said.
