Captain of the Terrace Totem Ford Midget Reps Austin Turner accepts the team’s first place award at the Prince George Tier 2 tournament.

Terrace Totem Ford Midget Reps travelled to Prince George over the Nov. 16-18 weekend and left taking first place in their Tier 2 annual tournament.

Terrace dominated almost all of their games, first playing Prince Rupert Friday morning and beating them 3-0, with goals from Rhett Munson, Curtis Hull and Ryan Roseboom and the shut-out for Brandon Thandi.

Later that day, Terrace spanked Williams Lake 7-1 with goals from Nikita Desjarlais, Colin Bell, Colten Braid, Devon Poulin, Tanner Braid, Austin Turner and Ryan Roseboom. In goal was Dion Johnston.

Saturday’s first game against longtime rival Quesnel, was another satisfying defeat, 7-1, with goals from Rhett Munson, Chris Allison, Curtis Hull and four goals from Austin Turner with Brandon Thandi between the pipes.

Saturday’s second game was against the hometown team Prince George, in which Terrace was feeling the effects of their early morning game and lost 4-2. Goals from Ryan Roseboom and Chris Allison.

But Terrace was still in the top spot and advanced to the finals, only to play the home town team once again on Sunday. But this time Terrace was well-rested and came out strong. They still didn’t score any goals until the second period when they took a lead of 2-0 going into the third period. Goals from Austin Turner and Chris Allison.

Quesnel managed to get a power play goal on Brandon Thandi early in the third but Terrace held on and battled hard through numerous penalties to hold on to their one goal lead to take the gold.

This was the third tournament so far this season with the best outcome.

It was a huge win for the team and a great confidence booster for the boys, who work hard and have been practising twice a week.

They also do dry land training with Amber Pipe once a week.

After some league play against Kitimat last weekend, the team is travelling to Williams Lake Nov. 29-Dec. 2 for another tournament, looking for another great outcome.
