The Terrace Midget Rep hockey team took second place at the Skeena Valley Hockey League’s northwest zone championships, Feb. 25- 26.

The tournament hosted teams from Smithers, Kitimat, Terrace and Prince Rupert for some fast-paced hockey, hosting some of the region’s best in minor hockey.

Manager for the Terrace midget reps Darren Munson said that although the tournament didn’t go as the team had hoped it would, Terrace players put out an exceptional weekend of hockey.

The tournament started off on a high note for Terrace with a 4-1 win over Kitimat. Game two  Terrace lost to Prince Rupert 5-3,  before taking a win over Smithers 6-2, which put Terrace into the finals against Prince Rupert.

Playing for a crowd of about 200 people, Terrace starting off the scoring with two goals in the first period. Prince Rupert answered back with two goals in the second, bringing the teams neck and neck with two goals each going into what was a very tight third period.

“It was just so tense,” Munson said of the play. “It was an unbelievable game to watch.”

With about two minutes left on the clock, Prince Rupert scored the tie-breaking goal, taking the tournament win and the provincial berth for the region.

Munson said the loss was particularly tough on the third year midget players who were playing their last games as Terrace Minor hockey players.

This wraps up a strong season of hockey for the Terrace midget rep team, who took first in the Skeena Valley Hockey League in points.

In total, including regular play, six tournaments and the northwest zones, the team played 54 games and brought home 39 wins, 12 losses and three ties for the season.
