The Terrace Midget Rep hockey team returned home with a second place finish after a tournament in Fort St. John Jan. 7-9.

The trip was a significant effort because of the distance travelled and poor driving conditions.

Game one was on Friday afternoon, and saw Terrace off to a great start with a spirited game against Prince George ending in a 4-3 Terrace win. Chris Allison had a great game, grabbing two goals, and Kyle Gray was in net.

Game two was later that day against Mackenzie. Terrace again got off to a great start and kept up pace for the game, taking a 7-0 victory in the end. Dawson Kluss was in net.

The next morning the team’s first game was at 10 a.m. against home team of Fort St. John. Terrace had a strong performance with another dominant win, this time 6-1.

The next game was against Dawson Creek. The team seemed flat in this game, even though they had easily beaten Dawson Creek in the past. However, they hung on for a 3-2 win.

Terrace was at the top of the standings going into Sunday’s final game, which was played at 9:30 in the morning.

Terrace was taking on Prince George again and this time ran into a bit more difficulty. Prince George came out strong with a 4-0 lead. Terrace tried to recover in the third period with two quick goals but penalty trouble got in the way and Prince George ended up taking the game, and the tournament win, 4-2.

Terrace ended up with the silver and Kyle Gray was named the team star.

“I think the boys did well all weekend long,” said Zane Testawitch, head coach.

He said the highlight of the tournament was the opening game against Prince George.

“After the kids travelled two straight days on a bus that first game was really good to see the effort and dedication,” Testawitch said.

He stressed that all of the players on the team were equal contributors to their seasons success.

The team is set to host Kitimat this weekend.
