Provincial silver for Terrace bantam reps

After an undefeated run at bantam rep Tier 3 provincials in Burnaby, Terrace has skated away with second place.

After an undefeated run at bantam rep tier three provincials, Terrace skated away with second place, after losing to Quesnel in the gold medal match March 23 in Burnaby.

“[It was] a bit of a heart breaker,” said coach Jesse Schroeder.

The game saw a major comeback for Quesnel, as Terrace held a strong lead throughout the game, going into the third period 5-1.

“The good and bad part about the game of hockey is it’s all about momentum, and it can shift and it shifts in a hurry,” said Schroeder. “They (Quesnel) had the momentum and they ran with it.”

This is the second year in a row the two teams have faced off for provincial gold. Last year, Terrace beat Quesnel 9-2 at bantam tier three provincials in Smithers.

“We’ve got a good rivalry with Quesnel from last year,” Schroeder said. “They came back against us, and they deserve a lot of credit.”

The gold medal game was the only loss for Terrace throughout the five-day tournament as the bantams went undefeated against all other teams.

“The kids just played really well, there was a team effort and they played really hard,” Schroeder said.

Provincials started on March 18, and Terrace began its winning streak with a 9-4 victory over Powell River. Game two was an 6-1 victory over Dawson Creek, followed by a 5-0 sweep of the Kamloops team.

Game four saw Terrace taking on  Semiahmoo, where they won 6-3, advancing the team on to the semi-finals where Terrace beat Whistler 9-3.

“It’s been a phenomenal year for these boys,” Schroeder said. “They have a lot to be proud about, they have done Terrace proud throughout the year representing the city.”
