Here are the Terrace Peewee house Reds after their big win in the championship final.

Terrace’s Red Peewee House team, aka Dediluke Land Surveying, went undefeated at this month’s tournament, upsetting Northwest Fuels in the championship final 6-2.

This was an unlikely win for the team, as they’d only won two games all season but rattled off five straight victories to win the tournament, explained coach Brian Jones in an email last week.

Those wins were against Kitimat, Prince Rupert, Smithers and Hazelton.

Seven teams attended the tournament, held the first weekend of the month at the Terrace Sportsplex, with three teams hailing from Terrace.

Jones said things came together for the team in a number of ways.

Strong defensive play by Brett Jones, Emily Korving and Sasha Haldane made a difference.

As did great goaltending by an underage goalie, Brody Goodall.

Incredible hustle by forwards Liam Gudmunson, Thomas Gagnon and Jackson Hamel helped drive up points.

And a timely penalty shot goal by Travis Frank played crucial.

Strong team play, a great work ethic and discipline by the whole team also proved key to the win, added coach Jones.
