The Terrace Bantam Female Reps broke their tournament winning streak over the Nov. 24 weekend in Kamloops, taking third place after falling to Red Deer in the semi-finals.

The weekend saw the team face off against some of the highest ranked teams in the province, like the North Shore Avalanche and the Surrey bantam girls team.

And the girls held their own, picking themselves up after a hard 5-1 loss to the number one ranked North Shore Avalanche to beat Surrey, the third ranked team, 5-1.

They then continued to prove they have Vernon’s number, beating them 7-1, for their third win against the team this year.

Despite losing in the semi-finals, something the team isn’t used to as they’ve been practically undefeated in every tournament this year, their coach, Mario Desjardins, says it was a “pretty successful weekend.”

“Overall the girls I thought had a pretty decent tournament, but didn’t play their best hockey collectively as a team,” he said.

“Certainly some room for improvement. Maybe a little reality check.”

The team has just returned home from a trip to Prince George, where they were looking to redeem themselves. Look for those results in print and online next week.
