Snipers on target in Christmas tournament
The Snipers won the Pee Wee C division gold medal in the Night After Christmas Tournament.
The event brought teams from across the Lower Mainland, Portland and Seattle to compete in the Hockey 2, 3 and 4; Atom and Pee Wee divisions.
In round-robin play, the Snipers tied Mission 3-3, New Westminster 5-5 and Coquitlam 4-4. Players of the game were Noah Primeau, Eric Lynum and Braden Caldwell.
That finished them in fourth place, and they took on first-place New West in semi-final. The visitors were up 2-1 with less than two minutes remaining.
Caldwell deked their goaltender to tie the game, and with 38 seconds left game MVP Mackenzie Adams ripped a shot from just inside the blueline for the game winner.
In the final they beat Mission 3-1, and the game MVP was Dawson White.
