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.
