The Hockey House Army marched to a pair of titles at the 21st Northwest Cup,

Competing in Bend, Ore. from Aug. 15 to 17, the Hockey House teams took top spot in both the U12 and the adult B divisions.

The U12 squad lost their opening game, 5-4 to the host Bend Bullets, but shook off the rust and rallied to win their next two games.

That earned them a rematch with the Bullets and the Army used stifling defence, opportunistic offence and some clutch goaltending to dominate in a 5-1 victory.

The team is made up of Ryan Wansink, Jake Herod, Jackson Sing, Chris Tryssnar, Trevor Parsons, Austin Lochhead, Bryden Frisk and Carter Wilson.
