A throw together peewee hockey team mostly from Terrace won the Aboriginal youth hockey tournament in Prince George March 31 to April 2.
The team was put together for the tournament with mostly Terrace kids, as well as two players from Hazelton, one from Chetwynd, and a goalie from Edmonton, Alberta.
Manager Andrea Kolmos says the northwest team has played in the tournament for the past three years, initially with mostly Hazelton players, and called the Hazelton Chiefs.
In Prince George recently, the team claimed a significant victory in the first game against the Creavers from the B.C. interior.
Second, they played Williams Lake TriNation in a close, tough game, which they followed with a clear win against Prince George Warriors.
Those round robin wins advanced them to finals against the Moricetown Bears, which was what Komlos described as a real battle.
But the Northwest team came out on top and took the win.
The tournament had nine peewee teams, including ones from Moricetown, Prince Rupert, Williams Lake, Prince George and one from Alberta.
