The Creston Chiefs peewee team is moving on to the provincials in Quesnel.

Creston’s peewee Chiefs hockey team finishes first in East Kootenay

Web Lead

After finishing the East Kootenay league regular season undefeated, the Creston Chiefs peewee hockey team set their next goal on winning the East Kootenay banner, and they were successful on the weekend in Golden.

In their first game, they soundly defeated Elk Valley 12-2, scoring was shared by everyone. Game two saw them beat Whitefish 5-0, another solid defensive game. In the semifinals, they dispatched Golden 10-1, and everyone chipped in with points.

The final against Whitefish had a quick start in the first period with two goals, and the Chiefs ended up winning 4-0. This was the Chiefs’ ninth team shutout of the year. The team’s passing and defensive structure has been raised to a new level in the last month.

The coaches cannot say enough about the teamwork, discipline and confidence that the team plays with, and this was by far their best weekend of the year. The team seems to be peaking at the right time, with two weeks of practice left. The boys are setting their sights on a third goal, to win the provincials, held in Quesnel from March 18-22.

The team extends its appreciation to everyone in the community for making this goal a reality — by supporting the team fundraisers they are able to go to provincials.
