There were three other Prince George teams competing at provincials this year, with two of them reaching the podium as well.
The Under-16 ‘B’ team went undefeated (5-0) in their respective tournament en route to the gold medal.
They won the championship game over northern B.C. league-rival Houston by a score of 4-2.
Meanwhile, Prince George’s Under-14 ‘B’ squad (Team White) persevered to the finals of their division, but fell 5-2 to Terrace and settled for the silver.
They finished 3-1 in the round-robin.
From the seven divisional gold medal games, the Thompson-Okanagan League went home with four of them; won by Kelowna’s Under-19 ‘A’ and Under-16 ‘A’ teams, Westside’s Under-19 ‘B’ team, and the Greater Vernon Ringette Association’s Under-14 ‘A’ team.
All associations participating in provincials brought co-ed teams to the northern capital.
