Thunder captain

Thunderous third

The midget Thunder hosted their season ice breaker tournament, facing off against teams from around the province.

The midget Thunder hosted their season ice breaker tournament, facing off against teams from around the province, coming out third after a hard fought weekend of hockey.

The Terrace Kermode midget team took first in the tournament, with the tier two Prince George midget Cougars finishing in between in second.

Quesnel started the tournament off strong, beating Dawson Creek 7-3. The game was hard fought, with a strong third, featuring four Quesnel goals, pushing the team to victory.

It was a similar story in their next game against Kitimat; the Thunder were down 2-1 after the first and through the second, but four unanswered Thunder goals in the third gave them a convincing, 5-2 victory.

With two wins under their belts, the Thunder rolled over the Prince Rupert Sea Wolves, 8-4.

Quesnel took their first loss at the hands of the tier two Prince George Cougars, 8-5. The Thunder were slow starting and weren’t able to score in the first, which put them down two and ultimately was the team’s undoing. A solid performance in the second and third was not enough to make up for the initial deficit.

The Thunder faced Prince Rupert again in their final game for third.

A solid goal-a-period performance from the Thunder offence was enough to catch the win, as the defence kept Prince Rupert to a single point, which they earned early in the game. The win put the Thunder in third.
