Thunder rolls in provincials

Close third nets third for midget Thunder in provincials.

With twenty left in their tier three provincials in 100 Mile House, it was looking grim for the midget Thunder.

The South Okanagan was leading the Thunder 3-1 in search of the bronze, with nada going to the loser.

Despite the dour position, the Thunder didn’t lose its bang, but made sure that cheers resounded loud as their namesake as they came back to grab the bronze with a 4-3 win.

Like the bronze medal game, the tournament didn’t start off as well.

The Thunder lost to Aldergrove 6-5 in their first game.

It started off on a golden note – the Thunder piled on the goals in the first, going up 4-0 after twenty minutes. The second was almost goal free, with Aldergrove posting the only goal late in the period. Quesnel kicked off the third with an early goal, but halfway through the third Aldergrove finally found their groove, scoring five unanswered goals to take the win.

Quesnel came back from the difficult defeat to win over the South Okanagan 6-1.

The game didn’t start until the second period, with the South Okanagan posting their only goal halfway through. The thunder responded late in the period with two of their own, then added another four in the third to ensure the win.

Quesnel went on to roll over Whitehorse 9-1.

Whitehorse started early, 10 seconds in to the first, but were unable to add anything to their early start. But the Thunder rolled on through the game, adding four in the first, four in the second and a single in the third.

Quesnel’s fourth game against Cranbrook took a while to heat up, going scoreless through the first, but once the Thunder got rolling they dominated, 6-2.

By the end of the second, the Thunder were up 2-1. Cranbrook tied it up early in the third, but it was a short lived, as the Thunder scored the go ahead goal seconds after, then put in another three just to make sure.

Alberni put a stop to the rolling Thunder in the fifth game, winning 6-4.

The game once again heated up in the second, with Alberni netting four of their goals in that period, which, added to a single in the first and the third, was enough to stop the four goals the Thunder scored.

The 3-2 record was enough to put the Thunder in the bronze medal game in the aforementioned bronze medal game, which the Thunder squeaked through to stand atop the podium.
