Cowichan Valley’s Midget C1 hockey team considered it an honour to play in the Nick Collins memorial hockey tournament at Kerry Park Arena and a bonus to win it.

The team had a slow start to the season but has been gathering strength. The win was a huge boost to the confidence of the players.

The deciding game between Cowichan Valley and the Peninsula Eagles was a barnburner.

The game ended in a 3-3 tie after regulation time and went to a three-player shootout to break the deadlock. Blair Robertson, the third shooter, scored the winning goal and netminder Justin Butler shut the door on Peninsula.

Other team members included: Brendan Wilkinson, Jeremy Greer, Malcolm Haines, Bryar Lange, Sterling Godfrey, Cayle Marsh, Gavin Hollebakken, Davis Lloyd, Josh Porter, Braydon Taylor, Foster Schlienz, Gavin Johansen, Amar Cheema, Aedyn Duke, Keir Baknes, Matt Beaveridge, Steen Baknes and Darien Didier.
