On Friday night the Bears opened the Tier 3 tournament with a hard fought tie with Williams Lake.  Caleb Kelly and Bryce Deveau were the goal scorers, with Deveau tallying late in the third period to tie the game.  Mark Pearson was strong in goal for the Bears, making a couple of late saves to preserve the tie.
