The Vanderhoof Cycle North Bantam Bears travelled to 100 Mile House and capped off a successful weekend with a 5-0 win over Williams Lake, in the championship game played Sunday.

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.

On Saturday the Bears faced off against the PG Canucks in their final round robin game and prevailed 7-4.  Jeff Boschman, Deveau, Eric Silver and Caleb Kelly scored in the first period to help stake Vanderhoof to a  4-1 lead.  Tate Page scored the lone goal of the second, while Dante Joseph tallied two, late shorthanded goals in the final period to cap the victory.  Noah Miles was sharp between the pipes for the Bears.

On Saturday evening the Bears faced off against host 100 Mile House in the semi-final game.  Vanderhoof led 3-2 after one period and extended their lead to 5-2 after the second.  The Bears tallied three more times in the final frame in rolling to an 8-3 victory.  Goal scorers for the Bears were Bryce Deveau and Dante Joseph with two each, while singles went to Jeff Boschman, Cody Holland, Jim Silver and Eric Silver.

In the championship game played Sunday afternoon, Jayden Syrota led the way with a “hat trick”, while lone tallies went to Boschman and Deveau.  Mark Pearson was again strong in goal in posting the shutout.
