The team won Gold over Vancouver Jr. Stealth 9-6. A physical game by the Kodiaks, who wore down the Stealth. While the Stealth made it interesting, by the 3rd , Kelowna was definitely the hungrier team and earned the win. This PeeWee team will be strong in coming years. Good stick skills. Physical team, showing good movement.
Coach Clint was at the game and kindly passed along awesome video highlights for those interested in seeing some talented Pee Wee A2 Players bring home the gold!

You see a great play during a hockey game and say …. man, that was trick, how did he do that?
Well, here’s something interesting you might not know!
2014 Olympic Men’s Hockey Team
The no look shot Drew Doughty scored as Canada’s first goal had us wondering whether Drew Doughty ever played lacrosse. A right handed shot defensemen scoring with no look shot from the left side of the ice. That can’t be a coincidence.
Sure enough, Drew played minor lacrosse in London, Ontario. So, we have David Bolland (a former Mimico lacrosse star) scoring a Stanley Cup winning goal and Drew Doughty scoring the only goals for Team Canada in a big game against the Finns. Both were lacrosse players.
Perhaps the brain trust at Hockey Canada should start promoting box lacrosse instead of hockey 365 days per year.
