Grand Forks Pee Wee Bruins hockey team did very well this weekend in a tournament in Nelson.

Grand Forks Pee Wee Bruins team took the gold at a tournament in Nelson this past weekend. The tournament featured 12 teams from throughout the Kootenay and Okanagan.

The Bruins started off with a win against the Kelowna Ice Hawks before losing their first game of the season against the North Okanagan Knights.

“The loss served as a learning lesson for the team,” said coach Ron Vautour. “After the loss, the players realized the importance of working together and team play.”

After that loss, Grand Forks bounced back to defeated both Kaslo and Trail before meeting the host Nelson Leafs in the final. The Bruins won the final game easily, beating Nelson 6-3.

The team heads over the hill again next weekend for a tournament in Castlegar.
