The West Kootenay Peewee Wildcats female hockey team (based out of Trail) came out on top at the Surrey Superheart Tournament this past weekend.

The tournament is the biggest female event, hosting 43 teams (novice to midget). The Wildcats entered the Tier 2 peewee division going up against Langley, South Delta, Tri-Cities, and Meadow Ridge.

Round Robin play went 3-0-1. The tie was against Langley who the Wildcats would end up facing in the finals.

The final game was full of excitement and ended up going to a five-minute overtime and then a shootout.  It went all the way to four shooters before Megan Gorman from Grand Forks would score the winner!

Kayda Lohrer would get three shutouts and only three goals against the whole tournament. The team is gearing up for league playoffs in Spokane March 6-8.
