The Grand Forks Minor Hockey Association’s midget house team took second place at the Winfield Christmas Ice Breaker tournament

The Grand Forks Minor Hockey Association midget house team took second place at the Winfield Christmas Ice Breaker tournament between Dec. 14 and 16.

The team won all three of its games in round robin play, beating teams from Kelowna, North Okanagan and Winfield to place first in its pool.

The team was back on the ice on Dec. 16 at 6 a.m. in a semifinal game against Vernon, the second place team from Pool B.

It was a nail-biter of a game with Grand Forks coming out on top with an OT win.  In its final game of the weekend Grand Forks met the top-seeded Pool B team, the Kelowna Kings, and played an amazing and hard fought game.

The score was back and forth all game long and in the final minute, Kelowna scored to get the win, putting an end to Grand Forks’ eight-game winning streak.

Congratulations to Grand Forks midget house players and coaches Kaeden Dolan (alternate captain), Dan Dimock, Julian Jmayoff, Daniel Moen, William Vautour, Kyle Odland (captain), John Hovde, Tyler Coupland, Troy Frith, Ian Horahan (alternate captain), Marc Peron, Trey McPeek (goalie), head coach Allan Jmayoff and assistant coach Blair Moen.
