Cloverdale Minor Hockey Association’s Bantam C5 Stingers celebrate in Kamloops. Back row

Cloverdale’s Bantam C5 team Stingers travelled to Kamloops this past weekend (Feb. 18 to 20) hoping to bring home the prize.This great group of kids played hard and won almost all of their games in the Kamloops Hockey Tournament. With our only loss against Chilliwack, everyone thought we might be lucky and place fifth, but because of our strong, earlier performances we had more goals “for” than anyone else in our pool and surprisingly came in fourth place overall before the playoffs.  This meant that everyone had to go to bed early on Saturday night because we had to beat the first place team the next morning at 7 a.m. or face elimination. Our boys were totally committed and battled hard to beat the Kelowna Flyers first thing Sunday morning. With an outstanding performance from each and every one  of them we advanced to the finals. The final game was a nail biter (for the parents) but with an all-round great team effort this group of 13- and 14-year-olds beat the Ridge Meadows Warriors (7-5) and brought home the first place trophy.Congratulations to all the players and coaching staff.
