Ice Breaker Rep Tournament
Four days and 128 games – that’s a lot of great hockey. Yet if you were anywhere near the Richmond Ice Centre, that’s what you would have been treated too. Many of the top Atom, Peewee, Bantam and Midget teams showcased their skills to over 1,500 appreciative hockey parents, families and friends. Special thanks to all our volunteers for making the tournament another success. Congratulations to our Peewee A2 team for winning the A2 crown, and to all our other teams who performed well. Here’s a recap of the weekend
Richmond A1 went undefeated in round-robin play with a 2-0-1 record. Their hopes would soon end with a tough 3-1 to undefeated Coquitlam. Coquitlam would go on to lose to Kelowna, the other undefeated round-robin team in the finals by a score of 4-3
Richmond A2 was in first place after round-robin play with a 2-0-1 record. This was an odd division as both 1st and 2nd place finishers in Round Robin play were knocked off by the 3rd and 4th place teams, with Victoria being the eventual champions.
Richmond A3 sailed through round-robin play taking 1st place with an impressive 3-0 record. Perhaps they were thinking ahead to the finals, as they lost to 4th place Oceanside in the semi-finals. Oceanside would move on to lose in the finals to Sunshine Coast
Finishing in 3rd place with a 2-1 record, Richmond A1 surprised 2nd place finishers Kamloops with a solid 3-0 victory. Unfortunately, they would fall short in the finals with a 5-1 loss to the first place round-robin finishers, Cloverdale.
This was Peewee A2’s weekend. Team Yip (coached and managed by the Yip family). Outscored their opponents 30-10 in Round Robin Play, taking 1st place. The team then trounced Victoria Racquet Club 7-0 in the semi-finals, and completed their perfect 5-0 tournament record with a 4-1 win over Cloverdale in the championship game.
Peewee A3 started off slow with a 1-2 record. Finishing 4th in round-robin play, the team showed their true colours by knocking off 1st place finishers Victoria in semi-final play. But the cheers quickly ended, as they dropped a heartbreaker to Abbotsford in the finals 3-2
After an opening-round loss, the Bantam A1’s bounced back with 2 victories to capture 2nd place. In the semi-finals, they had a tough 3-2 loss to Coquitlam, thus ending their day
Undefeated in round-robin play with a 2-0-1 record, the Midget A1 team would go on to lose a back and forth game 5-4 to the South Central Rockets
