Bantam Rep Winterhawks fundraising for Provincials

The team is hoping to cover some of the travel costs to Cranbrook March 19 to 22

If you happen to see some of these happy faces around town or at the rink, be sure to congratulate them on their win at the Northwest District Zones in Smithers on February 26th. The Kitimat Bantam Rep Winterhawks have captured the Northwest zone’s ticket to participate at the Provincial Championship being held in Cranbrook March 19th to 22nd.

The boys left it all on the ice beating Terrace with a 3-1 win on Saturday, knocking them out of contention for the finals. After Smithers took an early lead, the Winterhawks came back to tie it up and followed with two unanswered goals to win the title and banner with a 4-2 score. The team is proud to hang another Bantam Zone title banner at Tamitik Arena with the last banner being hung in 2009.

The Bantam Rep Winterhawks will be fundraising over the next two weeks to help with the costs of going to a world class event. If you would like to help out, you can email team manager Nathan Medeiros at
