The Kitimat Winterhawks Bantam Rep team registered a 2-0 win over the Prince Rupert Seawolves in a best of three series for the Zone Championships on February 10 and 11.
In Game 1, Kitimat came out flying and with a late third period goal they prevailed 3-1.
Game 2 was a fast-paced game with lots of chances for both teams. Rupert went into the third with a 3-2 lead, but Kitimat scored in the first 18 secs of the third to tie the game.
Kitimat then scored in the last seven minutes of the game to take the game 4-3.
With that victory, Kitimat won the best of three series two games to none and won the Zone Championship.
The boys played hard and achieved one of the goals set out this year, there is still one more goal to achieve. Winning the Banner in front of the family and friends was very rewarding but there still is more hard work to be done to win the provincials.
Kitimat will now host the Bantam BC Hockey Provincial Championships from March 18 to 22.
