Tournament finishes in thriller

The final game of the Bantam Tier 2 tournament at the Shaw Centre this weekend was decided in a thrilling shootout

The final game of the Bantam Tier 2 tournament at the Shaw Centre this weekend was decided in a thrilling shootout.

The Scotia Bank Bantam Tier 2 Silvertips faced off against Vernon who were also undefeated heading into the final. Both teams opened up the game with a fast pace and each team traded scoring chances early on.

Salmon Arm’s Riley Keyes broke the deadlock in the first period, and Vernon came back to tie it up in the third. With neither team scoring in a tense four-on-four overtime period, a shootout was needed to decide the winner.

Vernon would go on to take the championship in the shootout, while the Silvertips would have to settle for second.

In the ’Tips first game on Friday afternoon they defeated the Abbotsford Hawks.

Salmon Arm’s Cole Nisse and Jaron Bootsma got the home team on the board in the first period by scoring a goal each.

The second period saw Keyes net a goal, before Abbotsford scored their first of the game. Nisse got his second goal of the game as Salmon Arm would win 4-2. On Saturday the Silvertips played Williams Lake and won 3-1. Dylan Huber got a goal during the first period and followed it up with one in the second.

The ’Tips final goal of the game was scored by Keyes. Saturday evening the ’Tips faced off against North Vancouver upsetting the visitors 8-2.

In the semifinal game the Silvertips once again faced the  Abbotsford Hawks, dominating the game from the start as Koltin Dodge earned the shutout in the 6-0 victory.

Nisse scored two goals, while Dominic Barbosa, Keyes, Marino Bordin and Bootsma, each scored a goal.
