Well-matched games

It was a three-game weekend in Sicamous for the Silvertips Pee Wee Tier 2 players

It was a three-game weekend in Sicamous for the Silvertips Pee Wee Tier 2 players, starting Friday against their rivals, Kamloops. It was a typical battle from beginning to end for the Podollan Inn-sponsored Tips, ending in a 1-1 score. On Saturday, the Silvertips did not know what to expect as they had not played Penticton this season. The matchup was a continual end-to-end skate-a-thon with numerous opportunities for both sides. The final tally after all the hard work was 0-0. On Sunday versus Penticton, the Silvertips took the lead in the first period 2-0. In the second Penticton woke up a bit, with the scored tied at three apiece in the second intermission. Salmon Arm stepped it up, going ahead 4-3 with 12 minutes left. Penticton increased the pressure, tying the game at 4-4. A Tips’ penalty meant  a goal for Penticton. Final score: 5-4. Congratulations  go to hard-hat recipients Ryan Freed, Jaron Bootsma, and Trent Thompson.
