It was a clean sweep at the podium for three bantam teams out of the Oceanside Minor Hockey Association, as the league hosted the Break Away Classic to kick off the New Year.

With 12 teams taking part in the tournament, one from Surrey and the rest from here on Vancouver Island, there were four teams from the Oceanside league that battled for medals to close out the tournament.

In the third place game, it was the Oceanside Bombers skating away with the bronze medal.

The game for first and second came down to the Oceanside Vipers and the Oceanside Whalers, which saw the Whalers coming away with gold, leaving the Vipers with a silver medal.

All in all, it was a great showing for the bantam teams out of the Oceanside league and a great way for the teams to get back into the swing of things to start off the New Year.
