Young Guns play up and keep winning

Team takes B final

The Young Guns celebrate their big win at the Challenge Cup.

The Young Guns were going great guns at the big annual Challenge Cup, were they ‘played up’ and won the B Final.

The mid-Island based spring hockey school team, which practices out of Oceanside Place and pencils in players born in 2002 from Oceanside (locals in the mix included D-men Braedan Leary and John Little and forwards Ethan Raduy and Sean Brendeland), Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Campbell River and Powell River, was in action at Burnaby 8 Rinks, May 20-23.

Team mom Cathy Leary says the Young Guns registered to compete in the C Division, which they did, posting two wins (12-2, 6-5), and losing one (8-2) in round robin action.

Their 2-1 record earned them a spot in the C division semifinal against the BC Blackhawks, which the Young Guns won 3-2.

The team was promoted to the B Division final because of their efforts, and seized the moment with a gutsy 4-3 win over the Seafair Icebreakers.
