Although Juan de Fuca swept the tournament until that final game, the Peninsula boys rocked the matchup, winning 6-3 at Oak Bay Recreation Centre.

Dawson Evans was instrumental in the victory, firing off three for a hat trick. Trey Sjerven’s “amazing” goaltending kept most of the opponents’ shots at bay, contributing to the win, said the team’s co-manager Tracy Zeisberger.
