The Kelowna Great Western Containers Rockets celebrate the Okanagan Mainline peewee tier 3 title last weekend at the Capital News Centre.

Unbeatable in league and playoffs all season, the Kelowna Great Western Containers Rockets finished the Okanagan Mainline 2010-11 campaign in style.

The Rockets won the valley tier 3 boys hockey title by taking down Revelstoke in straight games in the championship series.

The clincher came Saturday at CNC, but not without a challenge.

Kelowna needed two overtime periods to dispose of Revelstoke 2-1.

The Rockets finished regular season and playoffs with a perfect 21-0 record, but had another close call in their first round series when they needed four periods of OT to beat Westside.

Overall, the Rockets are 39-3-1 this season.

“The boys on this Team have done a tremendous job of coming together, facing adversity, and conducted themselves with class all season,” said coach Dave Alcorn.

The Rockets will represent OMAHA at the provincial tier 3 championship beginning March 19 in Campbell River.

The league champs are:  Duncan Fiust, Marc Apchin, James Fischer, Brandon Smith, Jacob Landry, Tate Stephens, Jake Kovtach, Donovan Cridland, Quinn Stanthope, Hayden Courtney, Tommy Bodtker, Peter King, Tye Boray, Jameson Murray, Noah Fancy, Matt Alcorn, Landon Markosky, and Owen Partrick.

The coaching staff is Dave Alcorn, Vince Murray, Dean Stephens and Scott Landry, the manager is Paul King, and the trainer is Burton Fischer.
