The ice at the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm is a busy one during hockey season, booked full-up nearly every weekend for one kind of tournament action or another.
This past weekend was the Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association’s midget rec tournament, bringing in teams from across the province to compete for a trophy – and bragging rights for the victors.
The Salmon Arm Silvertips has two teams entered into the tournament, playing on two sheets of ice over the weekend.
The final match came out to a showdown between two different teams from Kelowna, and Kelowna’s team seven (The Colossal Bigs) took the top spot. Salmon Arm team one was just barely edged out of the finals and took third place after a loss to Kelowna.
Salmon Arm’s team two came in tenth overall in the tournament.
Tournament play continues next weekend in Salmon Arm, with the atom development tournament hitting the ice and bringing out a younger crew of competitors to skate their way to victory.
