A busy weekend at the Sportsplex

Figure skating, hockey tournaments and family activities

By K.A. Pendergast

The first weekend of November saw the North Thompson Sportsplex busy with some practices, figure skating included, Over 50 Hockey, two afternoons of family skating sponsored by the Royal Bank, some Ladies drop-in hockey, and an adult recreational hockey tournament.

There were six adult teams involved in the tournament in total. Clearwater had the Mighty Drunks, an alumni Icehawks team, as well as the local Hackers.

Kamloops had the Kamloops Goats as well as the Moose Knuckles. One Hundred Milehouse had the Iceholics and McBride’s team was the Wiseguys.

The format was a round-robin venue where each team gets to play all of the others. The playoffs were organized to showcase their performances with 5th vs 6th place, 3rd vs 4th place, and 1st vs 2nd.

The final playoff game for first and second came down to the Kamloops Moose Knuckles against the 100 Mile Iceoholics with the victor being Kamloops with a 5-2 win.

The games featured some totally intense action at ice level with goals back and forth for each team over, and over again. The seasoned versus younger players in mostly equal match-ups were a sports lovers’ dream to watch.

In more local sports news the local Midget Icehawks team also headed to West Kelowna for a league game on Sunday and came out with an 8-0 victory.
