Gilbert Robbins scored the winning goal at the 13:30 mark of overtime for the William Lake Stampeders giving his squad their first ever Senior Male AA Championship
"Kudos goes to Steve Smyth, Brian Downie and the rest of the Hockeyville organizing committee for a job well done," said BC Hockey Divisional Director – Senior Male, Bob James.
