The 2009 Western Bantam AAA (Tier 1) Championship was recently held in Weyburn, Saskatchewan with BC being represented by the Abbotsford Hawks. Abbotsford won the right to attend after capturing the Bantam Tier 1 Championship.
The Hawks finished round robin play with three (3) wins and one (1) loss which qualified them for the gold medal game. Their only loss came at the hands of the Alberta representative the Airdrie Xtreme. The Hawks would have a chance for redemption as they took on the Xtreme for the gold medal.
The BC boys fought hard, but were unable to get the upper hand in the gold medal game losing 5-3 to the Xtreme.
BC Hockey would like to congratulate Dalton Sward for being named the Tournament MVP and Mackenzie Skapski for being named the Top Goaltender. Sward and Skapski were also named to the tournaments All Star Team.
