The three Summerland Novice hockey teams hosted seven other teams from around B.C. to all gather and play at the Shoot To Thrill SMHA tournament March 8 to 10.

The players, ages seven and eight, took to the ice and played exciting and fun games for all to watch. Players had smiles galore as they took to the ice.

Each team played four games and truly left their “hockey hearts” out on the ice.

In Sunday’s games, Summerland Ultra Jets played a hard game against Penticton Blue.  They battled hard, but lost in a 10-5 decision.

Summerland Jetzkys played Salmon Arm Tigers on Sunday.

A strong game was played by both teams, with Jetzkys winning 4-2.

The final game of the tourney was Summerland Fighter Jets against Coquitlam Kings.

The Fighter Jets skated hard, and shot harder, but were defeated 7-2.

The Summerland Novice parents would like to thank the Summerland business community for their support of the tournament.  It was an amazing way to end the novice hockey season.
