Smithers Storm attack Prince Rupert territory during the 2012 Bantam Northwest Zone Championships at the Smithers Civic Centre.

Terrace victory spells Smithers Storm disappointment

The Smithers Storm Tier three Bantam team fell to Terrace 7-1 in the final game of the Northwest Zone Playoffs.

It was a disappointing end for the Smithers Storm Tier three Bantam team this weekend as they fell to Terrace 7-1 in the final game of the Northwest Zone Playoffs.

After beating Prince Rupert and Kitimat early in the weekend, both with decisive wins, it was a tough pill to swallow.

However, head  coach, Don Peterson says Terrace was a solid team and knew they were going to have a tough go at them.

“We won against Kitimat and Prince Rupert pretty soundly.  But I’ve got to say Terrace has a pretty good team and I hope they represent our zone well,” he said.

Terrace was resistant right from the start. Taking a 4-0 lead ten minutes into the game.

“We got caught flat footed,” said Storm captain, Braden Carr.

“We should have come out from the start going really hard. I think we didn’t really do that well, we should have started hitting and passing better than we did.”

Terrace will now head to Burnaby to represent the northwest zone, Mar. 18-23 at the BC Hockey Bantam Tier 3 Championships.
