The six other teams taking part are from Williams Lake, North Shore, Surrey, South Vancouver Island, Castlegar and Kamloops.
Clearview Colts head coach Rob Larson says the Colts face a stiff challenge given their age compared to the other teams taking to the ice.
“Our team is a younger team. We have seven peewee’s on this team where as most of the teams in this tournament are all bantam age or lots of them have second year bantams. We’ve played decent competition all year but maybe not as high level as some of the other teams. We’re going to have to outwork them.”
Larson says the squad plays a strong game in the defensive zone and isn’t afraid to go after pucks in the difficult spots on the ice.
“We work hard in the corners and along the boards. We’re a grittier team. We don’t have as much talent as a lot of other teams but we’re a hard working team. Our defence is one of our strong points and our goaltending for sure.”
The Colts opened the tournament last night with a loss to Williams Lake. They’ll take on Surrey today at 5 p.m. at the Pomeroy Sport Centre.
