Lumby’s Jagger Williamon scored 30 seconds into the final as the Okanagan Hockey Academy doubled the Vancouver Selects 4-2 Sunday to win the Penticton Spring Tourney Pee Wee AAA division title.
Taylor Ward scored twice in tight and Zack Erhardt finished off a gritty effort on the power play for OHA.
Williamson pocketed 3+2 and Vernon’s Eammon Miller added 1+2 as the OHA stopped the Calgary Spitfire 6-0 in the semifinals. Ward scored twice.
The Okanagan crew slammed the Kootenay Selects 7-2, lost 2-1 to the Vancouver Selects 2-1, clipped the Kootenay Avalanche 4-3 and stopped the Spitfire 6-2 to finish second in the round-robin.
Coached by former NHLer Dixon Ward, the 1998 OHAs are a fast, cycling, passing group that use their speed to their advantage. The Vancouver Selects, undefeated in preliminary play, could not contain the faster, smaller OHA players.
The Okanagan boys are practising at the Kelowna Capital News Centre in preparation for the Mainland Cup this weekend in Vancouver.
