The Lumby Stars went 2-0-1 to open the North Okanagan Super Pee Wee Hockey League playoffs at Pat Duke Memorial Arena.

After two weekend wins, the Stars tied Salmon Arm Salmar Classic Titans 3-3 Wednesday night at Pat Duke Memorial Arena.

Tye Krause started the scoring with a beauty pass from Linden Catt.  Zachary Young scored with seconds left in the first period from a sweet pass from Catt.

Ryder Quibell finished up the Stars’ scoring in the second period.  Salmon Arm rang up goals from Aiden Berukoff (2) and Joseph Jones in the final 20 minutes.

Catt and Quintin O’Neill each had 2+1 for the Stars in a 7-1 thumping of Salmon Arm Fix Auto.

The Stars, who carry sponsorship from  Great West Equipment and Bannister GM, got 1+2 from Young and other snipes from Quibell and Tye Krause in support of Parker Stadnyk.

Krause pulled the hat trick and earned two helpers as Lumby ambushed the Bannister Inferno of Vernon 7-1 in their second playoff titlt.

Catt produced 3+1, while Young collected 1+2. D-man Peter Romailler supplied some great passing and set up the last three goals in front of a stellar Stadnyk.

Ben Straight replied for the Inferno, assisted by MacKenzie Miller.

Andrew Rannelli, Domenik Porteous, Romailler and Kaleb Pachal formed a dynamic defence for the Stars.

The Butcher Boys Rebels clinched a berth in the Pee wee Super League semifinals with a 9-0 ambush of the Winfield Bruins Tuesday at PV Arena.

Reilly Teager needed just over 13 minutes to complete a hat trick. Operating behind the net, Kayden Bowering put a perfect pass to Teager for his second.

Teager torched the goalie high each time.  Three other Rebels also lit the lamp in the first. Dawson Twamley teed up Tyler Hamilton, whose point shot was deftly deflected in by Ronan Bedard.  Later, Hamilton went dee to dee to Bryce Lauer, and his bomb bounced to Morgan Martens, who hammered it home. Ephren Potter-Cramer buried a bad-angle shot late in the frame.

Teager collected three more for a double hat trick to close out the game. Jakob Aeichele and Kassidy Schaper-Kotter split the shutout.

Butcher Boys posted two weekend wins at Civic Arena, rallying past the Titans 3-1 and quelling the Inferno 6-1.

Early in the second, the Titans had a glorious scoring chance dashed by Rebel winger Paige Brayshaw, who rushed back to check a wide-open shooter in front.

Eleven minutes into the third, the Titans snapped the scoreless tie.  Teager evened it up with 5:26 to go, drilling a point shot through heavy traffic. With under two minutes left, Cole Grevatt won a draw back to Brooklynn Walters and tipped her point drive to Twamley, who fired the winner.

Fifty seconds later, Twamley popped another on the doorstep, from Grevatt and Bedard, after a wild scramble.

The Rebels iced the Inferno Saturday, spotting the Bannister gang a goal by Adam Battersby before countering with three before the break.

Bedard bagged a rebound from Grevatt, and then Teager busted in and cashed his own loose change.  Twamley also converted a second chance from Bedard.

The lone second-period snipe came from Bowering, who took a Connor Cecchini pass, and slipped a spin-around shot past the goalie.

In the third, Quinn Soon scored on a solo sortie, and then Grevatt buried a touch pass from Twamley in the slot. Schaper-Kotter shut out the opposition in both of her weekend turns in net.

In Midget action, Leland Riguedell and Adam Sacht each scored twice as the Corbett Office Plus Kings grounded the Vernon Authentic Plaque & Trophy Snakes 7-2 Wednesday night in Lumby.

Reid Lawrence, Seb Wenger and Brett Lambert added singles in support of spectacular Noah Foufoulas. Alyssa Racine earned three assists.

Hayden Vardon and Riley Bos countered for the Snakes (0-2). The Kings are 2-0-1.

On Sunday, the rivalry continued between Vernon Green Army and the Stars with Lumby winning 8-3.

Kyle Wheeler and his linemates, Owen Gorious and Ryan James, were sparkplugs from start to finish.

In Monday play, the stars toppled Vernon Summit Financial Hurricanes 8-1 with the Stars’ defence smothering any attack the Canes attempted.

Jack laventure, Tori Maltman and Ben Currie were especially effective playing speedy smart hockey all game. Round-robin play wraps up Saturday, with semifinals Sunday at Civic Arena and the championship game Monday at Pat Duke Memorial Arena.
