The Lumby Stars uncovered gold in the Drop the Puck Pee Wee Rec Hockey Tournament in Kamloops.

The Stars, sponsored by Bannister GM and Great West Equipment, defeated Penticton 4-1 in Sunday’s final of the 24-team affair.

Tye Krause pocketed 3+1, while Peter Romailler opened the Lumby offence with a point blast.

Lumby opened with a 9-2 win over the Valemount Wildcats. Zachary Young supplied 2+1, while Linden Catt earned 1+3 and other goals came from  Mia Maltman, Ryder Quibell and Quintin O’Neill.

Catt and Krause each posted 3+2 as the Stars ambushed Abbotsford 8-0 Saturday morning. Romailler and Quibell added singles, while Young had two assists.

Catt and Krause again produced 3+2 as Lumby shut down the Kamloops Spartans 8-0. Young and Romailler provided singles, while some amazing assists were recorded by Kaleb Pachal, Cameron Smithson and Domenik Porteous.

In the semifinals, Parker Stadnyk registered his third shutout of the tournament as the Stars grounded Kamloops #8 4-0.

Catt and Krause each counted deuces, with clutch assists from Young, Pachal, O’Neill and Andrew Rannelli.

“All the players played amazing offence and defence all weekend long and it was truly a team effort to bring home the gold medal,” said head coach Cole Young, assisted by Todd Prentice, Kevin Porteous, Kirk Krause, Mike Quibell and Tim Seehaver.

The Stars are honouring their late beloved coach, Peter Catt, with special stickers on their helmets.
