Golden Bantam hockey players Josh Johnson

Golden boys bring home silver

Three local hockey players joined a team out of Invermere this season and made their way to the provincial championships.

Together with commitment and dedication, Josh Johnson, Brendan Sime-Vivian and Craig Turner took on the challenge of joining the Invermere Bantam Hockey Team as there was not enough players in Golden to have a Bantam team in Golden this season.

The trio travelled to Invermere on Thursdays to practise while also working with the Golden Midget Rams on Tuesdays.

After a season of travelling over 18,000 km, playing 53 games including eight tournaments, the team was on their way to Vanderhoof, B.C. for the Bantam Tier 4 Provincials  played between March 18-22.

They won two out of their three scheduled games to make it to the semi-finals.

After a win 8-1 against Juan de Fuca,  they met up with Burns Lake again for the Championship Game and fought a hard 60 minutes for the final score being 4-3 to win silver in the province.
