Shawnigan's new arena played host to a busy hockey schedule for the second time this weekend, with fans turning out in full force for eight games.
A team from Alaska began its visit to the School on Friday, shadowing the Shawnigan bantam players as they attended classes, fine art and lunch before mixing together for a fun 4-on-4 tournament in the evening.
On the ice, the Bantams played four games, beating the Anchorage North Stars 10-2 and 7-1 to bookend the event. The Bantams also posted an exciting 5-3 victory over the Delta Wild Academy on Saturday, in a rematch of the Portland tournament semi-final. Delta would avenge that loss with their own 7-5 win on Sunday, giving the Bantams a 3-1 record on the weekend.
Meanwhile, the Shawnigan Varsity squad played a pair of exhibition matchups against the Burnaby Winter Club's Prep team. Burnaby won 5-2 on Saturday, before dropping a lopsided affair on Sunday as injuries began to mount.
