The Harbour Grace CeeBees defeated the North East Eagles to win the Bantam tournament by a score of 4-3 on January 12. The teams played their heart out, delivering big hits, great passes and big saves between the pipes by both goalies.
At the end of the day, it was the Habour Grace CeeBees that walked away with the victory.

Trent Drover from Upper Island Cove led the way for the CeeBees, notching all four goals for the winning club. As a result he was named player of the game.

The game remained scoreless until the Eagles Michael Saunders scored in the second period after the CeeBees defenseman slid into the goalie Kelsey Shute. The CeeBees responded when Drover pounced on a rebound from a shot by Samantha Pike, tucking the puck into the net to knot the score at 1-1.

North East jumped out to the lead again shortly after when Brandon Gould deked Shute to give the Eagles a 2-1 lead. Drove responded almost immediately, taking a pass from teammate Williams and beat the Eagles netminder Ryan Murley. With the score tied at 2, the CeeBees took the lead when Drover scored his third of the night completing the hat trick. He then scored his fourth goal of the game giving the CeeBees a two-goal advantage.

The Eagles were not done just yet. They scored to make the game 4-3 heading into the third period. However, both goalies came up with big save after big save until the horn sounded, giving the CeeBees the gold medal.
