WHIT­BOURNE — The Trin­ity Pla­cen­tia Pee Wee team went un­de­feated at home dur­ing the Terry Hoskins Memo­rial Pee Wee Tour­na­ment April 1-2 to cap­ture gold and the memo­rial tro­phy.

The team fin­ished up round robin play with a 3-0 record, de­feat­ing Marys­town in the cross­over game to face Bay Arena in the fi­nal.

The fi­nal game was neck and neck with Bay Arena tak­ing a 3-2 lead into the third pe­riod. But with de­ter­mi­na­tion the Tee Pees came from be­hind with two unan­swered goals to de­feat Bay Arena 4-3 and take the gold medal.

De­fence­man Car­son Ne­whook scored the game win­ner on a sim­ple dump in play that was de­flected by a Bay Arena player and found the back of the net.

The win caps off an ex­cel­lent reg­u­lar sea­son for the Pee Wee team out of Trin­ity Pla­cen­tia, plac­ing in the top three in all but one tour­na­ment this year. Next up the Tee Pees take to the road to head to Grand Falls-Wind­sor to par­tic­i­pate in provin­cials dur­ing Easter week April 17-19.
