2013 Review

This year's Trevor Wingrove Memorial saw twenty teams competing in three divisions.  In addition to the best teams in Greater Vancouver, three teams traveled from Calgary, Alberta and there were a total of six teams from Vancouver Island.

In the Peewee Division (ages 11 and 12) Coquitlam Adanacs A1 -1 dominated the Ridge Meadows Burrards who had beat them earlier in the round robin portion of the tournament. The final score was 8 - 2.  Coquitlam was led by Drew Kask with a hat-trick and Adam Nookes with a pair while singles went to Miguel Cullum, Tyler Kraig, and Luca Antongiovanni.  Connor Nichols was outstanding in the Adanacs' net.  The Adanacs were coached by Todd Cullum.  The Burnaby Lakers won bronze medals in a tight win over Westshore from Vancouver Island 6 - 5.

The Bantam Division (ages 13 and 14) were also won by the Coquitlam Adanacs who downed the Westshore Whalers in the final by a score of 10 - 5.  The Coquitlam squad showed a well-balanced attack.  They were led by Thomas Semple with two goals while Kyle Nichols, Mackenzie Geldart, Jalen Chaster, Josh Milligan, Jordan Taylor, Lucas Infani, Robert Hofseth and Mark Sund each chipped in a goal.  The Bantam Adanacs were coached by Lance Hofseth.  In the bronze medal game it was Ridge Meadows blanking the Calgary Axemen 5 - 0.

In the highly contested Midget Division (ages 15 and 16) the Cowichan Thunder prevented the Coquitlam sweep by narrowly upsetting the Adanacs by a score of 4 - 3 in the final game of the tournament as both goaltenders excelled.  Cowichan was led by Braylon Lumb's pair of goals while singles went to Tyson Black and Colin Winship.  Coquitlam scorers were Dennon Armstrong, Dakota Coyle and Mathew Stancato.  The Midget Adanacs are coached by former Senior Adanac Pat Coyle.  In the bronze final Calgary Hornets downed the Westshore Whalers by a score of 9 -5.

Trevor Wingrove Inspirational Player Awad was presented in each of the three divisions.  The awards were given for quality of play, sportsmanship and inspirational play to his or her team mates.
