Victory was there for the taking when the Estevan Peewee and Bantam Voltz headed to Weyburn this past weekend for invitational tournament.

The Bantams went undefeated to become the A event champs. Starting with a 13-4 win over the Regina Bandits, they went on to beat the Winnipeg Sidewinders 10-7, shutout Weyburn 8-0, and pummel the Regina Snipers 7-2. Finishing first in the round robin, they went to defeat the Regina Bandits once again, 10-1, before emerging victorious over the Winnipeg Sidewinders 7-4. This was their second tourney win of the year.

"We've got a pretty strong core group of kids, they played well together. We had kids rotating in and out of the line-up all weekend, and they clicked very well to come away with six victories," shared Team Manager Blaine Chrest.

Despite coming out on top, the Bantam Voltz still brought away some lessons to apply for later.

"We need to maybe be a little stronger on our penalty kill, and stay out of the box a little bit more, and take advantage of our good scoring opportunities. We missed quite a few over the weekend, the scores could have been a lot higher, actually."

They suit up again to host Weyburn at home on Wednesday.

While the Bantams were stunning their competitors in their division, the Peewee Voltz left a mark in their's.

Shutting out Weyburn 10-0, they proceeded to fall 9-2 to the Regina Outlaws and 11-1 to the Regina Raiders. They played the Raiders again and lost 9-2 before winning the B final 9-5 to take home bronze.

"(In game two) we ran into a couple of hot players on their team and they took it to us pretty good, but it was a learning experience for the kids. (The next Regina team, the Raiders), the goalie is a phenomenal goalie, probably one of the better kids in Saskatchewan, and he basically shut us out. We had lots of opportunities on him, we got one goal against him, but (he's) just a phenonmenal player," shared Head Coach Trevor McNabb.

"Our kids took a lot back, a lot of learning moments. We proceeded to play that same team on Sunday with the crossover game, and we played a lot better. We got a couple goals past him, and again ran into one hot player from that Regina group. The we went on to play the third Regina team, and the (Estevan) boys wanted to show that they could compete. They came out, and I believe after the first 10 minutes we were up 4 nothing."

"The compete level is getting better every game, the kids are learning their roles and coming together as a team. It's looking pretty good," he added.

The Voltz get a break over the long weekend before heading Swift Current on the weekend after.

The Bantam Voltz brought Gold home from Weyburn.
