The Peewee A1 junior Terriers returned from the Peewee A1 Provincials in The Pas with a bronze medal in tow after beating Stonewall 3-2 in the third place match.

The Terriers opened the tournament against Cross Lake and won 12-0, setting the stage for an exciting round robin. The Terriers played Stonewall the following day and lost 6-5 in a hard-fought battle. The loss put the mini-Dogs in fourth place after round robin competition, setting up a semifinal match against eventual champions Lorette. The dogs couldn’t handle the strong attack from Lorette and after the loss found themselves up against Stonewall for the second time of the tournament.

The second time wasn't much different but the Dogs managed to persevere toward a 3-2 victory. The kids rebounded after the loss to capture the bronze.
