International Silver Stick Champions!!
The Wingham PeeWee Rep team has won the International Silver Stick PeeWee "C" Division championship.  The team was 2-1 in round robin play, defeating Stayner and Bowling Green 4-3 an 3-1 respectively on Jan. 5.  On Saturday the team dropped a 3-1 decision to East Lambton.  This put Wingham second in their group and set up a semi-final game Sunday morning against Tweed.  Wingham defeated Tweed 5-1 to move into the final against the same East Lambton team.  This time, Wingham came out on top with 4-3 OVERTIME win.  Congratulations to the players and coaches on a great achievement.

With play strong enough to win the International Silver Stick, it would make sense that Wingham placed some players on the tournament All-Star team.
