Peewee Cowichan Thunder build rivalry with Eagles

The peewee A Cowichan Valley Thunder seem destined to run into Vic-Esquimalt when the most is on the line.

The Thunder and Eagles have squared off in the finals of back-to-back tournaments recently, with Vic-Esquimalt winning the first time and Cowichan getting even a week later. The Thunder swept their way through the first tournament, the Captain Cook, hosted by Juan de Fuca on May 22-24, beating Peninsula, Vic-Esquimalt and Abbotsford. Another win over Abbotsford in the semifinal sent the Thunder the title game, which Vic-Esquimalt won 9-6. The same two teams met in the opening game of the Wayne Goss Tournament in White Rock last weekend, with the Eagles winning 9-7. The Thunder got back on track with wins over Surrey (13-5) and New Westminster (13-3) before beating Ridge Meadows 13-4 in the semifinal. Cowichan then defeated Vic-Esquimalt 5-4 in the gold medal game. Dawson Sears scored the decisive goal, Dawson Elzinga had a hat trick, and Josh Macdonald also found the back of the net.

The Thunder have dominated their league games, compiling a 9-2 record so far this season against Vic-Esquimalt and Peninsula.
