Eight Comox Valley teams took part in the 34th annual Canadian Adult Recreational Hockey Association (CRHA) Pacific Cup tournament in Victoria.

The Jan. 14-16 event featured 122 recreational hockey teams from Western Canada and the United States.

“The Pacific Cup tournament annually attracts the most teams that attend our tournaments held across Canada,” said CARHA’s Scott Wilson in a news release. The teams were divided into 20 divisions.

The Courtenay Plumbers defeated the Abbotsford Jets 3-1 on Sunday as the teams finished with identical 3-1-0 records atop the six-team CARHA Hockey division. However the Jets were plus-nine in goals for/goals against while the Plumbers were plus-eight, so the locals settled for a close second place.

The Courtenay Pirates (3-1-0) finished second in the eight-team Pro Hockey Life division, losing 5-4 to the Ladner Raiders (4-0-0) in the final.

The Courtenay Pig Dusters (0-3-0) finished seventh in the eight-team Alberta division, dropping their final game 3-0 to Video Works of Campbell River on Saturday.

The Finneron Generals of Courtenay went 0-2-1 to finish sixth in the six-team Deep Relief division.

The Courtenay Islanders (3-1-0) defeated the Seattle Wolves (2-2-0) on Sunday to take top spot in the four-team New Brunswick division.

Comox Valley Rusty Nails (2-1-1) finished second in the six-team Nova Scotia division after losing 2-1 to Abbotsford Barley Hoppers (3-0-1) on Sunday.

In the six-team Ellis Peters division, the Comox Valley Legends (1-2-0) finished fourth while the Courtenay Bloodshot Oldtimers (0-2-1) were sixth.
