Team Stars, with Sheldon Brett of the Comox Valley in the lineup, captured the 2011 Male Under 16 BC Cup with a 1-0 win over Team Bruins. The 2011 Male U16 BC Cup was held in Kamloops at the Interior Savings Centre and Valleyview Arena. The top 200 Under 16 players in BC Hockey attended the four-day event.

Brett is from the Vancouver Island zone and is spending the school year attending a hockey academy called the Pursuit of Excellence in Kelowna. He has played minor hockey in the Comox Valley from Initiation up to first year Bantam.

Jackson Waniek scored the lone goal mid-way through the first period for the Stars. Payton Lee and Kai McDonald played outstanding in net for the Stars in the 1-0 victory. Team Predators edged the Team Leafs 2-1 in the third place. The game was tied, but with 50 seconds remaining in the game the Predators scored to finish third.

With seconds remaining in the fifth-place game Riley Stadel scored for Team Wild to tie the game at 2-2 and force a shootout with Team Flyers. Stadel was the lone goal-scorer in the shootout and secured the fifth-place finish for his team.

Team Avalanche finished seventh with their 5-2 victory over Team Canucks. Team Thrashers picked up their first win of the BC Cup in their 4-1 win over the Team Sabres in the ninth- place game. James Severs finished with a pair of goals for the Sabres.

The BC Hockey High Performance U16 Program is designed as an introduction to BC Hockey’s High Performance Program, exposing players, coaches and officials to short term competition. The Under 16 Program also acts as a precursor to the BC Hockey High Performance U17 Program, which is used to identify and train players and team personnel for Provincial, Regional and National teams.
