The Ridge Meadows Rustlers won the Chilliwack pee wee hockey jamboree over the holidays.

In their first game, the Rustlers A2 team played the host Chilliwack A3, and rode a four-goal performance from game MVP Gavin Bruce to a 5-1 victory.

Their second game was a 5-1 win over Merritt A1. The game MVP was standout defenceman Nik Pederson, and Jackson Chimiliar scored twice.

The Ridge Rustlers crushed  Portland A2 by a score of 9-0 in their third game. Justin Cloete scored a hat trick and Tanner Eaton scored his first goal of  the season.

In their fourth game against Chilliwack A4 they won 5-2, with Alexis Kahlert named the game MVP.

Next up, they beat Chilliwack's A3 team again, by a 6-4 margin.  Jakob Mainhout was the MVP.

They finished the tournament with a win over the Everett Silvertips, and Kahlert was the MVP.

So far in league play, the team has gone a perfect 12-0, but has been heavily penalized, with 217 minutes in 12 games.

This tournament could be a turning point, however, as the Rustlers showed great discipline, and was the last penalized team in the tournament, which helped them to win the gold medal.

"We are becoming Team Tenacity," said coach Ed Moulton. "Physical, tenacious and fast – that's our motto."
