Two South Surrey teens were part of roller-hockey history last month, as members of the first Canadian team to ever win the squirt platinum division of North American Roller Hockey Championships.

Davis Koch and Trevor Ayre were both members of the Westcoast Warriors, a team of 13-year-olds from Surrey and Langley who went undefeated in the prestigious tournament, held at the end of July in Estero, Fla.

The Warriors – who had originally hoped to simply advance to playoff rounds, considering they were up against tough American competition – defeated Coast to Coast, a team from Missouri, 4-1 in the championship game.

Prior to that win, the Warriors edged California’s Revision Vanquish 3-2 in semifinals; Koch scored the winning goal in that contest, to send his team to the title game.

In four earlier games – played over two days – the Westcoast squad defeated the Tour Bordercats (Michigan), Mission Bauer (California), Tour Scorpions (Floriday) and the Tour Roadrunners (New York).

Additionally, Koch placed second in the sniper event at the tourney’s skills competition, where he competed for best shot against other North American players.
