Semiahmoo Ravens busy during holidays

The Semiahmoo Peninsula was a hotbed for minor hockey over the Christmas holidays, as the Semiahmoo Minor Hockey Association hosted not one, but two, separate tournaments between Christmas and New Year's.

At South Surrey Arena, the Semiahmoo Atom 'C' Xmas Challenge was held from Boxing Day until Dec. 29, while the association's Peewee 'C' Xmas Challenge wrapped up Dec. 30 at Centennial Arena. Both tournaments were 12-team events, with teams from across the Lower Mainland taking part.

Other Semiahmoo Ravens squads were busy last week, too.

The peewee A2 Ravens were taking part in a tournament in Chilliwack, while Semiahmoo's three midget 'A' squads took part in the prestigious Richmond International Midget Hockey Tournament, which wrapped up Dec. 31 and featured teams from all across Western Canada and the United States.

The Surrey Eagles also played a regular-season BC Hockey League game Dec. 29, against the Cowichan Valley Capitals, at Richmond's Minoru Arena as part of the tournament.

Through three games in Richmond's AAA division, the Ravens' A1 team was a perfect 3-0 – with victories over the Prince George Cougars, California Golden Bears and California Wave U18s, while the A2 and A3 teams competed in the Midget AA division, alongside teams from Colorado, Nanaimo, Portland, Alaska and Los Angeles, among others.

The A2 Ravens were also 3-0 through the first three contests, while the A3 team was 2-1.
