Dauphin, Canada

Dauphin's Cody Coombs had quite the weekend as he backstopped the Dauphin Peewee AA Kings to a Provincial Championship.

The team ended up beating Flin Flon, 4-3 in the final.

"It feels absolutely amazing," said Coombs. "Our team has worked very hard all year. Our team's won a few tournaments this year, but this one was definitely the most special."

The Kings ended up going 4-0 in the tournament, which included a thrilling semifinal win over Steinbach.

"Our team's been together for a while, so our chemistry was pretty high," said Coombs. "We always work really hard, and our coaching staff works very hard to prepare us for the games."

Coombs played in all but one of the team's games at the tournament and was spectacular going 3-0, and he was at his best in the final against Flin Flon.

The 12-year-old made some big saves to preserve the victory for the team.

"It was definitely a little nerve-racking playing in the finals," said Coombs. "But, at the same time, it just felt so good to play in the gold medal game."

Cody is back on the ice tonight at the Rotary Arena.
