ESTEVAN - Twelve teams were entered at the Estevan Minor Hockey Association's annual U13 house league tournament.

The host Estevan teams – the Wolves, Predators, Storm and Royals – were joined by teams from Weyburn, Regina, Balgonie, Drake-Nokomis, Pense-Grand Coulee and the Quad Town area. Games were played at Affinity Place and the Power Dodge Arena.

The Drake Canucks defeated the Estevan Panthers 6-4 in the gold-medal game. In the bronze match-up, the Estevan Royals edged the Estevan Wolves 4-3.

The 12 teams were divided into four pools of three teams for a round robin. Then they went through the playoffs, with a team's finish in the round robin determining whether they were in the A, B or C event.

The Panthers, Royals and Wolves all finished first in their pool. The Storm were second in their group, and won the bronze medal of the B event with a 6-3 win over the Regina Buffalo.
