Two hockey players from Cloverdale returned from Sydney, Nova Scotia with silver medals after helping Team Pacific to a second-place finish at the 10-team World Under-17 Challenge.

Forward Tyler Soy and defenceman Parker Wotherspoon were in the lineup for Team Pacific (B.C. and Alberta), one of five regional teams from Canada playing against five national teams.

Team Pacific opened with a 4-3 loss to Quebec, then won three straight games to finish atop Group A in the round robin. Team Pacific stopped the West 6-3, topped the Czech Republic 4-1 and defeated Sweden 3-1.

In a semifinal game against Russia, Team Pacific got past Russia 7-3. They lost the final 4-0 to the United States.

Soy, a member of the Victoria Royals of the Western Hockey League (WHL), finished the tournament with two goals and three assists in six games played.

He has nine goals and 17 points in 27 games with the Royals.

Wotherspoon, after collecting three assists for Team Pacific, will rejoin the WHL’s Tri-City Americans where he has six assists in 34 games played.
