Hockey teams capture medals at Idaho Winter Games

Sun Valley ice hockey teams earned silver and bronze medals during last weekend's Winter Games of Idaho Adult Hockey competition run by Boise Parks and Recreation on Idaho Ice World rinks in Boise.

In the Men's C Division, the Sun Valley Chiefs went 4-1 and won the silver medal. The Chiefs won their preliminary games 4-0, 6-3, 3-0 and 1-0 before dropping the championship game 3-2 to the Boise's Kodiaks.

Taking the silver medal in the Women's Division were the Sun Valley Twisters with a 2-1-1 record.

The Twisters tied McCall #1 by a score of 1-1 Friday, won 3-2 over McCall #2, lost to eventual silver medal winner Black Widows of Boise 2-1, and beat McCall #1 again, this time 5-2 for the bronze on Sunday.

Another Sun Valley squad in the Men's C Division was the Sun Valley Wolfpack (0-3). The 'Pack lost 5-3 to Seidl Homes of Boise, fell 5-4 to the Ice Rays and lost 6-0 to the Moose.

In the Men's B Division, the Ketchum Rangers (1-2) lost their opener 4-1 to the Buzzards then beat eventual silver medallist Title One of Boise 4-2. But the Rangers couldn't keep up the momentum, losing to gold medallist Sundance Dodge of Boise 5-1 in their last game.
