A full house at Pearkes Arena watched the final game, and as reported on the Saanich Predators website: “Needless to say, this was the outcome all players chasing their hockey dream were looking for. As ownership, we are extremely proud of each of them and their devoted coaching staff. The work ethic and commitment to teamwork instilled in the players both on and off the ice by Cody, Shawn and Trevor was resoundingly clear.

“In addition, we truly value the passion and dedication shown by our ‘off-ice’ team.  Without them and our many valued community partners, we would not be here today.”
