The Walnut Grove Gators earned a measure of revenge at the hands of the Riverside Rapids.

In last year's championship game, the Rapids prevailed 7-4.

But Walnut Grove got a second chance against the Coquitlam school and made no mistake this time, winning 4-1 to capture the B.C. High School Hockey League tier 2 provincial hockey championship.

The game was played April 26 at the Planet Ice in Coquitlam.

Danny Lange potted two goals, while Ryan Rensby and Tyler Terry had one goal and one assist apiece.

Austin Bietenbeck, Justin Klimek and Lucas Vampa all chipped in with an assist.

Goaltender Kurt Klimek picked up the win.

The Gators were the top seed after a 4-0-0 regular season which saw them outscore their competition by a combined 33-6.
