Two Chilliwack Minor Hockey products competed in the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association's 37th annual scholarship tournament.

Two Chilliwack Minor Hockey products played in the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association’s 2014 Midget Scholarship Tournament, which took place Jan. 19-25 at several Lower Mainland rinks.

Shane Marsden suited up on defence, while Sean Longfellow played forward. Longfellow had an outstanding tourney, scoring six goals in four games as his Fraser Valley Flames advanced to the final. Marsden added steady D and one goal from the blueline.

The Flames went 2-1 in round-robin play with wins over the Greater Vancouver Avalanche and Canucks. Their lone loss came against the Fraser Valley Oilers, the team they’d meet once more in the championship game. It was played Saturday night in North Surrey, with the Oilers winning 4-3.

Post tournament, Longfellow was awarded the Vancouver Canucks Alumni Special Bursary, to help with his post-secondary schooling.

The PCAHA holds five special recognition events each year, promoting the ideals of scholastic achievement and sportsmanship.
