Royal Liberty pupil Brad Windebank and the England under-13s were bidding to keep their World Pee-Wee Championship dream alive in Canada in the early hours of this morning.

The squad were due to play last-16 rivals Megeve in Quebec’s Pepsi Colisee at 8.30pm local time, having already beaten Delemont Fantomes (9-1) and Beauce-Centre Baroudeurs in the International C division.

And if successful they will face Montmagny or Victoriaville tonight (Friday).

The touring party, which included former Romford Raiders defenceman Ben Pitchley as assistant coach, began their preparations with a 4-1 challenge match win over Ste-Foy Gouverneurs, before losing 5-3 to the junior team from the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche.

And they skated to a 2-0 victory over Team Wendy before the main event began.

An outdoor match against New Brunswick Pioneers ended in a 6-1 success and England have also beaten Rouyan Noranda (7-1), Grenoble (5-4) and Quebec Ouest (8-0) in exhibition matches to date.
