The Terrace Midget Rep Kermodes are on their way to Midget Tier 3 provincials after two decisive wins against Prince Rupert in the best-of-three northwest zone final.

The first game on Saturday, Feb. 22 saw them pull out all of the stops offensively to win 9-1.

And the onslaught didn’t let up later that day – with a 10-2 win at home, they are officially zone champs.

They’ll now head to 100 Mile House over spring break to compete against some of the best in the province – and coach Dave Jephson says he is expecting big things from the team.

Meanwhile, the Peewees looked poised to go to provincials following a season that saw them win every tournament they entered before taking the league championship.

But they fell to Vanderhoof on the road, losing 2-1 and 3-2.

“We ran into a perfect storm and lost,” said co-coach Kevin Marleau. “Such a disappointing end to what was an incredible season.”
