The Northeast BC Predators and Northern Capitals have returned home empty-handed after competing in provincials this weekend.
The U-18 AAA Capitals fell short of a championship this past weekend after losing the game three rubber match 5-1 to the Fraser Valley Rush Sunday in Langley.
The Rush scored just 13 seconds into the game, and scored again before the game was two minutes old. They would add another before the period was done. Jessica Brewer scored the Caps’ lone goal in the second period before the Rush scored another two to seal the championship win.
The Caps’ opened the best-of-three series with a 4-3 win on Friday night. The Rush took a commanding 3-1 lead in the first before the caps scored three straight in the second to seal the comeback win. Dawson Creek’s Hailey Armstrong led the way for the caps with a hattrick.
The Rush then evened the series with a 3-2 win on Saturday. Camryn Ward gave the Caps’ the 1-zip lead in the first before the Rush scored three straight. Brooklyn Hutchings scored mid-way through the third to make things interesting, but the Rush held on for the win.
The first-place Rush skated to a 28-3-1-0 record during the regular season, while the second-place Caps went 22-7-0-3.
In eight head-to-head games between the teams, the Rush won six times, and the Capitals prevailed twice. Two of the Rush victories came in overtime.
Both Northeast BC Predators teams were sent home early at the BC Hockey provincial championships.
The U-18 midget Predators were eliminated after an 11-2 loss to the Nanaimo Impact on March 26th in Richmond.
The U-15 bantam Predators wrapped up their provincial run the same day after an 11-0 defeat to Castlegar in Kelowna.
The U-13 Northern Capitals made it to the bronze medal game against Kamloops, losing 7-2 to finish fourth.
