The fourth day of the U15 Nationals was a decisive one for our boys and girls. The round robin came to an end and the semifinals will take place in Calgary with three BC teams representing.
On the boys’ National, only BC and Alberta stepped on the field this Friday, as the final game in the pool. The BC boys won by 2-0 and secured first place in the group. Now, they will face Alberta again Saturday morning, at 8:30 am, in the playoffs. Whoever wins, will face the winner between Quebec and Ontario in the final.
Stags and Rams started in the Day 4 Battle of BC. The Islanders needed a win to get a spot in the playoffs, but, after a very even game and a 1-1 tie until the 4th quarter, the Rams managed to score three times in the final period and win by 4-1.
The BC Rams will now play Ontario West in the semifinals. The Stags played again later in the day in the crossover against Ontario East and put on a show, winning by 8-0. Now, they will fight for the 5th place of the Nationals against Alberta, this Saturday.
And last but not least, the BC Lions won their game against PEI by 7-0 and ended as leaders of Pool B with 9 points in 9 possible. In the semifinals, they will clash with Ontario Central. Will we have another BC Battle in the grand final? Hopefully.
