The Thompson Okanagan Lakers will head to north to Prince George this weekend for the B.C. Female Midget AAA League semifinal.

Games 1 and 2 of the best-of-three series against the Northern Cougars will go Saturday at 10:15 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

A third game if necessary will be played Sunday at 11:30 a.m. The Cougars (25-3-2) finished first during the regular season, while the Lakers (12-13-5) were fourth. Thompson Okanagan went 1-5 against the Cougars this season.

The Lakers earned a spot in the semis with a 2-1 series win over the Vancouver Island Hurricanes last weekend in Enderby.

T.O won the opener 2-1 on Friday, with West Kelowna’s Riley Henderson assisting on both goals.

After a 2-0 loss the Hurricanes Saturday, the Lakers rebounded in the deciding game for a 1-0 win. Henderson assisted on Ali Roine’s game winner. Syndey Carter earned the shutout in the Lakers’ net.
