The Okanagan Rockets remain in the thick of the playoff hunt in the B.C. Major Midget League after sweeping a weekend set from the last-place Thompson Blazers.

Thanks to a pair of less-than-pretty 3-1 wins at the Capital News Centre, the Rockets (12-15-3) are just two points back of the Northeast Chiefs for the sixth and final post-season berth.

On Saturday, Alex Gillies, Alex Jewell and Mitchell Cook, into an empty net, scored for Okanagan, while Adam Todd stopped 17 shots for his seventh win of the season.

On Sunday, David London, T.J. Dumonceaux and Mat Lambert scored the Rockets goals, with Todd earning his second win of the weekend in net.

The Rockets failed to scored on five power play chances over the weekend, but were solid when shorthanded as they killed off all 10 of the Blazers power play chances.

The Rockets will travel to Prince George this weekend for a pair of games against the Cariboo Cougars.

Cariboo is currently fourth in the BCMML at 21-10-3.
