The Okanagan Rockets were agonizingly close in both games against the Vancouver North West Giants.
In the end, the Rockets were eliminated in straight games by the Giants in the best-of-three B.C. Major Midget League quarterfinal series.
I would like to thank the @OkanaganRockets and @CoachBlais for a great two years. I can truly say the two years I have played under them made me the player I am now. They gave me a great chance and believed in me always. Can’t thank them enough. Great organization #rocketstrong
