The Rockets will play the Fraser Valley Phantom in the B.C. Female Midget AAA League championship series

For the third year in a row, the Thompson Okanagan Rockets will play for the B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League title.

The Rockets will visit the Fraser Valley Phantom this weekend in the best-of-three championship series.

All games will be played at the Langley Sportsplex, with Game 1 on Friday, Game 2 Saturday and a third, if needed, on Sunday.

The Rockets (15-9-4), who finished second behind the Phantom (24-2-2) during the regular season, won once and tied one in five meetings against Fraser Valley this season.

“We had some close games with them this year, so I expect that’s how it’s going to be this weekend,” said Rockets coach Mark Elder. “We hope we can make it three in a row.”

Thompson Okanagan advanced to the final with a 2-0 series win over the Vancouver Fusion last weekend.

On Friday, Kennedy Kneller and Jesse Keca scored in a 2-1 victory over Vancouver.

On Saturday, Cora Sutton and Colby Williams scored the goals in another 2-1 victory as solid goaltending kept the Fusion in both games.

“We got the lead in both games and that was enough for us to win,” Elder said. “Their goaltending was very good, so the girls just had to grind it out.”

The winner of the B.C. title will take on the Alberta champion in the Pacific zone playoff.
