The minor league Alberni Valley Blazers mined gold last weekend.

The Blazers won the Division C Provincial Championship with a 7-4 victory over the  Abbotsford 96’s to take the final.

The only game that the Blazers lost was a  tight one against an earlier tilt Abbotsford,8-7, which forced them into a game against Langley, whom they beat 9-2.

This brought them face to face against Abby again.

The Blazers took a comfortable lead then Abby came back to tie it up. Although the girls where tired and a few hurting they came back again to clinch the gold.

The top finalists, AV Blazers, Abbotsford 96’s and bronze was Langley Bandits.
