Seven other Bulldogs players contributed to the offensive effort as well, team manager Stefanie Weber said.

The Bantam As head to West Kelowna March 16–21 for the Tier 3 finals.

The Bantam B Bulldogs have a bye into the Tier 4 provincial championship in Windermere later this month.

The Midget As earned their provincial berth last weekend with a pair of home-and-home 6-2 victories over Sooke.
