Ball hockey champs crowned
Three one-goal games, another one decided by two goals and three shutouts, were the final results of the Valley Ball Hockey Association’s championship finals.
The finals for the VBHA’s six age groups — which determined who would represent the league at this week’s provincial championships — were played at the George Preston Recreation Centre on Saturday.
The PN1 Warriors defeated the PN2 Vipers 3-2 in the peanut final, while the PU6 Penguins won by that same score over the PU5 Cobras in the pup final.
In the peewee final, the PW3 Green Pigs prevailed 3-1 over the PW8 Predators.
The MN7 Assassins silenced the MN 3 Bruisers 4-0 in the minor final and the MJ10 Blazers burned the MJ6 Warriors 3-0 in the major final.
And in the junior final, it was a 3-2 victory for JN5 over the JN2 Whalers.
The Warriors, Penguins and Green Pigs will compete at the provincial tournament in Langley this week, with games to be played at the Preston Centre. It wraps up on Saturday at the Preston Centre.
The Assassins, Blazers and JN5 will compete in Ridge Meadows.
The MJ10 Blazers won the VBHA major division title with a 3-0 win over the MJ6 Warriors.
