Quarter final match ups & results:
A1 Cloverdale Colts 4 vs B2 North Vancouver Storm 1
The Colts roared out of the gate in this one, when Mark Schouten scored unassisted 30 seconds in, and Riley Lanthier added another just past the two minute mark (from Malcolm Livinstonen and Jaron Peck).
The second started the same way with another quick goal by Schouten 1:29 in. Aaron McWilliams got one back for the North Van about the mid-way point (Mario Sever, Kyle Bishop), but Cloverdale’s Josh Nowakowsky would make it 4-1 and finish the scoring at 12:22 of the second (Riley Lanthier, Trevor Townsend).
No shots stats available – Wesley Elingsen got the win for the Colts, while Bryan Sharp took the loss for the Storm.

C1 Vancouver Thunderbird 5 vs D2 Seattle Thunderbird U16 2

There were only two penalties aside, all assessed in the third period.
Jordy Engleson got the win, Erik Garber was in nets for Seattle. Again no shot stats available.

North Shore then turned it up in the second, with four goals, by Cole Moberg, Jerret Raymond, Ben Landon and Carter Berger, to make it 4-1. Penalties were four to NSWC and two to JdF in the period.
There was no scoring in the third but plenty more penalties, with NSWC getting five and JdF four.
