The PCAHA Bantam Tier 1 Final 4 was decided after teams had played just two games at Harry Jerome in North Vancouver, with the #1 ranked host team claiming the banner, and #7 ranked Cloverdale moving through to Provincials as the second PCAHA representative.
There had been several upsets in the preliminary rounds, with #2 Langley, #3 Vancouver Thunderbirds, and #4 Langley failing to advance through the quarterfinals, leaving #1 North Vancouver, #5 Semiahmoo, #6 Chilliwack and #7 Cloverdale as Championship contenders.
As it turned out, North Van’s two wins, 4-1 vs Cloverdale in game 1, and 3-2 vs Chilliwack in game two on Monday, coupled with a 1-1 tie between Semi and Chilliwack, and Cloverdale’s 5-2 win over Chilliwack, would be all that was required to determine who was going to the Provincials.
As a result, the final two scheduled games, between Chilliwack and Cloverdale, and North Van and Semi, were cancelled.
This year North Central (Prince George) is hosting, March 17-21.
