The Tier 2 Midget Final 4 series features three A1 teams from mid-size communities and one A2 team, from North Shore Winter Club.
Only three games have been played so far. #1 Aldergrove A1 opened with a 6-3 win over #4 Mission A1 in game 1, Friday night. #2 NSWC A2 and #3 Port Moody A1 played to a 2-2 draw on Saturday, with Port Moody scoring on a power play in the final minute. On Sunday, Mission downed NSWC 4-1.
So at the moment, Aldergrove and Mission are tied with two points, and NSWC and Port Moody are tied with 1 point so far.
Both North Shore and Port Moody still have chance to move forward. North Shore will have to win their third game – vs Aldergrove – to keep their hopes alive, and hope for Port Moody to beat both Aldergrove and Mission – which would mean Port Moody would finish first and NSWC second; and the two teams currently.
Numerous other scenarios could also unfold.
The series resumes with Aldergrove vs Pt. Moody on Monday, and all four teams playing their final games Tuesday.
PCAHA Midget Tier 2 –
All Top Seeds in Final 4
It took all four games, but with a 1-0 win over Coquitlam A2 (F2, 6-4-2) on February 25, #4 seeded Mission A1 (F2, 7-8-3) made it a clean sweep for the top seeds in Tier 2 Final 4.
A Coquitlam win would have put the Chiefs in all of the top three midget Final 4s. Their A4s also lost narrowly missed moving on, losing to Surrey A4s on two ties and a loss, which would have made it a home run!
#1 Aldergrove (F2, 14-3-1) downed #9 Semiahmoo (F3, 5-10-3) with 7-6 and 3-2 wins, wrapping up Tuesday, February 23.
#2 NSWC A2 (F2, 8-6-4) won 5-2 and 2-1 vs #7 Ridge Meadows A2 (F3, 6-8-4) on February 16.
#3 Port Moody A1 (F2, 6-8-4) downed #7 Vancouver T-Birds A2 (F3, 6-6-6), 5-1 and 3-2 to advance on February 22.
Tier 2 Final 4 is being hosted at the Aldergrove Community Arena.
The two winners advance to Tier 2 Provincials, hosted by Prince George, March 14-17.
