Consisting of 10 lakecity and two Quesnel players born in 2008, the BC Northern Selects team are proving to be a winning combination.

The Selects just returned from a weekend series in Kamloops where for the first time in years the team posted two wins against the Kamloops Ice Pirates.

The team played three games against their southern rivals, winning the first 3-2, losing the second 5-3 and dominating the third with a final tally of 8-4.

“All the kids have been working really hard to develop their skills and it shows,” said coach Tyrel Lucas.

The team also posted one win and one loss against 100 Mile House earlier in the season and are now setting their sights on a showcase tournament in Burnaby April 24 and 25 to wrap up the season.

The BC Northern Selects are a part of a Spring Hockey League that draws players from across the north.
