The Williams Lake Midget Boys Timberwolves advanced in the Cariboo Amateur Hockey Association playoffs after sweeping Quesnel in a best-of-three series during the weekend.
The series win means the Williams Lake has earned a berth at the provincial championships regardless of the results of this weekend’s series against Prince George.
The Timberwolves came out strong in game one and skated to a 5-0 shutout victory by limiting Quesnel to just a few scoring chances.
Dylan Derose was in net for the T-wolves and grabbed the shut-out.
Corey Loring had a big game for the Timberwolves with four points (2G, 2A) with Brett Hare and Cody Swan adding singles.
In the second game Williams Lake once again came out strong and jumped out to a quick lead.
After two periods the Timberwolves led 5-0 and cruised in the third ending up with a 6-3 win.
Lane Wycotte scored a hat trick for the Wolves with Swan, Braeden Boyd and Hare adding singles.
Derose, again, was in net for the win.
The T-wolves now travel to Prince George this weekend for the first two games of the CAHA best of three series final (third game is in Williams Lake on Sunday if required).
As Prince George is hosting this year’s provincial finals they automatically qualify, which means the second place team in the CAHA also qualifies rendering this weekend’s series essentially meaningless, except for bragging rights going into the provincial finals.
