Josh Novakowski, Owen Powers, Trey Thomas and Zack Herrick added singles in the win, while Trevor Woodward picked up the victory between the pipes.

Next, facing the eventual champions, Smithers, Williams Lake lost a 3-1 decision. The game went scoreless through two periods and was tightly contested throughout. Smithers potted two late goals before Williams Lake cut the deficit to 2-1, however, Smithers sealed the deal late in the final frame.

Daine Dubois scored the lone marker for Williams Lake, while Hayden Lyons was in net for the loss.

Next, Williams Lake took on Kamloops, spreading the scoring in a 5-2 come-from-behind victory.

In its final round robin game the Timberwolves, knowing they needed a win to have a chance of qualifying for the finals, came out flying in a 7-1 win over North Delta.

Up 4-0 after one period, Williams Lake never looked back.

Paynton (2-2-4), Thomas (1-2-3), Novakowski (2-1-3), Lane Wycotte (1-0-1) and Nohr (1-0-1) scored for the Wolves, while Dylan Sellars, Benedet and Mitchell Labossiere each contributed two assists. Woodward picked up the win in goal.
