Bantam – Division 1
Game 1: Kamloops Jardine Blazers 4 – Prince George Cougars 3
- Peyton Kelly broke open a 1-1 early in the 3rd period with a pair of goals and then added his hat-trick later in the period as the eventual GWG in moving the Blazers to 1-0-0. Jarrod Semchuk scored the other Kamloops while highly touted and ranked 03 prospect Logan Stankoven picked up 1 assist. For Prince George, Alex Ochitwa and Fischer O’Brien each had 1-1-2.
Game 2: Burnaby Minor Bulldogs 10 – Nanaimo Clippers 4
- Kaidan Johnson continues his somewhat under the radar big season with 4-2-6 in leading his Burnaby club to a convincing 10-4 victory. Johnson is a player we believe deserve more recognition. Thomas Vela scored 2 goals and Sebastian Pugliese picked up 4 assists. For Nanaimo, Captain Riley Gannon had 3-1-4 in the loss.
Game 3: BWC Bruins 4 – Vernon Vipers 1
- BWC leading scorer Kalen Szeto picked up 1-1-2 while high ranked prospects D – Ryan Helliwell and Kyler Kovich each had a goal in the win. Helliwell, who has verbally committed to US College would be a top 10 pick if committed to the WHL while Kovich should go somewhere in the 3rd round range and will provide a good two-way game for any team who selects him. Szeto is likely to follow in his brothers footsteps and choose the college route but a team could take a late flyer on him. For Vernon, Colby Feist had the lone goal.
Game 4: Kamloops Jardine Blazers 7 – Nanaimo Clippers 4
- The Jardine Blazers move to 2-0-0 while dropping Nanaimo to 0-2-0 after a 7-4 win. Jarrod Semchuk, who we expect to go somewhere in the mid rounds of the draft had 1-3-4 while Peyton Kelly scored his 4th goal in 2 games and added a helper, Ashton Taylor and 03’s Logan Stankoven and D – Owen Barrow each had 1-1-2. For Nanaimo, it was once again Captain Riley Gannon with a big game, putting up 1-2-3, giving him a championship leading 4-3-7 in his first 2 games.
