The Northern Capitals of the B.C. Hockey Female Midget AAA League swept a three-game series with the host Vancouver Island Seals. The Capitals won 6-1 on Friday, 4-0 on Saturday and 4-0 on Sunday. With the victories, the Caps elevated their record to 17-10-2-0 and gave themselves a chance to finish the regular season in second place. They’re in a battle with the Fraser Valley Rush (16-9-2-0) for that spot. And, in a nice piece of scheduling, the Capitals and Rush will play a tripleheader in Prince George next weekend. Games are scheduled for Friday at 6:15 p.m., Saturday at 6 p.m. and Sunday at 8:30 a.m., all at Kin 2.
The Capitals have a two-point lead on the third-place Rush. Fraser Valley has two games in hand, but those games are against the first-place Greater Vancouver Comets, who have only lost once all season (26-1-0-0).
Meanwhile, the minor midget Cariboo Cougars (24-5-1-0) are in first place in their league, two up on the second-place Okanagan Rockets (23-6-0-1). The Cats will complete their 32-game regular season next weekend with home games against the sixth-place Vancouver Northwest Hawks (11-14-3-0). Games will be played at Kin 2, with opening faceoffs set for 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. on Sunday.
