Fraser Valley Jets win B.C. women’s hockey championship

Led by local star Kelsey Firkus, the Jets blanked four foes on their way to the title.

Three local players helped the Fraser Valley Jets capture a provincial hockey championship in Hope last weekend.

The Jets are a team that plays in the South Coast Women’s Hockey League.

Amanda Christie, Kelsey Firkus and Hunter Joseph hail from the Chilliwack/Agassiz region and Firkus scored one of the Jets goals in their title-clinching win.

The Jets took down the Kamloops Vibe Sunday at the Hope and District Rec. Centre, taking top spot in a six-team tournament that also included the South Fraser TNT, Richmond Devils, Meadow Ridge Moose and North Shore Rebels.

The Jets rolled through provincials without surrendering a single goal.

They started with a 4-0 shutout of the Devils, with Firkus scoring.

She produced one goal and two assists in a 3-0 win over the South Fraser TNT and collected another two points (one goal, one assist) in a 2-0 semi-final rematch with the same opponent.

Christie set up her goal.

“Winning our second championship in a row was of course an incredible moment but winning in front of the Hope community that came together and helped put on a excellent tournament made it that much more special,” she said.
