The Fraser Valley Thunderbirds are one of the last teams standing in the B.C. Minor Midget Hockey League playoffs.
The T-Birds dispatched the Cariboo Cougars in a best-of-three series last weekend and will hit the road to face the Okanagan Rockets in the best-of-three league championship series this weekend.
The Rockets (23-4-3-0) finished first overall in the regular season standings and the Thunderbirds (22-6-2-0) were second.
Fraser Valley needed all three games to get past the third place Cougars, and Chilliwackians played a huge role in the series clinching 4-1 win last Sunday at the Matsqui Recreation Centre in Abbotsford.
Dylan Brooks and Luke Wismer picked up two assists each with Lucas Bourdon collecting one helper.
Bourdon had a nice series.
The defenceman scored twice, including the overtime winner in a 3-2 game-two win and also scored in the series opener, a 5-4 loss.
Games this weekend are Saturday, 1 p.m. at the Rutland Arena and Sunday, 3:15 p.m. at the Rutland Arena followed (if necessary) by a Monday match (1:15 p.m.) at Kelowna’s Capital News Centre.
