For Immediate Release

October 15, 2021

Saanichton, B.C. – Another weekend is here which means it’s time for some more BCEHL action! This weekend will see 32 teams in action and some high-profile matchups. After last weekend’s U15 AAA Invitational Tournament the teams are ready to get started again, let’s have a look at what’s coming up!

U18 Female AAA

The Fraser Valley Rush jumped into first place in the league and remain perfect on the season with six wins after sweeping the Northern Capitals last time out. The Thompson-Okanagan Lakers are riding a three-game winning streak after taking down the Greater Vancouver Comets twice last weekend. Ava Petty of the Lakers had a four point weekend (2g-2a), she will lead her team into a matchup with the Vancouver Island Seals beginning on Saturday.

U18 AAA

The standings remain tight in the U18 AAA league, but it’s the Vancouver NW Hawks who have the slim advantage at the top of the standings after sweeping the Thompson Blazers last weekend. Only four points separate first in the league and 10th, so everything can shift this weekend.
