The Terrace bantam rep girls hockey team dominated at local zones, earning the right  to represent the region in provincials.

Held at the Terrace Sportsplex, it was Terrace and Houston facing off for the northwest zone championship title on Feb.18.

In a best-of-three scenario, Terrace swept the first two games, winning 3-0 in the first game and 1-0 in the  second.

Coach Mario Desjardins said it was an exciting weekend of hockey. “Houston’s team improved a lot from when we saw them last in Prince George,” he said, noting the team reminded him of Terrace’s team last year.

Provincials will be held in Victoria March 18 – 21.

Desjardins said the team has an excellent chance at finishing in the top three in the province.

“This year we have a good offensive and defensive team, with quality goaltending from both of our goalies,” he said.

Desjardins said it was nice to earn the provincial berth this season through a win, as opposed to last year, when the team went to provincials on a bye, due to a lack of competition.

“Having another team in the north is a great sign for the development of female hockey in our area,” he said
