A dominant win was mirrored by a dominant performance by Jakob Henry who simply couldn’t miss for most of the game almost single-handedly outscoring Kitamaat.

Prince Rupert: John Sampson (17), Gage Ladouceur (13), Glen Blandov (13)

Kispiox: Jesse Olson (14), Chad Wilson (9), Roy Wilson (6)

The Prince Rupert Grizzlies were the recipient of a favourable matchup as the reigning runners up Hydaburg weren’t able to make the tournament, the fifth-place team from the qualifying tournament was asked on short notice to join. The Grizzlies carried the play most of the game with last year’s Intermediate MVP John Sampson leading the way. Kudos to Kispiox for coming in on short notice and putting up a fight against one of the strongest teams in the senior division. Since the joined this year’s tournament and the way the bracket works out Kispiox will automatically have a spot in next years tournament. The Grizzlies get a one day break and will face the inner of Squamish VS. Skidegate.
