Terrace Midgets secured a shot in the finals this morning, claiming a 4-0 shutout against Squamish.

Despite the gap in the score, it was a tight, solid match for most of the game, with Terrace scooping an empty netter for good measure at the end.

Teams battled back and forth in the first period, but neither one could hook a goal.

About eight minutes into the second, Brandon Onstein hooked the first goal, taking a 1-0 lead for the Terrace Midgets.

Again, the puck sliced back and forth, with both Squamish and Terrace staving off some close chances.

With six minutes left in the second, team captain Gianni Cormano buried a shot in the net, widening the gap 2-0.

Third period was high energy, and halfway through Brad Zagar took possession of the puck and sliced toward the net.

He managed to slap it in from the right side, firing it just past the goalie and team mate Quinn Mulder who stood ready for the rebound.

That put the score 3-0, and while Squamish put up a good fight to the end, Terrace managed to stave them off, hooking a final empty netter to seal the deal 4-0.

The semi-final victory shoots the boys into the finals tonight against Alberni Valley.

Alberni conquered Cranbrook 5-1 in their semi-final match this morning, and won their pool in the round robin.

It’s sure to be an intense match as the two top teams battle for the provincial Midget title.

The game is free to watch, and will launch at 7 p.m. at the Sportsplex.
