The Terrace bantam rep girls hockey team will be facing off for provincial gold tonight as it advances into the finals at the 2012 female hockey bantam provincials in Victoria.

Terrace took on Vancouver’s North Shore team at 11 a.m. in the semi-finals and won 3-2 in what coach Mario Desjardins said was a super exciting game.

Terrace had a 2-0 lead going into the second period, before North Shore took advantage of a power play and brought the score to 2-1. Terrace answered back before the end of the period and scored, bringing the teams into the third with 3-1 on the scoreboard.

Nine minutes into the third, North Shore scored again, but Terrace managed to hang on to its one point lead to win the game, and advancement rights.

Terrace will now face off against Prince George at 8 p.m. tonight for provincial gold.

The win brings the team’s provincial record to three wins, on tie and a loss.

Game one was on Sunday and was the team’s only loss so far against Kelowna 2-0.

The next day Terrace swept Cranbrook 4-0, with Sage Desjardins scoring twice and Bailey Kasum and Myah Bowel each putting one in the net.

Game three was a 5-5 tie against Surrey, played at 7:30 a.m. yesterday, with Ashley Kuehne scoring twice and Kasum, Desjardins and Rachel Biddings each netting a goal.

The fourth game was last night at 8 p.m. and saw Terrace edge out North Vancouver 4-1, with goals coming from Erin Rose, Cassandra Hogman, Kasum and Kuehne.

“Terrace had their best game, and the girls stepped up to the challenge and dominated all of the third period,” said coach of the team, Mario Desjardins of the fourth game.
