The Nelson Pee Wee Reps will challenge for the West Kootenay playoff championship after disposing of Rossland/Trail in the semi-finals on Thursday night at the Nelson CIvic Centre.

With the series tied 1-1, the favourite Nelson came into the game needing to win to face Castlegar in the finals.

Both teams battled hard for the first half of the game and the score reflected the even play at 0-0. Midway though the second period Kaslo import Avery Enns broke the deadlock to give the home side a 1-0 lead.

Though Rossland-Trail battled hard, it was a lead Nelson would not relinquish on its way to the 4-2 victory that included an empty net goal by Enns late in the third period.

The West Kootenay finals start next week in Castlegar.
