The Nelson Pee Wee Reps have earned themselves a ticket to Quesnel next month after going the distance with Castlegar in the West Kootenay playoffs.
On Saturday afternoon in Castlegar, Nelson defeated their hosts 7-4 to earn a spot in the Tier III provincials.
In the first-to-four-points series, Nelson got off to a great start last week in game one with a 5-4 win over a Castlegar team that was ranked ahead of the locals after the regular season.
In the second game at the Nelson and District Community Complex, Nelson held a 2-1 lead and the promise of a series win with less than two minutes to go. A late Castlegar goal pushed the series to a third game.
On Thursday night in Castlegar, the pee wee Rebels scored a 7-6 victory to force a final winner-take-all affair.
Saturday’s game was never really in doubt as Nelson powered their way to the provincial berth.
The pee wee provincials will run March 18-23.
