The Nelson pee wees celebrate.

Nelson pee wees off to Quesnel

Rep squad scores West Kootenay playoff title against Castlegar

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.
