The Fraser Valley Jets soared to their first BC Hockey championship Sunday at the Richmond Ice Centre.
Featuring Richmond’s Natasha Steblin, the Jets outscored the Meadow Ridge Moose 7-2 in the final of the South Coastal Women’s Hockey League playoff tournament.
Having lost only twice in 30 regular-season and playoff games, the Jets not only topped the standings, eight points clear of the second-place Moose, but also outscored their opponents 22-5 in posting a 4-0 tournament record.
Richmond’s Natalie May was also prominent in the season-ending tournament, scoring the only goal as South Fraser TNT won the bronze medal in a 1-0 win over defending provincial champion Kamloops Vibe.
TNT eliminated host Richmond Devils with a 3-1 victory on Saturday. The game was tied 3-3 before TNT scored two unanswered goals in the third period.
Trinity Western University Titans also participated in the tournament.
