It will be an all-Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association (PCAHA) match-up in the gold medal game at B.C. Hockey’s U18 Tier 2 Provincial Championships at the Ladner Leisure Centre.

Defending champion South Delta Storm will look to cap a perfect run on home ice when they take on the Cloverdale Colts at 8 p.m.

It was back on Sunday morning when the Storm and Colts squared off in round-robin Group B play in what proved to be the host’s toughest test so far in the nine-team tournament.

A goal from blueliner Thomas Cowan in the late stages of the third period sealed a 3-1 Storm win.

South Delta went on to outscore its next three round-robin opponents (Williams Lake, Greater Trail and Fort St. John) by a 22-7 margin to win the group, then cruised to a 6-0 victory over Penticton Wednesday morning in the semi-finals.

The Colts would not lose again, defeating the same teams in preliminary play, then getting past PCAHA rival Sea-to-Sky Bears 3-1 in the other Wednesday semi-final.

South Delta and Cloverdale also met back in early March in the PCAHA Final Four Tier 2 Playoffs with the Storm prevailing 7-1 en route to capturing the banner.


Owen Venier scored twice in South Delta’s semi-final win. Brady MacDonald earned the shutout.

Penticton and Sea-to-Sky will meet in Wednesday’s bronze medal game at 5 p.m.
