“We haven’t lost since November so the team is just on a tear,” said the team’s head coach Liam O’Brien who went on to address the point disparity. “As the season progressed we just continued to really outshoot most teams, almost by double.”

Next the team will be competing in the provincial playoffs next weekend in Kelowna.
