MINOR HOCKEY REPORT
The City Furniture bantams bowed out of the playoff picture following an 8-4 loss to Ashcroft on home ice Saturday. All of Merritt’s scoring took place in the second period with Travis Mosley (2), Adam Tippe and Nathan Jarvis finding the back of the net.
The NVIT midgets swept their second round best-of-three playoff series with Logan Lake on the weekend, winning 12-0 on Saturday and 4-2 Sunday. In the opener on home ice, it was Amrit Ahuja with the shutout, while Dakota Cox picked up a hat trick to lead all Merritt scorers. Other local marksmen were Tristan Couture and Thomas Manuel (two each), Sadie Colter, Skyler McLeod, JR Stirling, Donovan Charters and Devan Van Unen. In the second contest, Van Unen and Stirling scored again, as did Stephanie Tourand and Kirra Racine.
The NVIT midgets have qualified for the OMAHA championships, slated for Penticton the weekend of March 9-11.
