Facing Pacific Christian Pacers of Victoria in a win-or-go-home match at the Langley Events Centre, the #12 seed Ice won a hard-fought first game 28-26 only to have the #8 Pacers rally to take the next two games 28-15, 15-9.

Pacific Christian will play #10 Prince Charles Bulldogs of Creston on Saturday morning in the game to decide 9th and 10th place at the 16-team tournament.

On the championship side of the draw, today’s semifinals feature #2 Pacific Academy Breakers of Surrey vs. #6 College Heights Cougars of Prince George and #3 MEI Eagles of Abbotsford vs. #1 Langley Christian Lightning.

On Saturday, the bronze medal game goes at 2 p.m. and the gold medal game at 7 p.m.
