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.
