Quesnel Kangaroos advance to Coy Cup Final

The Quesnel Kangaroos are off to the BC Senior Hockey Championship game after a comfortable 6-3 win over the Dawson Creek Canucks at the West Fraser Centre on Thursday night.

The Roos jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the opening period.

Brett Mero opened the scoring on a nice feed from Paul Girodat early in the opening frame.

Eric Galbreath then made it 2-0 on a slap shot into the top corner with the Roos on a two man advantage.

Girodat, who found the fountain of youth in this game, then capped off an impressive    opening 20 minutes with a goal on a wrist shot from the slot.

Quesnel wasted little time making it 4-0 in the second period as Galbreath cashed in on his second of the night on a nice feed from Tommy Grant in the opening minute.

Dawson Creek finally managed to beat Roos goalie Alex Wright about four minutes into the middle period.

Girodat responded for Quesnel a few minutes later banging in a rebound to give Quesnel a commanding 5-1 lead.

Dawson Creek would then make it 5-2 before the end of the second period.

It was a chippy third period with not a lot of scoring or flow.

Lane Vandewetering scored midway through the third period to put this one out of reach if there was any doubt.

Girodat picked up a helper to finish off a three point night.

Dawson Creek scored one late to make it a 6-3 final.

The Canucks will now take on Terrace tomorrow (Friday) night at 7-30 in the semi-finals.

The winner will play the Roos in the final on Saturday night.
