Both clubs swept their quarterfinal match ups last weekend.  The Rockets blasted the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds, outscoring them 17-2.  Tyson Jost recorded four goals and four assists, while Liam Findlay collected six points.  The Rockets had eight different scorers throughout the series.

The Hawks took out the Cariboo Cougars in a physical series, outscoring them 9-5.  Davis Koch led the charge with four points (2G+2A), while Matt Bradley also had a four point series (1G+3A).
