Kiana Strand of the Kootenay Wildcats earned honourable mention status for the month of February as the B.C. Hockey Female AAA League announced its player of the month award.

Strand, of Invermere, lost out to Megan Spooner of the Prince George Cougars in balloting.

The Cougar netminder, Spooner, scored a shutout of league leading Okanagan Rockets to earn the award.

Tara Bouvette of the Rockets joined Strand in the honourable mention category.

The Wildcats staged a brief rally at the end of the season to secure third place in league standings and a date against the Fraser Valley Phantom in semi final playoff action.

Kootenay travels to the Fraser Valley for a best-of-three series March 18-20.

The teams played to a pair of ties in games last weekend in Nelson.

Meanwhile, Prince George travels to Vancouver Friday to meet the Fusion in quarterfinal action. The winner advances to the semi final against Okanagan.

Semi final winners advance to the league final March 25-27 at the team with the highest regular season standing.
