Despite finishing more than 20 points behind in regular season standings, the Kootenay Wild gave Greater Vancouver Comets everything they could handle before losing two straight in semi final action of the BC Hockey Female AAA League Playoffs.

The Comets squeaked out a pair of one-goal victories to sweep the Wild 2-0 in the best-of-three playoff this past weekend in Coquitlam.

The Coments opened with a 2-1 victory Friday as Jenn Gardiner scored the winner less than a minute into the third period.

Michaela Read scored the other goal for Greater Vancouver while Nelson’s Kelsey Paterson replied for Kootenay.

Greater Vancouver then clinched the series as Gardiner once again scored the winner Saturday.

Rebecca Clarke and Stefanie Wallace also scored for the Coments.

Reece Hunt of Nelson and Lisa du Toit replied for Kootenay.

Greater Vancouver now meets Northern Capitals in the league final beginning Friday in Coquitlam. The Capitals defeated Fraser Valley Rush in the other semi final series played in Prince George.
