The Fourth team that had qualified Penticton Silver Bullets, chose to withdraw following the death last week of Morton Johnson, who passed following a traffic accident just before the team was set to travel to Quesnel.
From the early action, Quesnel has found the most success, their hard work on the ice qualifying earning them a berth in the Saturday night finale to the Coy Cup Championship.
That after a 6-3 victory over the Dawson Creek Canucks in front of a packed house at the West Fraser Centre.
The sets the stage for tonight when the Canucks and Terrace River Kings are in action for the Coy Cup Semi-final with a 7:30 puck drop.
The River Kings may have the upper hand on their Peace Country rivals, not only have the Canucks just come off a hard hitting affair with the Kangaroos, but the River Kings knocked them off on Wednesday by a score of 6-3.
The Quesnel Kangaroos Social Media stream has featured some of the Coy Cup play through the week, so there may be some live stream snippets to view tonight of the match up.
The Coy Cup wraps up with Saturday's Final which starts at 7:30.
