The North Van Wolf Pack will play for a PJHL championship following a 4-1 semifinal series win over the Grandview Steelers.

The Pack wrapped up the series Saturday night at Harry Jerome Arena with a tight 1-0 win over their rivals from Burnaby. Lucas Barker scored the game’s only goal late in the first period and then it was a goalie show the rest of the way, with North Van’s Niklas Hoem making 28 saves for the shutout win while Grandview’s Cale Dolan took the loss despite stopping 45 of the 46 shots he faced. It was the second straight 4-1 series win for the Pack, who topped Ridge Meadows in Round 1 before getting by Grandview in Round 2.
