FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Senior Flyers have qualified for the NPHL finals.

With Grande Prairie’s 7-6 win over Dawson Creek Saturday night, both teams are now eliminated from the NPHL West Division playoffs.

The Flyers will get ready for the NPHL Finals against either the Falher Pirates or the High Prairie Regals.  The Pirates lead that series 2-0.  The first game will be played March 3 in Fort St. John at the North Peace area.

Since there were only three teams left in the western division of the NPHL, the Flyers, Canucks and A’s, played a round-robin series with each team playing up to eight games.  The top team would advance to the NPHL final.

Saturday, March 3 – Game 1 – East Champ at FSJ Flyers
