TCHL – Second finalist decided tonight

It will take one more game to determine which teams will skate in Thursday’s Trail Commercial Hockey League final.

Tonight, Rex Hotel and OK Tire meet in the third and deciding game of their best-of-three series.

Game time is 7:15 p.m. at the Cominco Arena.

The winner will meet Re/Max in Thursday’s final.

Re/Max booked its spot in the title game after completing a two-game sweep against Firebird on Sunday.

Six goals in the first period catapulted Re/Max to an 8-5 victory.

Graham Proulx led the way with two goals and two assists. Jason Kucher had a pair for Firebird.

Re/Max won the opening game last Thursday by a 3-1 count with Mark Hutchinson collecting a pair of goals.

Meanwhile, Darrin Kissock’s third-period goal provided the difference in OK Tire’s 3-2 win over Rex Hotel in their opening game last Thursday.

However, Rex rebounded on Sunday led by Jim Maniago’s four-point effort to even the series with a 5-3 victory.

That sets the stage for the deciding game tonight. Thursday’s final will also be played at the Cominco Arena beginning at 7:15 p.m.
