BC Boys Provincial Championships: Day One

We are hours away from the senior boy’s Provincial Championships at the Langley Events Centre, and there’s a lot of action to cover.

Starting Wednesday, BC’s top stars and quality programs will head into battle to claim their respective tier championships. 

Here you’ll find what games you should check out on a jam-packed day at the LEC.

The 4A boys dazzled the Province last year in a roaring finish which saw Burnaby South outlast the Semiahmoo Totems. The Totems are back this season to finish the job and claim the 4A title.

Semiahmoo has been phenomenal this season, capturing the South Fraser Zone title and capping off their regular-season dominance.

Cole Bekkering, Andre Juco and Torian Lee have been incredible. They look to add a provincial title to a historic season for the Semiahmoo program.

Semiahmoo kicks off the 4A action against Mount Baker at 8:30 AM in the Arena Bowl.

Terry Fox versus West Vancouver should be on everyone’s radar, as the 8th and 9th-seeded teams will set the crowd on fire in an intense matchup.

Sea to Sky all-star Finn Chapman from West Van will go toe-to-toe with the Fraser North MVP Sukhraj Garcha. The 8th & 9th seed games across all tiers will bring the heat, and this 4A battle will be a treat for fans.

Elgin Park is making the leap to 4A this season, drawing 13th.

They’re no ordinary 13th seed, as last year, backed by a fantastic defensive showing from Lucas Egiitto, Elgin Park finished 2nd in 3A. Look for them to surprise many in their matchup with St. Georges at 10:15 AM.

Squads will always fly under the radar at the Provincials, and 3A features two great programs that have been battle-tested, winning their league playoffs before the provincials.

Those two are the North Delta Huskies seeding 6th and the 8th seed A.R. MacNeill Ravens.

The Ravens bring three league all-stars and an MVP in Josh Mayan.

Both squads are a threat with a high-intensity type of play.

King George will be an exciting team to watch this year, coming into Provincials as the 2nd seed in 2A.

The Dragons look poised to win it all, backed by the brilliance of 10th-grade high flyer Dionycius Bakare.
