CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI – The matchups for semi-final Friday have been determined at the 2008 Esso Women’s Nationals.

Team Prince Edward Island finished in first place in the provincial team pool of the eight-team tournament, which this year has been split into two pools. PEI, which went 3-0 in the round-robin, will face New Brunswick (0-2-1-0) in one semi-final of the provincial pool, with Nova Scotia (1-1-0-1) facing Manitoba (1-2-0-0) in the other semi. Both of those games are at 9 a.m. AST at the CARI Complex.

In the club championship pool, the Mississauga Chiefs will take on the Minnesota Whitecaps at 1 p.m. AST (12 p.m. ET) and the defending-champion Calgary Oval X-Treme will face the Brampton Canadette-Thunder at 4 p.m. AST (3 p.m. ET). On Thursday, in the opening games of the club championship, Minnesota defeated Brampton 6-4 and Calgary beat Mississauga X-X.

The winners of the semi-finals in each of the pools will play for their respective tournament titles on Saturday. TSN/RDS, Hockey Canada’s official broadcasters, will televise Saturday’s club championship final live from the Charlottetown Civic Centre at 4 p.m. EST (3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT). Dave Randorf will be joined by Cassie Campbell in the Civic Centre play-by-play booth, with TSN’s Sara Orlesky reporting from ice level.

Also, Hockey Canada and TELUS have partnered up to offer hockey fans live webcasts of all of the games at the 2008 Esso Women’s Nationals that will be played at the CARI Complex. That includes the bronze and gold medal games in the provincial team championship. The webcasts can be seen at www.telushockeycanada.com.

Hockey PEI is playing host to the Esso Women’s Nationals for the fourth time, but this is the first time the event has been held in Charlottetown. Summerside, PEI has played host to the tournament three times.

The Women’s Nationals has been held annually since 1982. It brings together some of the top female hockey players in Canada and the United States.
