The Wenatchee Wild used a shootout to earn a semifinal berth, while the Chilliwack Chiefs assured themselves of a Saturday spot of their own with a shut out win Tuesday at the 2018 RBC Cup.

WENATCHEE WILD 3, OTTAWA JR. SENATORS 2 (SO)
Matt Dorsey scored in regulation time and before adding the winner in Round 5 of the shootout to give the Wild an extra-time victory over the Jr. Senators on Tuesday afternoon, helping the Pacific Region champions stay unbeaten and earn a spot in the semifinals.

It was just the second shootout in the history of Canada’s National Junior A Championship – the West Kelowna Warriors edged the Trenton Golden Hawks 4-3 at the 2016 tournament in Lloydminster, Alta.

“Throughout the playoffs we had games like that where it was just tough, tight games. This team has great character; we never give up no matter what the score is. We’re always going to the very last minute and if you beat us, then so be it, because you beat our best effort. This team just battles so hard.”
-- Austin Park, Wenatchee Wild

CHILLIWACK CHIEFS 2, WELLINGTON DUKES 0
Daniel Chenard was terrific in a 26-save performance, including 12 saves in a busy third period, backstopping the Chiefs to a win over the Dukes on Tuesday night and a berth in the semifinals.

Will Calverley and Corey Andonovski scored the goals for the Chiefs, who have earned points in all three games (overtime loss, overtime win, regulation win). It is the 15th consecutive year the host team has qualified for the weekend; the last to miss out on the semifinals was Charlottetown in 2003.

“As far as our game plan, not a lot has changed. Obviously with [nine] weeks off you get a little rust on your stick. We’re getting past that point now, we’re coming out of our zone a lot cleaner, and I think that’s helped a lot. We’re all really excited. We still have a game against Steinbach, and we want to win that so we can be the highest seed we can be. Everyone is feeling really good right now.”
-- Harrison Blaisdell, Chilliwack Chiefs
