Meanwhile, at B.C. boys AAA provincials in Kelowna, both the Earl Marriott Mariners and defending champion Semiahmoo Totems – who beat EMS in the 2010 finals – will be vying for a championship banner.

Both tournaments wrap up Saturday evening, with the girls championship game set for 4:30 p.m. at Handsworth Secondary, and the boys’ final set for 7:45 pm. at the University of B.C.-Kelowna campus.
