The visiting Falher Pirates completed the four-game sweep over the High Prairie Regals and now await the winner of the Grande Prairie Athletics – Fort St. John Flyers series winner in the NPHL Semi-Final.
Dallas Brochu, Darren Kramer and Trevor Mazurek each scored twice while Pat Rowan added the other goal as the Pirates brought out the brooms.
Brandon McNabb and Jacob Anderson replied for HP.
The Pirates dominated the series outscoring HP 37-12 in the four games. FAL won both games in HP by the same 7-2 score.
FAL’s win also locks Dawson Creek into meeting the winner of the Grimshaw – Manning series in the other NPHL Se-Final.
Both semi-final series are tentatively scheduled to begin Feb. 21.
