Jordan Farmer led the Lakers with 15 points, while Sunny Jhaj had 13. Malcolm Heinrichs led the Hornets with 17 points, while Jashan Khela added 13.

The Hornets will now prepare for their sixth straight provincials, while the Lakers, who finished fourth in Okanagan zone, will face the No. 5 ranked Mt. Boucherie Bears in Kelowna on Thursday.
