A pair of female hockey players from Surrey was part of Team BC, which placed fourth at the eight-team Under-18 National Championship tournament last week in Dawson Creek.

Defender Stephanie Payne and forward Mackenzie Wong played for Team BC, which lost the bronze medal game 3-2 in overtime to the Ontario Red team.

Team BC won two of three round robin games before falling 4-1 to Manitoba in a semifinal contest.

Wong, who plays for the Fraser Valley Phantom of the BC Hockey Female Major Midget League, had a goal and two assists in five games played. Payne, a member of the Pacific Steelers junior team, had one assist.
