The Thompson-Okanagan Lakers have seen eough of the first-place Greater Vancouver Comets until at least 2017.

The Comets improved to 18-0 by sweeping the Lakers three times – all by 5-2 scores – in B.C. Midget AAA Female Hockey League play last weekend in Vernon.

Jenn Gardiner of the Comets opened the scoring midway through the first 20 minutes Sunday at Priest Valley Arena, but Chanreet Bassi equalized (assisted by Laine Grace and Jenna Fletcher, both of Vernon) a minute later.

Naomi Choong produced two goals 19 seconds apart and Emma Hall made it 4-1 Lakers with 32 seconds left in the second period.

Choong completed the hat trick early in the third before Elizabeth Lenardon (Mairyn Tucker of Armstrong, Elizabeth Klimm) added one for the Lakers.

Rebecca Clarke and Choong gave the Comets a 2-0 first-period lead Saturday at Kal Tire Place.

The teams swapped deuces in the middle frame with Bassi (from Bantam call-ups Cassidy Stasiuk and Tessa Kosec) and Sydney Neustaeter (Winfield) on the powerplay from the point (from Klimm) clicking for the Lakers.

The Lakers took a 2-1 lead into the third period Friday night at Kal Tire Place on snipes by Vernon’s Anne Cherkowski and Laine (from Vernon’s Samantha Head and Klimm).

The Lakers are 6-7-5 and tied for second with the Northern Capitals. The Lakers host Stratford Ontario’s St Michael’s Academy Thursday, Dec 29 at 1:45 p.m. and Dec. 30 at 4:45 p.m., both at Kal Tire Place.

The Lakers resume league play Jan. 13 against the Caps at Planet Ice in Delta.
