The Port Coquitlam Ridge Meadows Ringette Association won silver at the provincials in Prince George over the weekend U-14A.
The team had a league record of 13-2-0 and were the Lower Mainland champions.
They opened the provincials against a tough Kelowna team they had never beaten, and triumphed 6-5 over the Thompson-Okanagan champs.
Their second game was a 5-4 loss to Fraser Valley.
Game three brought a 6-4 win over Vernon. No other teams in the provincials beat either Kelowna or Vernon.

This time Kelowna had the best of a 7-3 victory.
