Three Fernie girls are currently doing battle in Invermere to keep their dreams of being selected to play hockey for Team BC alive.

The 2012 under 18 BC Cup finishes on Sunday after five days of matches.

Cori-Anne Husiman, Rhylynn Fowler and Taylor Caravetta won a place at the camp following zone tryouts on Easter weekend.

A total of 100 players from around the province have been selected from various zone camps to compete at the U18 BC cup.

The U18 BC Cup is the second stage of the program, bringing the players together in a five team, jamboree style tournament. During the BC Cup players will be evaluated and selections will be made for invitations to the Team BC Provincial Camp that will take place May 17 to 20 in Salmon Arm.

Following that camp, selected athletes will advance to eventually form Team BC which will compete in the 2012 National U18 Championship in Dawson Creek.
