The Eastman Selects, with one more victory, can win their first-ever Manitoba Female Midget Hockey League championship.

Eastman leads the Pembina Valley Hawks two games to one in the best of five championship series. The Selects are in a position to win the championship at home in Ste. Anne when they host the Hawks in game four Wednesday at 7:45 p.m.

The Selects took a huge 2-1 lead on the Hawks with a thrilling 2-1 triple overtime victory Saturday night at Morden as Hayley Johnson tipped in a shot from Camille Enns, two minutes into the third overtime, after Kyle Lesuk had a won a key draw in the Pembina Valley zone.

Eastman finished finished fifth overall in the regular season, while Pembina Valley, the defending champions, were second. On the way to the finals, the Selects have beaten fourth place Yellowhead and then posted a major upset in the semis as they vanquished the top ranked Winnipeg Avros.

In Saturday's marathon triple overtime win, Raygan Kirk made 39 saves to backstop the Selects to victory.

Should a deciding game in the series be required, it will be played Friday, Mar. 30 at 7:30 p.m. at Morden.

The winner of the series will then host the Saskatchewan champions for the right to compete in the Esso Cup National Women's Midget Hockey Championship the last week of April at Bridgewater, N.S.
