Abbotsford female hockey teams excel at Burnaby tourney

The Abbotsford Female Hockey Association had a great start to tournament play at the Remembrance Day event hosted by the Burnaby Wildcats.

With the 2013 hockey season now in full swing, the Abbotsford Female Hockey Association had a great start to tournament play at the Remembrance Day Tournament hosted by the Burnaby Wildcats.

The Abbotsford Ice bantam girls finished atop in their pool after going 3-0 in round robin play, beating the North Shore Avalanche C2 (7-1), Washington Wild U14 (15-0), and Richmond Ravens C2 (10-0). They were knocked out in the semifinals after a hard-fought 2-0 loss to the Langley Lightening C1. Game MVP’s included Eryn De Jonge, Kasey Knowles, Sarah Klok and goalie Rachel Silveria, who finished the tournament with two shutouts.

The Ice atom girls team also had a great finish to their first tourney, posting a 3-1 record. They beat the North Shore Avalanche (7-4), Burnaby Wildcats (6-3) and Langley Lightening (8-0), with their lone loss against the undefeated Vancouver Angels C1 (6-1). MVP’s included Nikki Kemp, Hailey Maurice, Hailee Dempsey and Bailey Reimer.

Meanwhile, the midget team started off strong with a 2-0-1 record during round-robin play vs. South Delta (3-0), the Washington Wildcats (7-1) and Burnaby (5-5). They beat out Kamloops 3-1 in the semis to gain a spot in the gold medal game vs. Burnaby, where they rallied from a 4-1 deficit to tie it up 5-5 and force a shootout.

The tourney hosts prevailed in the skills competition, though, and the Ice settled for second after suffering their first loss of the season.
