The Williams Lake Midget Female Timberwolves blasted off to a perfect start to its Cariboo Amateur Hockey Association season with two decisive wins against Prince George.
The first was a 7-2 drubbing on Saturday, followed by a 4-0 shutout victory on Sunday. Both games were played in Williams Lake at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.
“Every player had the opportunity to be on the ice for at least one, if not two, of the goals scored [on Saturday],” said T-wolves manager Mike Rispin. “Excellent effort from the entire team.”
Anya Leverman, Cassi Hogman, Katie Toews, Caitlyn Ray (2), Faith Outhouse and Shian Remanente each lit the lamp for Williams Lake.
“We did get into some penalty trouble late in the game on Saturday,” he said.
On Sunday Katya Leverman (2), Stefanie Martin and Grace Outhouse found the twine for the Timberwolves.
“We managed to trim down the penalties from Saturday’s game taking only two minor penalties during the entire tilt versus seven minor and one major [penalty] the day before,” Rispin said.
“[It was] an excellent effort for both games and four points in the first two CAHA league games.”
The T-wolves also play in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association, however, will need to attempt to qualify for provincials through the CAHA later this season.
