Midget Timberwolves golden in Kamloops

The Williams Lake Timberwolves midget girls’ hockey team took gold Nov. 22-24 at the Kamloops Midget Female Hockey Tournament.

The Wolves opened up the tournament with a 2-1 win against Kelowna. Teneal Schick and Cassie Hogman scored for Williams Lake and Stefanie Martin was named game star.

Saturday morning the Wolves took on Langley, winning 4-1. Schick scored once, Martin had a goal and two assists and game star Calissa Broomfield scored twice.

Next up was Penticton and the Wolves rolled to a 5-0 victory. Broomfield, again, lit the lamp twice and added a helper, while Teneal, Martin and Hogman also scored.

Kennedy Wiebe and Sarah Austin each had a pair of assists, and goalie Bailey Schick record the shutout between the pipes.

Sunday morning’s semifinal saw the Wolves take on Abbotsford and cruise to a 4-0 win.

Teneal opened the scoring with an assist from Madison Hordiuk, before returning the favour moments later to set up Hordiuk for a 2-0 Williams Lake lead after the first period.

Abbotsford pushed back in the second frame, but Alena Mayer and Brianna Chaffee scored early in the third period. Raylea Garland was solid in net the rest of the game for the shutout.

The final saw the Wolves meet up with Langley again. The coast team opened the scoring making it the first time all tournament the Wolves were behind.

The Wolves, however, press hard in the second frame and were rewarded as Alexa Nelson scored on a quick one-timer from Teneal, who set it up from behind the Langley net to tie it 1-1.

There was no scoring through the third period or the five-minute overtime sending the contest to a five-player shootout.

Mayer and Hogman scored for the Wolves while Langley’s second and third shooters also scored.

Bailey, however, would not be beaten again, and the Wolves’ seventh shooter, Alexis Hemond, scored to clinch the gold medal for the lakecity squad.

The next action for the Wolves is in March as they attend tournaments in 100 Mile House and Richmond.
