T-wolves continue streak as provincials draw nearer

The Williams Lake Midget Female Timberwolves continued their hot season during the weekend hosting team based out of Dawson Creek.

The Williams Lake Midget Female Timberwolves continued their hot season during the weekend hosting a regional team based out of Dawson Creek.

The team featured the top midget-aged female players from Fort Nelson to Vanderhoof and will be competing at provincials alongside the Timberwolves and six other teams March 19-23 in Parksville.

The T-wolves picked up back-to-back shutouts — a 4-0 win Saturday morning, then a 2-0 victory Saturday evening — before skating to a 1-1 draw Sunday.

“The Sunday morning game was hard-fought and although we outshot the vistors 30-14 the final outcome was the draw,” said T-wolves coach Roy Call.

The weekend saw the team’s two point leaders — Katya Leverman and Brook Call — continue to put up points.

Leverman had a goal and two assists while Call posted a goal and an assist.

“It was also a good week for the ‘Minion line,’ a group made up of all first-year midget players — Karena Sokolan, Bronwyn Pocock and Gabrielle Pierce” Call said. “The line all had points and Gabrielle capped off a great weekend with two goals.”

Other tallies from the team came from Paige Outhouse and a pair of goals from Emma Roorda.

Call said the weekend ended a five-weekend run of games after the Christmas break where the T-wolves posted 10 wins, two losses and three ties over the run.

“Over the 15 games the team has surrendered only seven goals against,” Call said. “Rachel Cross has played well over the span but of late Tamara William has been on fire posting four straight shutouts.”

Williams Lake will now have the weekend off followed by a series of three games in Everett, Wash. versus the Western Washington Wild — a team they hosted in September where they posted a one-win, two-loss and one-draw record.

The team will then have one more tune-up weekend series before the season ends at the provincials.
