Timberwolves nab Richmond Ice Classic title

The Williams Lake Timberwolves midget girls hockey team won all five games they played at last weekend’s Richmond Ice Classic Tournament.

The Williams Lake Timberwolves midget girls hockey team won all five games they played at last weekend’s Richmond Ice Classic Tournament.

The Wolves opened the tournament, which ran March 21-23, against a physical Sooke Thunderbirds team and found themselves down 2-0 early, but a late first-period goal from Calissa Broomfield gave the Wolves some life.

Madison Hordiuk scored early in the second period to tie the game, and Brianna Chaffee added two more for a 4-2 final.

Saturday morning the Wolves took on the host Richmond Ravens.

Laurel White scored the game’s only goal on a slapshot from the point and secured the shutout and the 1-0 win for the Wolves.

Next up was the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies and the Wolves rolled to a 4-0 win.

Teneal Schick scored twice, while Broomfield and Chaffee added singles. Bailey Schick recorded the shutout.

Sunday morning the Wolves scored early and often as they cruised past the 100 Mile House Storm. Cassie Hogman potted a hat trick, while singles were added by Kennedy Wiebe, Emily Hendricks, Sarah Austin and Broomfield.

The gold-medal final was a rematch between the  Wolves and the Richmond Ravens.

The Wolves ran into penalty trouble and spent much of the first period shorthanded, killing six consecutive penalties.

The solid play from the Wolves defensive core of Alena Mayer, Amanda Yonkman, Cassie Able, Alexis Hemmond, White and Chaffee kept the Ravens from threatening.

With six minutes left in the third period the Wolves attacked the Ravens zone in waves and crashed their goal relentlessly.

Broomfield found herself alone at the side of the net and put home the game’s first and only goal, with assists to Wiebe and Stefanie Martin.

The Ravens pressed hard, pulling their goalie, and the Wolves had to kill penalties for the rest of the game.

Bailey, again, was outstanding between the pipes — unyielding and would not be beaten — allowing Williams Lake to prevail in a 1-0 victory.

“It was a fitting end for Grade 12 graduating players Emily Hendricks, assistant captain Alexa Nelson, and Wolves captain Alena Mayer, as this was their final game as part of Williams Lake Minor Hockey,” said head coach Cordell Wiebe.
