The Salmon Arm Midget A Female Silvertips, sponsored by Armstrong Co-Op, won the gold medal in their Midget Division at the Wickfest International hockey tournament held in Calgary last weekend. The Tips went 5-0 on the way to winning the title.
The Tips opened the tournament with a 3-2 win over the Innisfail Flyers. Sam Maric opened the scoring with a snap shot up high and then the captain, Hailey Haskell scored on a slap shot from the point. Innisfail scored to tie it up and then Emily Clark scored an insurance marker on rebound to close out the scoring.
Salmon Arm faced a team from Mexico next and they cruised to an 8-1 win. The Mexican team featured girls of all ages and they could not withstand the pressure from the Tips right from the start of the game. Taylor Vandale, Cassidy Marshall and Cailee Bauml each scored twice while singles were provided by Haskell and Brooke Miller. In the spirit of international play, the Tips exchanged gifts with the Mexican girls after the game.
The Tips earned a 3-0 shut out win against the Fort Saskatchewan Fury in game three to punch their ticket to the final. Mikayla Stirling and Vandale (2) handled the scoring.
In the final round robin game, the Tips defeated Sherwood Park 3-1. Clark (2) and Marshall scored the Tips goals.
The final was a rematch of the tournament opener and Salmon Arm again handled the Innisfail Flyers easily outshooting them on the way to a 3-1 win. Tareyn Hanson scored her first of the season to open the scoring and Haskell scored on another slapshot to provide a cushion. With the Flyers pressing hard to get back in the game, Vandale scored to give a 3-0 lead with only a minute left. The Flyers broke the shutout with 9 seconds left after a crazy bounce off a skate found the back of the net.
The tournament was topped off by having Hayley Wickenheiser present the game awards to the players on the ice immediately after the game. “It was great to win the tournament” said head coach Rob Bauml, “but it was a real treat to have a player who is a real hockey hero to these girls take the time to come on the ice and present our awards. The girls were so excited to have the chance to meet her and take a picture.”
BC Hockey announced January 15, 2015 that Ali Roine of the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers has been named Female Midget AAA Player of the Month for December 2014. The 5’4” forward from Coldstream scored five (5) goals and one (1) assist with just four (4) penalty minutes in three (3) league games.
For the season, Roine has ten (10) goals and five (5) assists in 24 games. The Lakers have a record of 11-11-2 so far on the season.
Said Thompson-Okanagan Head Coach Mark Henderson, “Ali is a big reason why this young team is one (1) point out of third place in the FMAAA league. She has been a dedicated leader on and off the ice throughout this season. Ali is our team Captain and has a huge impact on bringing up the intensity of this young team. She was also rewarded on the score sheet in our league play in December, including a natural hat trick in one game.”
