Sooke Bantam girls placed second overall at the Richmond Ice Classic in last week's hockey tournament.

Sooke Bantam girls came in second place at the Richmond Ice Classic.

Last week was the Richmond Ice Classic. The Sooke Bantam girls ended up in second place overall, and came back home with a splendid silver medal. Coach Steve Couture and Assistant Coach Stephen Simonis worked hard all season to get the girls ready for the tournament.

“We were playing a level higher than we were supposed to, and we did manage to reach the final, I can’t ask for more,” said coach Couture. “I’m so proud of each of my players and extremely happy with the result.”

Celina Palko started the weekend with two goals and two assists; Morgan Couture contributed another goal and two assists; and Rory Wood also helped out with a goal and one assist. Goalie Michele Lacombe was recognized as the tournament’s overall MVP.  Steve Couture counted on two peewee players who joined them to complete the team: Zoe Tremblay (who got a MVP of the game) and Maggie Mackinnon.

A great finale for a great hockey season. Good job Sooke Bantam girls!
