Bantam girls win strong against JDF

Sooke’s Bantam girls played their fourth exhibition on October 6 at the Bear Mountain arena against Juan de Fuca.

Sooke’s Bantam girls played their fourth exhibition on October 6 at the Bear Mountain arena against Juan de Fuca. They showed up in very great spirit and ready to play. They scored early in the game. A nice shot from Rory Wood put the girls on the board. Then, four minutes later, Olivia Carelo added to the advance for Sooke, and Alyssa Lloyd ended the first period with the third goals.

In the second period, a nice play from Kaylee Peaker in front of the JDF’s goalie gave a great opening for Jennifer Simonis to  do a nice slap shot and score the fourth goalie for the Sooke Thunderbirds. Defence holding by Alison Sudlow, Haley Olejnik, Victoria Sutherland and Lilia Egeland very efficiently stopping every attack from JDF in their zone.

In the third, period, Alyssa Lloyd put her second and third goal of the night (and a hat trick) with the help of Morgan Couture (two assists). Great play in the offensive zone from Kaitlin McKelvey, Desiree Cumming, Celina Palko and Chevy Alexander put lot of pressure on the opposite team. Goalie Michele Lacombe can put her first shoot-out of the season in her pocket. It was a very good game, and coach Stephen Simonis led his team very well.
