Female midgets slip past Tri Port

Sooke Thunderbirds win 3-2 in hard-fought ice battle

The Sooke Thunderbirds dug the knife deeper into their up-Island rivals Tri Port in female midget hockey play on Saturday

Three weeks ago Sooke went to Port McNeill for a tournament and defeated the Tri Port for the gold medal, so Tri Port came to town with revenge on its mind this weekend.

But it was the home team winning 3-2.

After a hard fought scoreless first period, Kaillee Purnell opened the scoring for the home team early in the second.

Tri Port tied tied things up but Hailey Dimock put Sooke ahead 2-1 after two.

Sooke started the third period on a power play and Dimock finished a nice passing play with Purnell and Desiree Cumming to put the home team up by two.

Tri Port got one back late but despite a furious rally they were unable complete the comeback.

The Thunderbirds played a solid defensive game and Selena Madill was brilliant in the net once again, said Sooke coach Peter Faulkner

“This was a hard fought battle and a big win for us. It’s a huge confidence boost and keeps us squarely in the playoff hunt.”

Next game for the Thunderbird is a game against Nanaimo Clippers in Sooke. Game time is 2:30 p.m.
