Sooke Bantam girls take a 2-1 loss after 35 shots on goal

Sooke's Bantam girls faced off against the Peninsula Eagles and came up short in spite of playing a very strong game.

It was on a beautiful morning that the Bantam girls once again faced off against the Peninsula Eagles. As usual, the game was very intense.

Early in the first period, Peninsula struck first. Not long after, captain Morgan Couture (on her first game back from her head injury two weeks ago) placed the Sooke Thunderbirds on the score board with an awesome pass from Olivia Carello, tying it up one all.

The defence did an remarkable job clearing the net: Victoria Sutherland, Haley Olejnik, Jennifer Simonis and Leah Zschau were very physical and moved the puck very well. The second period saw no goals from either team, and in the third, Peninsula sealed the game by  scoring their second goal.

“I was very pleased with our forward today,” recalled coach Steve, “they were pushing Peninsula deep in their zone and putting lots of pressure on them. Rory Wood, Chevy Alexander, Kaitlin McKelvey, Celina Palko and Kaylee Peaker, just raised their play a notch today.” Michel Lacombe, faced 35 shots.

“She’s totally in control, and we are very pleased with her work on the ice; she’s our star!” said coach Steve. Now, the Bantam girls are getting ready for the Sooke Girls Faceoff this week-end.
