Sooke hockey girls fight Grizzlies to keep a tie

Sooke Bantam girls faced off against the JDF Grizzlies girls, and came home with a well-fought and a hard earned tie.

On this beautiful Sunday afternoon, the Sooke Bantam girls faced off against the JDF Grizzlies girls. Early in the first period, the  Grizzlies were first on the board. Then, at 7:08 in the first period,  a nice pass from Chevy Alexander to Leah Zschau tied the score, one all. The Sooke girls worked hard to keep up with the JDF team. “We only had two lines, so the girls gave all they could!” said coach Steve Couture.

At the end of the second period, Jennifer Simonis gave the advance to the team with a strong slap shot from the blue line — from a great pass from Rory Wood — to bring the score up to 2-1. Then, JdF tied the score. Two all.

Starting the third period, JdF added one more goal. It took Sooke all period for the come back: at the last minute, there was a nice play from Olivia Carello, with a pass of the puck in front of the net on Morgan Couture stick, to score the third and final goal from Sooke.

The game ended at 3-3.

“I’m so happy and pleased with all the girls play today,” said coach Couture. “I’m satisfied with the efforts today. Players Erin Chrisholm, Celina Palko, Kaitlin Mckelvey, Michele Lacombe, Kailee Peaker and Victoria Sutherland gave great examples,” added coach Steve. “Great job!”
