Team BC Opens U18 National Championship With A Win
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
Team BC began the 2015 National Women’s Under-18 Championship on a high note, winning their first game 2-1 against western rival Alberta.
BC opened the scoring, with defenseman Cassidy Bell (Baldonnel, BC) making a great individual effort to get an unassisted goal with less than five (5) minutes left in the period.
Alberta scored in the second period to even it up, with Tyra Meropoulis scoring on a great shot after a 3-on-1 passing play.
BC’s Leona Sim (North Vancouver, BC) then fired a laser late in the third period, making it a 2-1 game with 7:15 to go. Her linemates Kirsten Martin (Rosedale, BC) and Amy Potomak (Aldergrove, BC) were credited with assists on the play.
BC killed off five (5) power plays, holding Alberta to just 20 shots throughout the game. In net, Alex Gulstene (North Vancouver, BC) got the win, while Alberta’s Zoe De Beauville allowed two (2) goals on 17 shots. Defenseman Abby Cook (Kelowna, BC) was named Player of the Game for Team BC.
Team BC takes on Team Atlantic at 7:30AM Pacific Time on Thursday, November 5, 2015, and will then face Team Ontario Blue in their final preliminary round game at 1:30PM Pacific Time on Friday, November 6, 2015.
