Team BC Claims Bronze at National Women's U18 Championship
Sunday, November 13, 2016

Team BC claimed the bronze medal at the National Women's U18 Championship in Regina, defeating Ontario Blue 5-3. 

Alex Allan (Abbotsford, BC) opened the scoring less than two (2) minutes into the first period, scoring off a rebound to take an early lead. Ontario Blue's Victoria Klimek tied things up a few minutes later before Allan scored her second goal of the game on the power play, sending BC into the first intermission with a 2-1 lead.

The second period was fast-paced, with BC's Allison Borrow (Clearwater, BC) and Ontario Blue's Alex Templeman exchanging goals in the span of a minute. 
With a 3-2 lead heading into the third period, Shay-Lee McConnell (Port Alberni, BC) scored off a rebound from Courtney Vorster (Richmond, BC), to give BC a bit of breathing room and a 4-2 lead. Amy Potomak (Aldergrove, BC) then showed off some speed, scoring a short-handed goal after creating a turnover at the other end of the rink. Ontario Blue scored with 33 seconds remaining to make it 5-3, but it wasn't enough as BC claimed the bronze.
Winning the bronze medal ties BC's best ever finish at the National Women's U18 Championship. BC previously won bronze at the 2005 edition of the tournament in Salmon Arm, BC.
