The Senior Female Western Shield tournament was recently held in Calgary, Alberta. BC Hockey was represented by the Island Pacific Phantoms in the Senior A category and by the Pacific Breakers in the Senior B Category. The Knights captured the BC Hockey Senior AA Championship and the Breakers won the BC Hockey Senior A Championship.
The BC teams were unable to get their game on track and neither team qualified for a medal game. The Breakers defeated the Grand Prairie Panthers 5-4 in their first game, but dropped three (3) consecutive games in round robin play to be eliminated from the tournament. Caroline Lawrence led the Phantoms offence with three (3) goals and three (3) assists in four (4) games.
The Phantoms had a frustrating winless weekend losing their first three (3) games by a total of four (4) goals. The team had four (4) goals disallowed in their first three (3) games which led to the team’s frustration. Kate Murie had a great weekend finishing with one (1) goal and two (2) assists.
Each team will look for redemption at the 2010 Senior Female Western Shield in April, 2010.
