Atom Hurricanes sweep to Island ‘C’ girls title

Campbell River squad caps unbeaten season with 6-2 title-game victory over Peninsula

The Campbell River atom Hurricanes added the Atom C girls playoff banner to their regular-season title with a 6-2 win over Peninsula Sunday in Victoria.

The win capped an unbeaten season for the Hurricanes, who went 9-0-1 in the regular season.

A natural hat trick by Kaydence Harris turned a 2-2 tie midway through the second period into a 5-2 Campbell River advantage early in the third. Harris finished with four goals, and Asha Jhawer and Inara Jhawer also found the net in the victory over the second-seeded Eagles.

Goalie Maggie McGee picked up the win in net to cap her own unbeaten season between the pipes. Morgan Taylor had a pair of assists and Sadie Fast, Kiana Danielson and Alexandria Uzzell-Paulos added one each.

After drawing a first-round bye as the top seed, the Hurricanes began their playoff quest with a surprisingly tough 3-2 semifinal win over third-seeded Oceanside. Trailing 2-1 after one period, the Hurricanes knotted the score on Harris’s goal at 13:42 of the second, and Harris netted the game-winner at 8:44 of the third.

Morgan Taylor scored midway through the first period to stake Campbell River to a brief 1-0 lead before the Icebreakers struck for two quick scores late in the period.

Uzzell-Paulos had two assists and Harris contributed a helper.
