Bantam Hurricanes roll over Cowichan

The team headed south to Duncan on Saturday to play Cowichan Valley

The Hurricane girls welcomed a quiet weekend after a last week’s whirlwind of games.

The team headed south to Duncan on Saturday to play Cowichan Valley.  The Campbell River girls are no stranger to the Island Savings Arena in Duncan as they have won consecutive Island Banners as Pee Wee’s there in 2011 and 2012.

In the first period the Hurricane forwards Carrissa Jochimski, Kate Johnson, Rylee Nelson, Callie Ann Massie, Frances Speck, Rebecca Manson and Julia Mercer did a good job of getting under the skin of the opposing team. Although it was a scoreless opening period the Campbell River side dominated the play creating many scoring opportunities.

Late in the second period the lady Hurricane’s finally put a tally up on the board when Manson scored an unassisted goal on a breakaway. This relaxed the team and the coaches somewhat and the team turned up their play a notch. The coaches were mixing up the lines a bit in the second and found a winning combination to open up the third period.

Lisa Lloyd opened the period with a quick wrist shot off a beauty pass from behind the net from Hayley Hunter.

The Campbell River side continue to roll over the Cowichan team in the third period controlling the majority of the play, with solid defending from Alyssa Palmer, Vanessa Dunn, Kylie Scammell, Jessica Grant, and Maiya Cramb.
