Peewee girls find themselves above the rest

The all-girls peewee hockey team hosted Cowichan Valley in an exhibition game.

The all-girls peewee hockey team played last Saturday as the Peoples Drug Mart & Peoples Pharmacy Hurricanes while hosting Cowichan Valley in an exhibition game.

The girls once again found themselves with little competiton in the Vancouver Island Amateur Hockey Association (VIAHA) peewee girls league and went on to win 12-2. Goals were scored by Cassidy Bellevance, Kylie Scammel, Rebecca Manson, Alyssa Palmer and Callie Anne Masse and assists came from Carrissa Jochimski and Kate Johnson.

The girls can only credit their consistent effort, incredible teamwork and coaching for their successful season to date. The Hurricanes travel to Port McNeil to play another exhibition game before their regular VIAHA season starts.

In other girls peewee hockey action, the Ducks defeated the Sharks by a score of 5-3 at Rod Brind’Amour Arena last Saturday afternoon.

Linda Smith, spokesperson for the team said the girls proved to themselves they have what it takes to play in an all-girls peewee league.
