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.
