Extreme team claims provincial bronze

North Island Female Midget hockey team finishes third in BC Provincial Championship tournament

The North Island Extreme wrapped up its trip to the female midget A provincial hockey championships last week with a game worthy of their name.

In a contest that produced 81 combined penalty minutes and two ejections, the Extreme claimed third place in the tourney with an 8-0 romp over tourney host Windermere Valley before a raucous home crowd.

The game, described as a “gong show” by Extreme manager Kim Dutcyvich of Port McNeill, included several stretches of 3-on-3 play as occupancy of the penalty boxes rivaled that on the team benches.

It was an impressive finish for a squad that kicked off tournament play with a 1-1 tie with Kamloops and narrow losses to Richmond and Langley, the two teams that went on to meet in the championship final.

The Extreme, made up of players from Nanaimo and points North, including defenseman Samantha Dutcyvich of Port McNeill, then defeated Cranbrook 5-1 to set up the final showdown against Windermere Valley.

Langley edged Richmond 3-2 in the title game, avenging a loss by the same score in round-robin play.

Richmond downed the Extreme 4-2 and Langley beat the Extreme 3-1 to hand the North Island squad its only losses in the tourney.
