Triport girls claim tourney title

The Triport bantam girls hockey team claim win in Fuller Lake girls hockey tournament.

This time, there was no heartbreak.

The Triport bantam girls hockey team closed out its 2012-13 season Sunday with a dramatic shootout win over Langley in the championship game of the Fuller Lake girls hockey tournament.

Goalie Sarah Case made a save to clinch the 3-2 victory after the Wild Onez scored on their fourth shootout attempt. The championship reversed the result of their first tournament of the year, in which they reached the championship before taking silver with a shootout loss in the final at Oceanside.

Langley took leads of 1-0 in the first period and 2-1 in the second, with Triport’s Kerrigan Sharpe scoring to tie the game each time on assists from Emma Mitchell and Randi Ward. After regulation ended in a 2-2 tie, the teams lined up for a three-player shootout. The Wild Onez scored on their first shot, but Langley knotted it on a goal by its third and final shooter. The North Island team, made up of players from Port Alice, Port Hardy and Port McNeill, then secured the win in the fourth shootout round.

“It was the last play for team this season, and we were very happy with how they played,” said Boni Sharpe, head coach. “We got a lot of good feedback from other parents and fans. They didn’t expect that we’d be that strong, coming from the North Island.”

Case threw shutouts in each of the team’s first three games, wins of 4-0 over Cowichan Valley, 6-0 over Langley and 5-0 over Maple Ridge.

 

Ward scored hat tricks in two of the games, Kerrigan Sharpe had a pair of goals, and Mitchell and Mercedes Trevor also found the net.
