Hardest part was getting to Golden

They were forced to fight the elements as well as battle a series of other female hockey teams, but the Kelowna midget Wildabeasts came out on top of the Golden Midget Hockey tournament last weekend.

They were forced to fight the elements as well as battle a series of other female hockey teams, but the Kelowna midget Wildabeasts came out on top of the Golden Midget Hockey tournament last weekend.

Heading to Golden last Friday, the team encountered road closures, bad weather and high avalanche hazards.

But they were able to make it to Golden and when they did they played with skill, will and sportsmanship to earn the championship in the female hockey tournament.

MVP achievements were claimed by team members Megan Sebastian, Anneke MacMahon, Ashley Corbett and Meagan Ross.

Girls who scored hat tricks included Corbett, MacMahon and Cassie Strymecki while leadership was supplied by captain Jody Monk and assistants Jolanda Kondrak and Danielle McDivitt.

Solid team play and work ethic came from team members Nicole Steward, Sara Vicaretti, Kirsten Dachwitz, Sydney Baxter, Robyn and Kelsey Hall as well as goalie Julie Humphries.
