Rage strike ringette gold in Langley

Kelowna U14A team wins Spirit of Winter tournament

A team representing the Kelowna Ringette Association returned home with gold medals in hand from the Spirit of Winter tournament in Langley last weekend.

In an all-Okanagan U14A championship final on Sunday, the Kelowna Rage edged the Vernon Venom 3-2.

“It was a strong team effort, we are very proud of all the girls,” said U14A Rage coach Jenni Duff.

The Rage started the tournament slowly, posting a 2-2 record in the round robin but it was enough to advance to the playoffs.

In the semifinal, Kelowna and the Vancouver U14A Fire played to a 3-3 tie through regulation. After a scoreless overtime, the teams went to a shootout with the KRA reps winning 2-1.

Shea Taylor and Amelia Russo scored in the shootout, while Addison Cousins was solid in the Rage goal.

In KRA league scores from last weekend: Kelowna 16B 2-Shuswap 16B 4; Kelowna Open B 7-Shuswap 19B 1; Kelowna Open B 5-Vernon Open 3; Shuswap 16B 11-Kelowna 16B 1; Kelowna 16A 6-Shuswap 19B 1; and Shuswap Open A 6-Kelowna Open A 2.
