Minor hockey minute

Windermere Valley Minor Hockey news

Submitted by Windermere Valley Minor Hockey

Windermere Valley Minor Hockey players began practices in early September. Games have begun in earnest this past month. The Initiation team had a home game against Golden on Saturday, November 4th. Under the new BC Hockey rules, the teams play on half the ice and no scores are kept. All the 5-6 year olds had a fun time, and there were a lot of goals scored.

The Novice (7-8 year olds) team held an Intersquad game on Saturday morning and the game ended in a tie. Again, they play on half ice which gives every player more chances to handle the puck. Myan Twogood and Tyler McGoqan made many good saves for both teams.

The Atom team was busy on the weekend with an Intersquad game the same day, which ended in a shoot-out. On Sunday, November 5th, the team played Kimberley and won the game with a score of 7-1. Carson Scheffer, who states he is a defensive defense man, scored his first career hat trick. Calden Stanbury scored his first goal of this season.

One Peewee team played their game against Creston in Canal Flats on Sunday afternoon. They lost the game after leading 3-0, but the game was close. Paddy Donahue scored 2 goals and Leif Dubreuil scored 1. Leif had a busy weekend as he also won the Shoot-to-Win at the Rockies’ game on Friday night. Make sure you get that golf pass back from your dad, Leif.

The Senior Girls had their first official game of the season this Saturday. Cranbrook Girls came to play, but didn’t have enough players so Mia Spencer and Emily Gervais played for Cranbrook. The WVMH girls lost their game (except Mia and Emily), but Natasha Barsby scored a beautiful unassisted goal. Coral Eccles played well in goal.

The Bantam team played Creston on Saturday and were on the losing end of that game. The WVMH star of the game was Kyle Brunner.

There is always a need for referees. If you are interested, there will be a referee clinic on Sunday, November 19th at the arena.

Next weekend there is a home tournament for the Peewee teams. Stop by the arena and cheer on the home teams.
