The Terrace bantam rep girls team has taken silver at tier 1 provincials in Victoria, after losing to Prince George in the gold medal match, 4-1 last night.
“[It’s] really a great accomplishment for our team and a real positive for our female program in the north,” said coach Mario Desjardins. “Two teams being number one and two in the north proves that female hockey in northern B.C. is coming on strong.”
The first period of the gold medal match saw Prince George come on strong, scoring three quick unanswered goals.
Desjardins said Terrace came back in the second and turned the momentum of the game around, creating some chances to score, but did not manage to get anything past the goalie until the third period.
It was Bailey Kasum who scored Terrace’s only goal of the game at the 15 minute mark of the third period. Ten minutes later Prince George put the game out of reach by scoring its fourth goal, and the game ended 4-1.
This ends a very strong tournament for the Terrace bantams with three wins, a tie and two losses during the week-long tournament in Victoria.
