Terrace bantam girls hockey team advances at provincials

The Terrace bantam rep girls hockey team is advancing to the semi-finals at provincial play downs.

The Terrace bantam rep girls hockey team is advancing to the semi-finals this morning, where it will take on Vancouver’s North Shore team at 11 a.m.

With two wins, a tie and a loss under its belt so far, the team has finished first in its five team hockey pool at the 2012 female bantam provincials in Victoria.

Game one was on Sunday and was the team’s only loss so far against Kelowna 2-0.

The next day Terrace swept Cranbrook 4-0, with Sage Desjardins scoring twice and Bailey Kasum and Myah Bowel each putting one in the net.

Game three was a 5-5 tie against Surrey, played at 7:30 a.m. yesterday, with Ashley Kuehne scoring twice and Kasum, Desjardins and Rachel Biddings each netting a goal.

The fourth game was last night at 8 p.m. and saw Terrace edge out North Vancouver 4-1, with goals coming from Erin Rose, Cassandra Hogman, Kasum and Kuehne.

“Terrace had their best game, and the girls stepped up to the challenge and dominated all of the third period,” said coach of the team, Mario Desjardins of the fourth game.
