In the U12 Terrace vs. Quesnel game

“There’s a reason they call it the fastest game on ice”

Teams from Quesnel, Prince George, and Houston made the trek to Terrace the weekend of Oct. 27 for ringette

Teams from Quesnel, Prince George, and Houston made the trek to Terrace the weekend of Oct. 27 to participate in a fast-paced and fun-filled ringette play weekend at the local rink.

Co-ed teams in divisions, U9, U12, and U14 battled it out for the top spot over the course of the weekend, with raffle prizes and a lunch banquet for the players and their supporters. It wasn’t a typical tournament, but a chance for the teams to get in league play.

“With the older groups the speed and agility were amazing,” said organizer Erika Nicholson. “There is a reason why ringette is called the fastest game on ice.”

Even an earthquake during the U14 Terrace and Quesnel game on Saturday night didn’t put a damper on festivities, she said. On the ice, the players didn’t feel the earthquake­—but were drawn to the excitement in the stands.

The U9 Terrace/Prince George combined team won all three of their matches, with strong showings by Emily McLeod and Nicholas Edwards, who scored goals in every game. In the U12 matches, Terrace lost to Houston and Prince George, but took Quesnel in a high-scoring game 14-9. In that game, hatricks were scored by Julia Yoo and Lisa Nicholson, with many other players getting on the board.

As for the U14 division, Terrace fell to Quesnel 8-2, but trounced Prince George 10-5, thanks in part to hatricks by Oliva Resch and Cassidy Pavao.

They fought a close match against Houston, winning 8-6. Quinn Beblow saw a hatrick and goaltending by Jessica Dahl was on point. On the defensive end, Emma Kenmuir, Erin Struyk, Emily Barron and Michelle Roseboom played strong and smart.

Here are some results: U9 Division: PG/Terrace 10 – Houston 2; PG/Terrace 6 – Houston 3; PG/Terrace 7 – Houston 3. U12 Division: Terrace 3 – Houston 10; Terrace 6 – PG 9; Terrace 14 – Quesnel 9. U14 Division:  Terrace 2  – Quesnel 8; Terrace 10 – PG 5; Terrace 8  – Houston 6.
