Bantam girls wrap up their season at provincials
Published April 10, 2018
The Canadian Tire/Parkview Dental Bantam Girls Jets can be very proud of how they played and represented themselves at provincials this past weekend. Once again they solidified as a team and displayed a vast array of hockey skills and perseverance. Although the girls did not win a medal, they played up to the level of their opponents and the results of their efforts were evident in the scores of the games, which could of gone either way, but unfortunately went in favour of their rivals.
The Jets won their first game on Friday morning against the Lambeth Lancers with a score of 2-1. Scoring for the Jets were Jaylin Frost, assisted by Beth Brownlee and Brownlee, with 14 seconds left in the game scored the winning goal, assisted by Ryan Rupnow. Friday afternoon saw the team battle hard end-to-end throughout the game, against the Markle Shooting Stars, but ended in the Stars taking the win 1-0. Saturday afternoon the girls played with determination and heart but fell to the North Bay Ice Bolts 1-0.
The team has had a fantastic run throughout the season and would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the team’s success. A special thank you to sponsors, Canadian Tire and Parkview Dental who made all of the team’s accomplishments possible. Thank you to the coaches, bench staff, managers, den moms, parents and fans for believing in the team and for their ongoing support.
Most of all we want to commend the girls for all of their hard work over the season and for making us proud of who they are both off and on the ice. Girls, you played with true Jets spirit and we thank you for allowing all of us to be a part of that. Truly a remarkable group of young ladies who have a passion for hockey and respect for one another.
