Mitchell Tournament
Submitted By akent on Wednesday, December 3, 2014
On Friday November the 21st, the Petite Blue “Ice Crushers” entered to play in the Annual Mitchell Ringette Tournament. They played their first game of the day at 10 a.m. Friday against the Hanover Heat. The Petite Blue girls came out strong and their first goal was made a couple of minutes into the game. Goderich Petite Blue took the win with a score of 4-3!

The girls went back on the ice at 5 p.m., to face their Tournament Host, losing a tough battle of 6-1.
Saturday began at 9 am with the Petite Blue ready to go back on the ice to play their hardest; knowing
they had to win this game to get a shot at the Gold/Silver game. With only two minutes into their game,
the first goal was made by Kayleigh Goud in the net of the opposing Waterloo. The goal was assisted by
smart plays of centre Arden Bowler and defense Zoe Milne. Waterloo didn't wait long to answer and shot
the ring in the Goderich goal. This goal seem to be like “a wake up call” for the Goderich Ice Crushers.
The Blue girls went fierce into battle with good checking and great passing skills! Determination showed
when forward Avery Cross had the ring possession and made a fast pass to Milne to claim the Blue's
second goal of that morning. Goalie Hannah Kent was standing strong and working hard, together with
defence players, Ava Fitzgerald and Giselle McIlhargey, to ensure that Waterloo didn't get a chance any
more shots in the net. With only a couple of minutes left in the first half of the game, forward Payton Swan
did some great checking skills to lend her ring position. With a skilled, quick pass to the Blue's Centre
Lily Lierman the goal of the morning was made by forward Gould.
In the second half, Waterloo was working hard to get a second goal but they couldn't break through the
strong defence played by the Blue Ice Crushers. Quick, skilled passing from Michaela Alcock assisted
Ruby Olson to capture the last goal! Goderich Petite's Blue took a win from Waterloo with 4-1 to guarantee
them a place in the Gold/Silver game of the next day to face Mitchell for the second time.
At the beginning of the Medal game it was evident that the Petite Blue girls went on the Ice feeling
confident and ready to play their best game of this Tournament. Petite Blue played hard and extremely
well to demonstrate some great passes. Defensive playing and strong goal tending from Kent also added
to a high energy, exciting battle for both players and spectators! The game ended for the Ice Crushers
with a 2-0 lost versus Mitchell. The girls were proud to bring home a well deserved Silver medal.
"These girls came with their game on and it showed. I am so proud of their efforts and sportsmanship."
Said head coach Angela Kent.
