Bantam Girls Win B.A.D. Tournament
Submitted By jbrock on Sat 02 03, 18
The St. Marys Rock Bantam girls, sponsored by McPhail’s Pet Store, participated in the BAD (Belmont, Aylmer, Dorchester) WOGHL tournament Jan. 19-21.

Brittany Petrie’s squad played four round-robin games, winning three and losing one game to the West Oxford Inferno team. In pool play, the team defeated Ilderton Jets 4-0, Lambeth Attack 4-0, lost 2-0 to West Oxford, and defeated Ennismore Eagles 4-1. With 12 goals for and only three goals against, the Rock finished first in their pool play, earning a berth in the semi-finals on the Sunday.

The McPhail’s girls defeated Lambeth Lancers 4-1 in their semi-final match. With this victory, they now had the opportunity for redemption in the tournament final game against West Oxford. The Inferno had handed St. Marys its only loss to this point in the tourney.

The championship game against West Oxford had lots of excitement and opportunities

for goals, but after three periods of play, the score remained deadlocked at 0-0.

The two equally-matched sides entered overtime with 3-on-3 play. However, just eight seconds into overtime proved to be all the extra time required for the Rock girls, who netted the tournament-clinching goal. Firing the winner was centre Julia Cameron and Emma Luyten picked up the shutout.

“Overall, we just had a great tournament,” reported assistant coach Elizabeth Simpson. “The girls really stepped up and played the best they’ve played all year. We were really proud of them.

“In the last game, we played awesome,” she added.

Team-bonding weekend

The McPhail’s squad had an excellent weekend of team-bonding fun and team play at the rink. The girls would like to acknowledge their fantastic volunteer coaching staff, for all the time and effort they have given to this successful hockey season thus far.

Looking ahead, the Bantam girls will compete in pool play to qualify to participate in the OWHA provincials tournament in Toronto in April. The families and friends of the girls wish them the best of luck at achieving this next goal!

2017-18 team roster

The McPhail’s Bantam team roster consists of: Captain Lydia Taylor, Audrey Littlejohn, Emily Shrubsole, Maddie Aarts, Julia Cameron, Audrey Zurbrigg, Vanessa Vernooy, Megan Keene, Meghan Morning, Josie Corby, Lauren Gracey and goalie Emma Luyten.

Coaches are: Brittany (Sterkenburg) Petrie, Liz Simpson, Jodi Koot and Jill O’Keefe.
