PORT ELGIN - The Kin Canada Novices did the best of the three St. Marys minor hockey ‘C’ girls teams which competed in the 2019 Saugeen Shores International Silver Stick finals here this past weekend, Feb. 1-3.

 

Girls ‘C’ teams competed in the Novice, Atom, Peewee, Bantam and Midget age divisions. In total, there were almost 80 games played over three days.

Ray Cousineau’s Kin Novices won two games by shutouts, and reached the semi-finals before being eliminated Sunday morning. The Cascades Peewees and A.B.S. Tracs Inc. Bantams both played three games but failed to make the playoff round.

The Kin Novices started the tournament Friday afternoon with a 7-0 victory over the TCDMHA Rebels from the Township of Chatsworth. Andrea Dingman led the way with a hat trick, and Aubrey Cousineau picked up the shutout.

Early Saturday afternoon, the Novice Rock improved to 2-0 with a 4-0 win over the North Middlesex Jr. Stars from Parkhill. Raegan Stacey had two goals for St. Marys, and Cousineau again notched the shutout.

Late Saturday afternoon, the Kin Novices dropped a 4-1 decision to Kincardine Kinucks in their final round-robin game.

Defensive battle

The two teams met again in the semi-finals early Sunday morning, and Kincardine emerged with a close 1-0 victory. “They’re a pretty good defensive team,” coach Cousineau reported. “We were back and forth with them. Everyone played well, but we couldn’t get to their goalie. Their defence was pretty strong.”

In the championship final later in the day, Kinucks edged the Owen Sound Ice Hawks 2-1.

The Cascades Peewees started their weekend Friday afternoon with a 2-2 tie against Lambton Attack. On Friday night, the Peewee suffered a 10-0 defeat against Tillsonburg. The Cascades Peewees’ final game was a 4-0 loss to Kincardine Saturday morning.

The A.B.S. Tracs Bantams started their tournament Friday with a 2-0 loss to Kincardine in the afternoon and a 3-0 loss to Saugeen Shores later that night.

On Saturday afternoon, the Bantam Rock battled Lucan Irish to a 0-0 stalemate. The tie apparently eliminated both teams from the competition.
