The Black Storm went out on the ice with superior goal tending by Kellen Mooney and Denali Forsyth, and a strong defensive line including Kaelah Riley, Ava Koskimaki, Camryn Petty and Brooklyn Wright.

The offence battled hard to lead the scoring in two games that went back and forth.

The team worked it’s way into the lead with goals contributed by Emily French, Shaylah Ferguson and Sequoia Robinson. Assisted by Mackenzie Packer, Madison Collins, Marissa Dollack and Georgia Davies.

The team heads south to Osoyoos next week for the Osoyoos Jamboree.


Jillian Koroluk opened the scoring for Shuswap U10 and finished with a hat trick.

Sydney Litke added two goals and Cadence Tulak added one to the final score.

Danica Leblanc made awesome saves to keep the game close.

Despite the 6-8 loss to the Vernon U10 team, Shuswap U10 can be proud of a solid first game of the season. With a few new players to the game of ringette this year, the team played well.
