Ring Robbers create exciting comeback

Shuswap pulls out a tie in last 15 seconds of game.

The Shuswap Ring Robbers Novice Ringette team faced Westside for a home game at the Enderby arena on Saturday.

It took a while for the Great Robber’s Train to generate steam in this game, as Westside took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission. Although Shuswap was able to produce a few chances, the regular goaltender for Westside stood true to form and turned aside all shots put his way in the opening frame.

With Westside up by two early in the second, Delaney Perry opened the scoring for the Ring Robbers, hoisting the ring up over the sprawling Westside netminder.

Westside would come back with another pair to take a three-goal lead, before Cadence Petitclerc-Crosby started the comeback for the Ring Robbers. Westside would put another one in, and should have felt safe with the amount of their lead, but Petitclerc-Crosby’s natural hat trick put Shuswap behind by one with two minutes left in the game.

The Ring Robbers pounded shot after shot at the Westside net, all turned away at the last second.

But with 15 seconds left in the game, Natasha Kociuba ripped the ring low short side to complete the comeback for the Ring Robbers and finish with a 5-5 tie.

Assisting on Shuswap’s goals were Teagan Maddock, Abby May and Katie Findlay.

The Ring Robbers resume play in the new year.
