Shuswap Ringette Icebreakers finish final home game in tie

Icebreakers head to Rutland this weekend after their 9-9 home game contest.

The Shuswap Icebreakers faced Kelowna in their final home game of the season this past weekend, coming away with a 9-9 tie.

Kelowna stormed out to a 2-0 lead early in the first, before Natasha Kociuba tucked the ring past the Kelowna netminder for the Icebreakers’ first goal of the game. Ewan Runciman scored the next three goals for Shuswap, recording a natural hat-trick and giving the Icebreakers their first lead of the game. Cadence Petitclerc-Crosby scored a pair of goals of her own in the first, the Icebreakers taking a 6-5 lead into the first intermission.

Mikaela Curdyk, Petitclerc-Crosby with her third of the game, and Kylynn Rosenberg would round out the scoring for the Icebreakers, their final goal coming with just over three minutes left in the game to tie it up. Teagan Findlay was exceptionally strong on defence for the Icebreakers, recording four helpers.
