“The girls played really well this weekend,” said Vees coach Shawn Black. “They skated hard, they passed the puck around really well, they back checked well, and they had lots of fun.”

The atom Ice Dragons went 2-2 with two losses to the South Okanagan, while they defeated Kelowna 6-1 and Merritt 7-1.

The novice Ice Dragons tied two and lost two. Coach Don Wrigglesworth said his team performed well. They were edged by Kamloops 4-3 in their first meeting, then lost 7-5. Against Kelowna, they earned 7-7 and 3-3 ties.

“It was lots of fun,” said Wrigglesworth, adding the players had a great time getting tournament experience.
