Penticton rinks were hot with hockey action during the Penticton Minor Hockey Association’s Fire on Ice female tournament Dec.18-20.

The midget rec Vees went 2-1-1 finishing second behind Kelowna. The Vees opened with a 2-0 win over Kamloops, then lost 3-2 to Kelowna. They bounced back with a second win over Kamloops and earned a 3-3 tie against Kelowna.

“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.

The next scheduled PMHA tournament is Jan. 8-10, 2016 for midget recreation.
