Ice Dragons win peewee female hockey tournament

The Penticton peewee Peaches Lingerie Ice Dragons won a tournament in Merritt.

The Penticton peewee Peaches Lingerie Ice Dragons won five straight games to clinch the Merritt female recreation tournament last weekend.

After picking up wins over Surrey and Merritt, the Ice Dragons defeated Salmon Arm for a second time, 5-3 in the championship game.

“The girls played well all weekend,” said Ice Dragons coach Andy Oakes of his first-year group. “It was the first real opportunity to play in competition with five games in two days.”

Oakes said his team came together as a group. Among the things he likes about his team is their work ethic. He also praised their passing and their ability to work together.

The Ice Dragons play in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association and have three wins, one loss and two ties. They are first in their division with eight points.

The Ice Dragons are next in action against Salmon Arm at home at McLaren Arena on Nov. 13 from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m.

The Ice Dragons are from Penticton, Naramata, Summerland and Osoyoos. The team is as follows: Patience Wittenberg, Mya Halladay, Emma Wilson, Dakota Annett, Gabrielle Gracia, Gabby Lindsay, Brooklynn Busch, Alison Rempel, Emily Oakes, Kaylee Bird, Olivia Linton, Amy Berekoff, Ashley McMillan, Kaitlyn Rempel, Kassie Leloup and Amber Wyse.

Oakes is assisted on the bench by Todd Lindsay, Casey McMillan and Dan Wilson.
