Kootenay Wild net two shutout wins over Vancouver Island

The Kootenay Wild AAA Female Midget hockey team picked up two wins and a tie in BC Hockey action last weekend.

The Kootenay Wild Female Midget AAA hockey team earned five of six points in Campbell River from the Vancouver Island Seals last weekend.

The Kootenay Wild Female Midget AAA hockey team picked up five of a possible six points on a three-game road trip to Vancouver Island on the weekend.

The Wild capped off their most successful weekend of the season with two wins and a tie against the Vancouver Island Seals based out of Campbell River. The five-point weekend launched the 3-4-2 Kootenay team into a tie for third place in the Midget AAA standings.

With just 10 skaters, the Kootenay team finished off the weekend with a 2-0 shutout victory on Sunday, after skating to a 3-3 draw on Saturday, and a 2-0 win on Friday.

Yellowknife native Abby Webster notched the winning goal when she opened the scoring for the Wild at 12:28 of the second period on a setup from Castlegar’s Kelsey Patterson. The score held up, and Patterson iced it tallying her fifth goal of the season, with an empty netter with 49 seconds remaining in regulation.

In Saturday’s match, the Wild fought back from a 3-1 deficit to tie it in the third period and earn a single point. Patterson tied the game at 1-1 with five minutes left in the opening frame, but the Seals went ahead on a goal from Eva Debaie at 11:49 of the second. The Seals made it 3-1 72 seconds into the third, but Emily Tebulte scored 32 seconds later to draw the Wild within one and Haley Elias scored her first goal of the season at 10:52 of the third period to tie the match at 3-3.

The Wild also shut out the Seals 2-0 on Friday night, and will head to the coast this weekend for a three-game set against the undefeated Greater Vancouver Comets.

The Major Midget Ice also returns to action with a trip to Nanaimo to play a pair of matches against the 2-10-0 North Island Silvertips.
