Meadow Ridge Barracudas champs
The Meadow Ridge Barracudas were crowned champions at the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association’s midget A female hockey tournament over the weekend.
The Barracudas went 4-1 at the tournament, opening with a 4-2 win over South Island.
The Barracudas fought hard in a 3-1 loss to the host Kamloops team, but rebounded with a 9-0 victory against St. Albert, and a 2-1 win against North Island in the semifinals.
That set up a tournament final with Salmon Arm, which the Barracudas took by a score of 5-3 to claim the championship title.
Sabrina Mathias and Kassandra Johnston played exceptional in goal. Kim White, Ashley Gavin, Madeline Cockrill, Jessica Baker, Danielle Baker, Heather Lacasse, Kiah Cardiff, and Kiana Henry helped provide offence up front, while Kirsten Langston, Sydney Langston, Megan Theisen and Breezy Gosling played solid defence in all five games.
