Maple Ridge's Sarah Thon wins U-18 B.C. Cup

Maple Ridge’s Sarah Thon and Team Falcons captured the 2012 Female U-18 B.C. Cup with a 3-2 victory over Team Eagles on Sunday. The 2012 B.C. Cup features the top female players in B.C. and the Yukon, born in 1995 and 1996.

Thon, a five-foot-nine defenceman, played for the Pacific Steelers of the Junior Women’s Hockey League, in which she registered two goals and four assists in 31 games.

A total of 100 players from around the province and the Yukon were selected from the zone camps to compete at the U-18 B.C. Cup, including Maple Ridge’s Payge Pena, who played for Team Thunderbirds at the tournament.

Pena, a forward, played last season with the Fraser Valley Phantom of the B.C. Girls’ Midget AAA league, scoring 20 points in 48 games.

The B.C. Cup is the final evaluation camp prior to the Team B.C. Provincial Camp, that will take place later this month in Salmon Arm.
