Atom girls win league banner

The Maple Ridge Barracudas girls hockey team went undefeated in atom C1 regular season play, winning the league banner with an impressive 10-0-0 record.

The Barracudas, a team of only 12 players, entered the season with four girls who are new to hockey, and two more who moved up from the novice age group to fill the roster.

But with strong coaching from head coach Darren Boyd and assistants Dave Lige and Bruce Vasarhely, the team bonded quickly.

The undefeated season reflected a combination of great goal-keeping from Emily Branter with strong defence from Sierra Boyd, Faith Lige, Monica Madsen and Emma Vasarhely.

A hungry set of forwards created a lot of pressure on offence with Tristan Craig, Gabrielle Hankey, Chelsea Karsten, Adriana Mostrenko, Yanika Noel, McKenna Stuart and Hailey Thomas.

The team is 2-0 in the playoffs having knocked off Surrey C2 5-0 and the Langley C2 team 4-1. Their next playoff game is Saturday against Burnaby for a playoff banner.
