Maple Ridge’s Madison Sands first star at B.C. midget AAA all-star game

Local blueliner scores tying goal at provincial all-star game Sunday in Langley

Maple Ridge’s Madison Sands was named the first star at the B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League all-star game on Sunday after she scored the tying to send the game to overtime.

Sands and her Team Blue won the game 3-2 over Team White in a shoot-out.

The majority of the game belonged to Team White, however, who took an early lead thanks to a goal by Miranda Pendergraft of the Thompson-Okanagan Rockets in the first period.

Mckayla Yuris of the Kootenay Wildcats scored to put Team White up by two, and the game remained that way until late in the third period.

Maple Ridge’s Payge Pena of the Fraser Valley Phantom got Team Blue on the board with seven minutes left to play, bringing Team Blue to within one goal.

Sands, also from the Fraser Valley Phantom, tied things up two and a half minutes later to send the game to overtime. Team Blue eventually prevailed in the shootout, completing the unlikely comeback.

Also playing in the game was Maple Ridge’s Emily Jude of the Vancouver Fusion, who played for Team White.

In all, 40 players (12 defencemen, 24 forwards and four goaltenders) were selected from the province’s five female midget AAA teams.

In addition to being named the first star at the all-star game, Sands is the B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League’s top blueliner, with 14 points in 15 games.

Pena, a forward, has 13 points in 14 games, including 10 goals, while Jude has three goals in 12 games this year with the Fusion.
