Surrey Falcons win first Pacific Coast Classic

Bantam A team defeated Peace Country 3-1 in championship final.

The Surrey Falcons defeated the Peace Country Storm 3-1 at the Richmond Oval on Sunday to win the bantam A division of the first Pacific Coast Female Rep Hockey Classic.

Priya Sidhu, Riley Alexander and Priya Dhaliwal scored for Surrey, while Emma Hall, Tessa Younger and Mya Taylor had assists.

Rosetta Maggio earned the win in what was a physical match. Peace Country recorded 33 minutes in penalties, including an ejection for boarding, while Surrey had eight.

The Falcons went undefeated in the inaugural tournament, including a 3-0 win over the Prince George Cougars earlier that day.

Surrey opened the Pacific Coast Classic on Friday with a 9-0 win over the Vancouver Island North Impact, then downed the Richmond Ravens 7-1. The Falcons also defeated the Storm on Saturday by the same 3-1 score.

Sophia Christopherson, MacKenzie Brown, Emily Laroue, Emily Duchak and Chelsea Humphreys were standouts on defense throughout the tournament, while Danika Pasqua, Alicia Perez and Sadie Stoppler were key contributors offensively. Beverly Lynch recorded two wins, including a shutout. Maggio also had a shutout.

Jesse Sanghe and Nicola Murray supported their team each game despite being unable to play due to injuries, while affiliates Shona Bal, Brittlyn Drayson, Danika Unger and Rebecca Lim put forth strong efforts in their place.

The Falcons – who feature players from Surrey, Langley and Maple Ridge – open league play back in Richmond on Friday after finishing the placement round tied for first with the North Shore Avalanche, going 7-1 and outscoring opponents 49-8.
