Manitobans in the medals

TWO Manitoba senior women's hockey teams are coming home from the Western Shield tournament in British Columbia with brand-new hardware to shine.

The Manitoba Blazing Stars claimed gold in Pool B play after a 3-0 shut-out of the Grande Prairie Panthers on Sunday. The team had to change its name from Northern Stars to avoid conflict with the other Manitoba team, who carried on in Pool A play as the Northern Stars. The latter captured a Pool A bronze medal Sunday with a 5-1 trouncing of the Delta Jets.

 

Double silvers, 7 all-stars

WINNIPEG'S Prairie Fire ringette team earned a silver medal at the National Ringette League championship, battling to a narrow 6-5 loss to the Calgary RATH in Fredericton on Saturday. In the national under-19 tournament, the Winnipeg Magic also brought home silver after a one-point game, dropping the final match 5-4 to the Nepean Ravens. In all, seven Manitobans were named to all-star rosters after the tournament: in the under-16 division, Bonivital Angel Kendall Yasui received the honour. Magic goalkeeper Jaime Simpson and Bonivital Angel Jessica Rex were named to the under-19 all-star team. At the National Ringette League level, Prairie Fire goalie Amy Clarkson, defender Lindsay Burns and centre Sheena MacDonald were named to the first all-star team and forward Ainsley Ferguson was awarded a spot on the second.
