Bruce, Bennett stars on ice
While the Winnipeg Women's High School Hockey League moved into the division finals Monday night, two players were honoured for their performance on the ice.
In the CTV Division 1, FRC Centurions blue-liner Andrea Bruce was named one of the WWHSHL's players of the week after making big plays to help lock down her squad's series victory over the St. Mary's Academy Flames. Besides her defensive work, Bruce put up a goal in game 1 and an assist in the second game.
The Centurions are now battling Dakota for the division championship.
Over in the league's Winnipeg Free Press Division 2, Selkirk Royals forward Natalie Bennett earned the player-of-the-week nod after helping lift her squad to a series victory over the Miles Macdonell Buckeyes. Bennett scored three goals in the series, which went to three games, including two in the 5-4 deciding win. The Royals moved on to face Westwood in the division finals, which kicked off last night.
Schreyer MJHL's top gun
After potting four points in two playoff games last week, Winnipeg Blues skater Joel Schreyer has been named the MJHL Recycle Everywhere Player of the Week.
Schreyer, 20, notched a goal and added three assists in two playoff games, while the Blues moved on to face the Selkirk Steelers in the Addison Division semifinal. Runners-up for the player-of-the-week honour were OCN Blizzard forward Darien Cardinal, 20, and Portage Terriers forward Riley Hay, 20.
