Medicine Hat’s two under-14 B teams are clearly the best in their Calgary Ringette League division, but aren’t allowed in the Calgary playoffs. But there is a benefit to finishing well.
According to a press release from the Vortex team, a top-three finish in league play will ensure a better seed at provincials March 17-19, fittingly in Calgary.
Thanks to another unbeaten weekend from Vortex and Blaze, those seeds are now locked in.
Vortex beat Calgary’s Hericanes 9-7 and Staccato 9-6 Saturday, improving to 12-4 in league play and guaranteeing a top-three seed. Bree Becker’s six-goal performance in the opener led the way, plus goals from defenders Nolah Reid and Hailey Hudson.
Against Staccato Megan Taylor, Lexi Owen, Olivia Sim and Jessica Heidel each had a pair, with Reid rounding out the offence.
As for Blaze, they’re guaranteed first place thanks to a 15-1 record. On Saturday they beat Indus 6-1 and Bowview Shock 12-2. Delaney Mastel had a hat trick in the first game and four in the second, Jae Shott had two in the first and three in the second, Becky Savoy rounded out the scoring in the first game while Serina Grona notched four against Shock and Joren Gramlich had the other.
Blaze has outscored its league opponents 93-35 with two games to go.
Medicine Hat’s under-16 A team forfeited its final four games in Calgary Ringette League play this past weekend, two in Rolling Hills and the other two in Calgary.
The team finishes 1-15 in their division.
The under-16 Momentum were also listed as playing in a Strathmore tournament, but no results were reported.
In under-12 play the Misfits were in Strathmore for the Laurie Morton Ruppe Memorial.
They didn’t make the medal round. Only one score was reported, a 15-6 win over Calgary’s Chaos. According to Strathmore ringette’s website they also had games against the home team and Indus.
A press release from the Misfits indicated Brooklyn Schlenker had three goals against Chaos, while Jordon Macaulay had three assists and Linsey Bechtold got the win in goal.
Also in Strathmore was the under-10 Medicine Hat Chaos, which didn’t report any scores other than to say they went 1-2 and “Sophia Stock and Kristyn Want both had excellent efforts on the ice.”
