They hadn’t lost often all season, but Medicine Hat’s Attack ringette team weren’t able to keep up that hot pace at provincials.

The under-14 A team went 3-2 at Lethbridge this past weekend, winding up fifth in the tournament.

“It was a tough tourney weekend but I think the girls took some learnings away for the next time they get to compete at this level,” head coach Marty Robinson wrote in a press release.

An opening-day 7-4 loss to St. Albert was a tough way to start for Medicine Hat, but they rebounded with a 10-2 win over the host Rattlers.

At that point, however, they couldn’t afford another loss. By dropping a 7-2 decision to Calgary’s Bowview Au, their playoff hopes were dashed.

Instead of folding the tent, the Attack finished strong. They beat Red Deer’s Riot 6-5, then shut out Sherwood Park Savage 7-0, with goalies Sydney Carlson and Devyn Amundson splitting duties in earning the clean sheet.

Sheridyn Herman led the Attack with 11 goals on the weekend. Amanda Robinson added seven, then a trio of players (Andie Suhai, Marley Rose and Allison Mason) each had two.

It was the team’s second year in a row qualifying for the provincial finals.
