After six ringette games in three days it’s safe to say Medicine Hat’s under-12 Element players were exhausted.
In particular, goalie Rheagyn Heinrichs.
Heinrichs carried the load, facing a total of 162 shots as her team went 3-3 to finish fourth in their division.
The weekend started well with wins of 5-1 over Macdonald Wildfire and 8-2 over Dakota Fusion. An 8-5 loss to Buffalo Plains Rush was the only thing keeping them from a round robin pool win, though they took second thanks to a 5-3 win over East St. Paul.
Airdrie’s Sting were the class of the division, beating Medicine Hat 10-1 in a semifinal before claiming gold with an 8-1 win over Buffalo Plains Sunday. The Element didn’t have enough left and fell 5-2 to Regina in the bronze medal matchup.
Jaida Wallis, Jena Harty, Kamryn Reid, Leah Mason, Ryan Sweet, Kylee Waldegger, Rylin Lehr and Grace Carrier all had goals for Element during the tournament, though no breakdown was reported.
In Calgary Ringette League play, Medicine Hat earned a pair of wins over the Calgary Braves Saturday.
The wins, 6-3 and 7-4, improved Medicine Hat’s record to 9-1 in league play. The Braves fell to 6-3-1.
In under-16 Calgary league play, Medicine Hat lost 8-4 and 9-6 Saturday to the SC Jets.
The team is now 1-11 in the standings.
They’re not technically first in their division, but the under-14 Blaze are unbeaten. And the other Hat team in the division, the Vortex, is right behind them with one loss. Blaze was 9-0 going in to Tuesday’s cross-town matchup against the 8-1 Vortex â€” their only league matchup of the season. No score was reported by press time.
That’s in the under-14 B division. In the A division, the Medicine Hat Attack are 9-2-1 and in second spot.
Medicine Hat’s two under-10 Step 1 teams are seeing a lot of each other, and played again last week.
On Wednesday, the Chaos earned an 8-3 win over the Monsters. Breanna Rugg, Margot Kerr and Erika Want had two goals apiece while Kennedy Kleinknecht and Leighton Wright had the others for Chaos. Anika Rostotski-Ashton replied with a pair for the Monsters while Alyssa Makepeace had the other tally.
