Medicine Hat’s U12B Gators left a weekend tournament in Regina in victorious fashion.
The Gators captured bronze at the Queen City Classic over the weekend. They are usually named the Fury but adapted the Gator name due to another team already registered in the tournament as Fury.
In the round robin, the Gators won three of their four matches, starting off with a 12-2 win over the Saskatoon Fury. Myah Weber and Ally Martin each had a hat trick in the win.
They lost 6-4 to the Regina Coyotes, who eventually won gold. The Gators had a 5-3 comeback win over the Regina Blazers and an 8-5 win over the Saskatoon Riot.
This help the team finish second in their pool, putting them into the bronze medal game on Sunday against the BP Rage, where the girls came away with a 6-2 win.
Danna Sawchuk was in net for the medal game, Olivia Ulbricht and Martin each had two goals and Brinley Cross and Annalise Robins each also scored.
They will be in action this weekend in Calgary.
