In the Navy ranks, there’s a group of players who know how to bounce back from a defeat.

The Navy squad lost its opening game on the Cowichan Indoor Hockey League schedule at the Island Savings Centre Sunday, 5-3 to the Red team, but then bounced back to score a big 8-2 victory over the Royal squad.

Kim Smith and Sophia Murray set the pace for the Red team with a pair of goals each. Brittany Smith added the other marker.

The Navy team got single goals from Jenna Ellison, Ashlee Noyes and Buddy Monks.

The way the Navy regrouped for the next match against the Royal team was impressive.

The Navy was still scoring right to the final whistle with its eighth marker off a short corner.

Krystyna Neal lead the way with a hat trick. Ellison (2), Noyes, Monks and Chelsey Cleemoff added singles.

Stefanie Langkammer and Sara Goodman replied for the Royals.

The day concluded with a 3-3 tie between the Green and Yellow teams.

Shylayne Davidson (2) and Brooke Sonne tallied for the Green team.

Madelyn Smith, Tai Williams and Michelle Pewarchuk had goals for Yellow.
