Ringette team wins B.C. silver

The Port Coquitlam Ridge Meadows Ringette Association won silver at the provincials in Prince George over the weekend U-14A.

The team had a league record of 13-2-0 and were the Lower Mainland champions.

They opened the provincials against a tough Kelowna team they had never beaten, and triumphed 6-5 over the Thompson-Okanagan champs.

Their second game was a 5-4 loss to Fraser Valley.

Game three brought a 6-4 win over Vernon. No other teams in the provincials beat either Kelowna or Vernon.

Their final round-robin game was a 4-3 win over North West Vancouver.

The girls advanced into the gold medal game on a bye, entering as the top seed.  Vernon and Kelowna played each other that morning to see who would advance, and Kelowna managed a win in sudden-death overtime.

This time Kelowna had the best of a 7-3 victory.
