Midget female Caps come together in Richmond

The midget female Cowichan Valley Capitals played their best hockey of the season last weekend as they claimed the silver medal at the Richmond Ravens Female Ice Classic tournament.

"Everyone really came together and played as a team," trainer Kim Liddle said. "This is the strongest I’ve ever seen them play. It was a great way to finish off the season."

The girls managed just one win during the regular season, but took their play to a completely new level at the Richmond tournament.

"I believe the difference maker was every single one of the girls on the ice gave 100 per cent and put in a huge effort to work together as a team," Liddle said.

"There was a level of positive energy that worked to see plays, passes and defence come together and our goaltending was outstanding."

Goaltender Meena Manhas was named Game MVP in Cowichan’s opener, a 1-1 tie with Nanaimo. Taylor Uhlman scored for Cowichan, assisted by Taylor Siddall. Manhas then earned back-toback shutouts as Cowichan beat host Richmond 1-0 and San Jose 2-0. Siddall scored the lone goal against Richmond, assisted by Zoe Drysdale and Lexi Liddle. Defender Kristen Paddle was named Game MVP.

Angela Ramwell and Tia Bourodemos scored against San Jose, with Maddi McKenzie picking up an assist and Jenner Court taking Game MVP honours.

Court went on to score both Cowichan goals in a 4-2 loss to Tri Cities, with Game MVP Sonja Lindberg collecting an assist.

Nanaimo prevailed in the final, winning 5-0. Drysdale earned Game MVP honours.

Bob Court served as the team’s head coach, assisted by Gary Ramwell and Kayla Liddle.
