Wildcats vs Yellowhead
Oct 16, 2013, 6:41 am
The Westman Wildcats traveled to Shoal Lake to face the Chiefs in their home opener.
 
The game started out on a sour note as the Wildcats scored an "own goal" on the very first shift of the game on an unfortunate bounce.  The Wildcats had difficulty righting the ship throughout the game as they fought to control the puck and were not able to put forth a consistently good effort.  Yellowhead played with intensity and aggression throughout the game and managed to stifle any attempts the Wildcats made at putting pucks to the net.  When they did get pucks on net they were unable to get to rebounds.
 
In the second period, the Wildcats managed to even the score on a late powerplay goal by Ashton Bell.  Once again, however, Westman were only able to string together a couple of committed shifts.  
 
The 3rd period did not have any scoring and the game ended in a 1-1 draw.  Shots on goal were 24-19 in favour of Yellowhead.  Sky Brown was in net for Westman.
 
The ladies are back on the ice in Hartney tonight for practice.  They have a busy weekend ahead of them as they face Pembina Valley on Friday night, the Winnipeg Avros on Saturday afternoon, and the Winnipeg Ice on Sunday morning.

HOME OPENER vs The AVROS
Oct 13, 2013, 7:54 am

It was a busy day yesterday in Hartney as the Wildcats held their annual Hockey Jamboree in cooperation with the World Women's Hockey Day. 60+ young female players attended the event. The players ranged in age from 4 years old to11 yrs old. Each participant was on ice for 2 sessions and off ice for 1 dryland/activities session. Each player received a t-shirt and got to eat supper with the Wildcats players.

The culmination of the day's activities saw the Wildcats host the visiting Winnipeg Avros. Many of the young players and their parents opted to stay and they were in for quite an exciting home opener.

The Wildcats came out of the gate with tremendous energy in the first period and were rewarded with two goals, both of which came off of rebounds. Megan Robertson scored the first of the game with assists going to Jaycee Magwood and Ashton Bell. Kenzie Robinson made it a 2-0 game with assists going to Mackenzie Roach and Jenna Patterson. The Wildcats carried the play in the period and had the Avros on their heels.

The second period saw the flow disappear from the game as the majority of it was played with one team or the other being short handed. The game remained 2-0 through two periods.

In the third period, the Wildcats plan was to get back to the type of play that saw them have so much success in the first period. After killing another penalty early in the 3rd period, Jaycee Magwood came down the ice on a tremendous individual effort and scored on a blistering shot off the crossbar to make it a 3-0 game. Unfortunately the Wildcats continued to take penalties and completely lost any momentum they had earned back and the Avros pushed hard.

With just under 4 minutes to play Westman took a penalty in the offensive zone. The Avros pressured to get on the scoreboard and the Wildcats took another penalty in the opponent's zone. The Avros pulled their goalie to make it a 6 on 3 situation and scored on a very nice setup to make it 3-1. On the next shift the Avros, who still had the man advantage, pulled their goalie again and scored a second goal that re-directed 3 times before barely crossing the goal line. The Wildcats called a timeout and righted the ship. They were able to hold on to the 3-2 victory.

Sky Brown picked up the victory in net. The Avros outshot the Wildcats 42-20, 22-3 in the 3rd period alone when the Wildcats were forced to kill off penalty after penalty.

The Wildcats next action is Tuesday night versus Yellowhead in Shoal Lake. Game time is 7:30 PM.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Wildcats vs St. Mary's Academy Flames
Oct 6, 2013, 5:48 pm

The Wildcats finished off the weekend with an afternoon exhibition tilt versus St. Mary's Academy. From the opening faceoff the pace was brisk and the intensity was high. Jaycee Magwood opened the scoring on a wrap-around midway through the period with assists going to Megan Robertson and Ashton Bell. St. Mary's responded with a pair of goals before the end of the period.

In the 2nd period, St. Mary's extended the lead to 3-1 with an early goal. The Wildcats responded midway through the period on Jaycee Magwood's unassisted marker. Amber Tilbury kept it a 1 goal game with a superb stop on a short handed breakaway. St. Mary's restored the 2 goal lead with just under 3 minutes to play in the period.

The 3rd period was full of action as both teams pushed for the next goal. Each team had their chances on the powerplay with the St. Mary's goaltender making a game changing save on a one timer off the stick of KJ Wallace. With 5 minutes to play, St. Mary's sealed the deal on the powerplay to go ahead 5-2.

Amber Tilbury suffered the loss. Shots on goal were 32-19 in favour of St. Mary's.


Wildcats vs Ice in Winnipeg - League Game #1
Oct 6, 2013, 7:31 am

The Westman Wildcats traveled to Winnipeg on Saturday night to face the Winnipeg Ice. This game marked the beginning of the regular season for both squads. The two teams had faced one another last Sunday at the Central Plains Showcase with the Wildcats winning 3-2.

The first period was a very slopping one for the Wildcats as the were unable to put forward a consistent effort. The Ice got on the scoreboard first with rebound goal on the powerplay. Sky Brown, the Wildcats starting goalie, had just made 3 great saves but the puck careened off another player and slid just over the line. The period ended 1-0 in favour of the Ice. Shots on goal were 11-5 in favour of the Ice.

The Westman squad came out with a completely different effort in the second period. They pushed the pace of the game each and every shift resulting in Jaedon Cooke scoring the tying goal off a goal mouth scramble 5 minutes into the period. Assists went to Ashton Bell and Jaycee Magwood. Kenzie Robinson just over a minute later on another goal mouth scramble as the Wildcats began to overwhelm the Ice. Assists went to Mackenzie Roach and Shae Vallotton. Megan Robertson scored the 3rd unanswered goal with 5 minutes remaining in the period off a shot from the slot during a 4 on 4 situation. Assists went to Jaycee Magwood and Shae Vallotton. Jaycee Magwood finished off the scoring with 3:10 remaining in the 2nd period on a wraparound with assists going to Megan Robertson and Gina Williams. Shots on goal in the second period were 16-4 in favour of the Wildcats.

The 3rd period saw more of the same type of play as the Wildcats continued to dominate. However, the only goal came off the stick of Mackenzie Roach with 4 minutes remaining. It was a powerplay marker, assisted by Kenzie Robinson. Shot on goal in the 3rd period were 16-4 in favour of the Wildcats for a game total of 37-16 in favour of the Wildcats. Sky Brown picked up the victory.

Westman's next action is an exhibition tilt on Sunday, October 6th vs St. Mary's Academy Flames at 12:30 PM at the IcePlex.

Wildcats vs Winnipeg Ice at Central Plains Showcase in Portage
Sep 30, 2013, 6:35 am
The Wildcats completed action in the Central Plains Showcase on Sunday with a tilt against the Winnipeg Ice.  The Ice, a big, physical team played a very aggressive game throughout and the Wildcats pushed back which resulted in a number of penalties over the first half of the game.  The 1st period ended scoreless.
 
In the 2nd period, the Wildcats continued the parade to the penalty box.  This led to the Ice scoring the opening goal at 12:48 on a 5-3 advantage.  Westman tied it up on a powerplay marker of their own with Jaycee Magwood scoring her first of the game with assists going to Megan Robertson and Missy Hunt.  Less than a minute later though, the Ice restored the 1goal lead.  The Wildcats carried the play for the rest of the period but were unable to beat the Ice netminder.
 
The 3rd period was all Wildcats as the pressed for the tying goal.  They were rewarded at 11:35 as Jaycee Magwood notched her second of the game, assisted by Megan Roberston.  Four minutes later, Jaycee Magwood scored her hattrick goal and the eventual game winner off a brilliant shot under the bar.  The Wildcats shut down the Ice for the rest of the game.
 
Amber Tilbury picked up the win in net.  Shots on goal were 34 - 20 in favour of the Wildcats.
 
The Wildcats return to their home rink for a pair of practices this week before beginning the regular season Saturday night in Winnipeg vs the Ice at 6:30 at Dakota.  They play St. Mary's Prep School the following day at 12:30 at ReMax Arena at the Ice Plex.
