Bell Scores Winner in OT to Defeat US 1-0 in Final Round-Robin Game
Jan 11, 2017, 4:05 pm

Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team has advanced to the semifinals at the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship, finishing with a perfect 3-0-0 record in the preliminary round after a 1-0 overtime win against the United States.

Ashton Bell (Deloraine, Man./Westman, MFMHL) netted the overtime winner for Canada, scoring 1:57 into the extra period to lift Canada to victory. Danika Ranger (Uxbridge, Ont./Durham, PWHL) earned the shutout between the pipes, turning away all 23 of the Americans attempts.

“That goal was just a great team effort; they freed up the puck for me and I got a clear shot on net. It was a great game all the way out to the D and up to the forwards, and our goalie had an amazing game. It was just a great team win.”

Bell on her overtime winner and Canada’s performance

“I think the whole team played very well and very aggressive. We all had that drive to play against the U.S. team because it’s such a great rivalry and I think we battled hard throughout the whole game and it was just a great game overall.”


Congrats to Wildcats standout, Ashton Bell, who was named Captain of Team Canada at U18 World Championships

Wildcats Complete Another Weekend Road Sweep
Jan 8, 2017, 8:30 pm

The Westman Wildcats completed a very difficult 3 game road trip with a 3-2 victory over Eastman today in Steinbach.  

After a scoreless 1st period, Andrea Sanderson got the ball rolling with a breakaway goal at the 13:41 mark of the 2nd period off a nice feed from Shae Vallotton.  The Wildcats would extend the lead 3 minutes later when Shae Vallotton hammered home a point shot top shelf to make it 2-0.  Andrea Sanderson picked up the assist on the goal. Eastman would respond a minute and a half later as they crashed the net and buried a rebound to make it 2-1.  That is how the period would end.

The Selects pushed hard in the 3rd period and managed to score on the powerplay at the 13:32 mark.  The Wildcats would have a good response, however, on the following shift as Andrea Sanderson ripped a shot over the goaltender's glove to restore the one goal lead with 12:36 remaining.  Mckenzie Meek picked up the assist on the play.  The Wildcats would shut it down from there despite a couple of shaky moments to preserve the victory.

Kaitie Slator picked up the win in net stopping 27 of 29 shots.  The Wildcats took 2 of 5 minor penalties.


Wildcats Win 1-0 Over Eastman
Jan 7, 2017, 8:19 pm

An early 2nd period goal was all the Westman Wildcats needed as Jenna Marshall stopped all 18 shots she faced to secure a 1-0 victory over Eastman this afternoon in Steinbach.  

Brooky Klein hammered home a rebound off a shot from Mckenzie Meek that bounced off the post after the Eastman goalie got a piece of her shot.  

Westman fired 27 shots on the Selects net.  Eastman took the lone minor penalty in the game.

The Wildcats and Eastman will square off again tomorrow in Steinbach.

Wildcats defeat Pembina Valley 4-3
Jan 7, 2017, 10:55 am

It was déjà vu all over again as the Westman Wildcats traveled to Manitou to face the Pembina Valley Hawks on a cold and blustery night in a battle for 1st place and once again the Wildcats secured a 4-3 victory...this time in regulation.

The Hawks staked a 1-0 lead midway through the 1st period when they hit a girl coming off the bench with a stretch pass for a breakaway goal. The Wildcats outshot the Hawks 10-7 in the period while the Hawks took the lone penalty of the period.

in the 2nd period the Hawks jumped out to an early 2-0 lead when the Wildcats were caught on a poor line change that resulted in another breakaway goal for a 2-0 lead.  The Wildcats responded quickly as Mckenzie Meek scored 10 seconds later to make it 2-1.  Paige Hubbard and Brooky Klein picked up the assists.  Aly O'Hara tied the game with a wrist shot short side on the powerplay at the 13:40 mark of the period with Cammy Clyne picking up the assist.  The Wildcats would take the lead with 4:51 remaining in the period as Andrea Sanderson scored on a high wrist shot to the blocker side from the high slot.  Aly O'Hara picked up the lone assist.  They would extend the lead on the powerplay 28 seconds later as Andrea Sanderson tipped home a Tori Williams point shot.  The period would end 4-2. The Hawks outshot the Wildcats 12-6 in the period and took 3 of 5 penalties.  

The Wildcats played a solid 3rd period to protect the lead with a late powerplay goal by the Hawks making the game a little more interesting.  The Hawks outshot the Wildcats 12-8 and each team took 2 minor penalties.

Kaitie Slator picked up the win in net, stopping 28 of 31 shots.  The Wildcats now travel to Steinbach to play the Eastman Selects in two games on Saturday and Sunday.

Wildcats vs Vancouver Island
Dec 31, 2016, 4:53 pm

Two unfortunate bounces were the Wildcats undoing on Friday in their last round robin game vs Vancouver Island at the Mac's tourney.  The Wildcats needed a win for a chance to advance to the semifinals on Saturday but unfortunately came up with a 3-3 tie.

VI got on the board at the 15:26 mark of the opening period as a soft backhand shot deflected off a Westman defender and eluded the Wildcats netminder for a 1-0 lead.  Westman tied it up with a great effort on the wraparound from Aly O'Hara at the 5:27 mark of the period but VI again took the lead with just over two minutes remaining on a broken defensive zone coverage.  The period would end 2-1.  The Wildcats squandered 4 powerplay opportunities.  Shots were 12-3 in favour of Westman.

The Wildcats came out with plenty of intensity in the 2nd period and would tie it up at the 11:19 mark of the period as Mckenzie Meek buried a shot from the slot with the assists coming from Tori Williams and Paige Hubbard.  The would take the lead two minutes later as Aly O'Hara scored her second of the game with assists going to Cammy Clyne and Andrea Sanderson. The period would end 3-2 for Westman.  The Wildcats took 2 of 3 minor penalties and outshot VI 15-8.

In the 3rd the Wildcats pushed for the victory. VI would tie it unfortunately as a shot came off the backwall, went through the Wildcats defenders' skates right to a waiting Seals forward who buried it into the back of the net.  The Wildcats would give it all they had and had a number of good chances but could not beat the VI goaltender and the game would end 3-3. Westman took 4 of 7 penalties in the 3rd period and were outshot by VI 14-9.

Jenna Marshall suffered the loss in net and was victim to some bad luck.  Final shots on net were 36-20 in favour of Westman.

The Wildcats get back to league action next weekend on the road with a game in Manitou vs Pembina Valley on Friday night and two games in Steinbach on Saturday and Sunday vs Eastman.


Wildcats vs Melville
Dec 29, 2016, 9:28 pm

The Westman Wildcats built a 2-0 lead after two periods but were unable to seal the deal as Melville scored two 3rd period goals, one on a 5-3 man advantage, to earn a tie in the round robin game.

Shae Vallotton and Aly O'Hara scored for Westman. Kaitie Slator stopped 37 of 39 shots in the game.

The Wildcats must win on Friday morning against the Vancouver Island Seals if they hope to move on to the semi-final on Saturday.

Wildcats vs Rocky Mountain
Dec 29, 2016, 10:28 am

Four powerplay goals against and no powerplay goals in 4 opportunities of their own were too much to overcome as the Westman Wildcats were defeated 5-1 by the Rocky Mountain Raiders on Wednesday night at the Mac's.

Jenna Marshall was superb in net for the Wildcats as she stopped 43 of 48 shots, many of them high quality scoring opportunities, as the Raiders came at Westman in waves at times through the game.

The opening period saw the Wildcats survive the early energy and hard work displayed by the Raiders only to have 3 consecutive penalties put them behind the proverbial gun again.  The Raiders would score the only goal of the opening period on a 5 on 3 man advantage.  Shots on goal in the period were 18-2 in favour of Rocky Mountain.

The Wildcats worked hard to regain momentum in the 2nd period but were scored on again at the 15:35 mark of the period as the Raiders scored their only even strength goal of the game to make it 2-0.  The Wildcats came back hard and the game settled into an end to end affair with each team trading opportunities. Unfortunately, a rather weak penalty call in the neutral zone took away all their momentum as the Raiders scored again on the powerplay to make it 3-0. They would follow that up again just over a minute later on another powerplay to make it 4-0. After a timeout, the Wildcats regained their composure and managed to keep the score at 4-0 after two periods.  The Raiders again outshot the Wildcats 14-8 in the period.

Rocky Mountain would score their 4th powerplay goal of the game with 8:44 remaining to make it 5-0.  Cammy Clyne would respond with an even strength goal with just under a minute remaining to make it 5-1.  

Final shots on net were 48-15.  As stated earlier, Jenna Marshall was superb in the Wildcats net and picked up the Westman game star. The Wildcats took 7 of 11 penalties in the game.

The Wildcats face off against Melville in a very important matchup today at 4:00 PM as both teams are tied in the standings.
