The Westman Wildcats were at the MTS Iceplex in Winnipeg this past weekend for the 2011 Manitoba Provincial AA Midget Female Tournament. Friday morning’s game had the Wildcats up against the Winnipeg Titans and the Cats came out very slowly and paid the price for this as they found themselves down 5 – 0 after the first period. A quick regroup in between periods had the Cats come out and play much better, scoring 2 goals of their own in the second period making the score 5 – 2 after the second period. The Wildcats put on a lot of pressure in the third period but were unable to score and the final score was 6 – 2 for the Titans. Rachelle Lougheed was in net for the Wildcats and shots were 33 – 25 in favor of Westman. The Wildcat point getters were Teagan Pringle and Karissa Kirkup with a goal each and single assists to Elise Badiou, Samantha Dyck, Amanda Coey and Kiara DeKezel.

Friday evening’s game had the Wildcats up against the Yellowhead Chiefs with the winner of this game moving on to the medal round. The Wildcats came out very hard in this game and controlled a lot of the territorial play throughout the game and outshot Yellowhead 45 – 21. Period scores were 2 – 0 Yellowhead after the first period with 2 powerplay markers, 3 – 1 Yellowhead after the second period and after a tremendous third period the Wildcats came back for a 4 – 3 final score. Rachelle Lougheed was in net for the Wildcats and point getters were Karissa Kirkup and Gina Williams with a goal and an assist each, Elise Badiou and Bailee Goodon with a goal each, two assists to Kaitlyn Whaley, and single assists to Teagan Pringle and Kiara DeKezel.

Saturday evening’s game had the Wildcats playing the Pembina Trail Twins with the winner of this game moving on to the semi-finals on Sunday. The Wildcats came out of the gate flying and never stopped from the start of the game until the final buzzer. The Wildcats outshot the Twins 45 - 17, with period scores of 0 – 0 after the first period, 2 – 0 after the second period for the Wildcats and final score was 3 – 0 Westman. Rachelle Lougheed played well in the Wildcat net getting the shutout. Wildcat point getters were Karissa Kirkup with a goal and an assist, Jessica Vallotton and Elise Badiou with a goal each and a single assist to Jaycee Magwood.

Sunday morning had the Wildcats playing the Pembina Valley Hawks in the semi-final game and the Cats came out hard in this game but Pembina Valley was the more experienced team in this game and this showed. The Wildcats battled hard and in fact dominated in the second period but just didn’t capitalize on enough of their chances and the Hawks did. Period scores were 3 – 1 PV after the first period, 4 – 2 PV after two periods and a 5 – 2 final score for the Hawks. Shots were 34 – 22 in PV’s favor with Rachelle Lougheed in the Westman net. Point getters were Jessica Vallotton with a goal and an assist and Teagan Pringle with a goal, and an assist going to Jaycee Magwood.

We then had a 2 hour break before playing the bronze medal game against the Eastman Selects and as usual this was a real battle between these 2 teams with plenty of chances at both ends of the ice. Period scores were 1 – 1 after the first period, 2 – 2 after the second period, and the final score ending up 4 -2 in favor of Eastman. Rachelle Lougheed was in net and the Wildcat point getters were Bailee Goodon and Karissa Kirkup with a goal each and single assists to Jaycee Magwood, Karissa Haney, and Kiara DeKezel. That wraps up game competition for the 2010 – 2011 season with the Wildcat Prospects Camp the second week of April being the team’s last official function of the year.

After a twelve day layoff the Westman Wildcats hit the ice this past weekend with two exhibition games in preparation for the upcoming playoffs. In the first game the Cats took on the Westman Senior Ladies in Hartney Friday evening. It was soon evident that there was some rust due to the lay off for the Cats while the Senior Ladies came skating hard and trying to take advantage of the Cats, the first period was fairly evenly played with both teams having scoring chances. In the second the Senior Ladies picked up their play and the Cats were slow to respond. The Senior Ladies were able to take advantage of a Cats penalty and got the only goal of the period. The Wildcats came out in the third after regrouping at the break and showed a strong determination to win by scoring on the first shift of the period. This seemed to give the team a lift as they started to play a stronger game with good puck movement and skating  and scoring 3 more goals. This gave the Cats and call up goaltender Sarah Paulson a 4-1 win. Point getters in this game: Karissa Kirkup 1 goal and 2 assists, Jessica Vallotton 3 assists, Samantha Dyck 1 goal, Amanda Coey 2 goals, Sarah Paulson 1 assist and Bree Vanhove 1 assist.


The second game of the weekend found the Cats in Melville Sask. for a noon game on Sunday. This was a rematch of two weeks earlier in which the Cats lost a 2-0 game. This game was much the same as the last with scoring chances at both ends of the ice. The Cats were able to score at 7:26 of the first. This was the only score until midway through the third when the Cats took a penalty and Melville capitalized 10 seconds into their power play and tied up the game and this was how game ended 1-1. The only goal of the game for the Cats was scored by Samantha Dyck assisted by Jessica Vallotton.


The Wildcats will now start the first round of MFMHL playoffs with a best of 3 series against the Central Plains Capitals. Game 1 is in Hartney on Tuesday, March 1 at 8:00 p.m., Game 2 is in Portage on Friday, March 4 at 7:30 p.m. and Game 3 (if necessary) is in Hartney on Saturday, March 5 at 7:00 p.m.


Also returning to the Wildcats lineup after spending the last 10 days in Halifax at the 2011 Canada Winter Games is Kiara DeKezel who proudly represented the Westman Wildcats on Team Manitoba U-18 Female Team. Team Manitoba had 6 wins and 1 loss but the loss came in a crucial qualifying game which relegated them to the placement games and a fifth place finish.
