The Westman Wildcats travelled to Thief River Falls, Minnesota this past weekend to participate in the Minnesota Crunch Showcase Tournament with 8 teams coming from Minnesota, Ontario and Manitoba. Friday night saw the Wildcats playing against the host Crunch and after 2 periods of play found themselves down 3 – 0. Karissa Kirkup found the back of the net early in the third only to have the Crunch reply with 3 more of their own for a 6 – 1 victory. Shots were 39 – 30 in favor of Minnesota with Allison Rothwell in between the pipes for Westman.

Saturday morning’s game saw the Cats up against the Hawks from Pembina Valley and this was a close game with all the scoring done in the first two periods. Pembina Valley scored the lone goal in the first period and then added their second goal early in the second period. Westman stormed back to tie the game up with 2 goals of their own and then the Hawks scored 2 more to win the game by a 4 – 2 score. Wildcat goals were scored by Teagan Pringle and Kiara De Kezel and shots on net were 34 – 16 in favor of Pembina Valley with Allison Rothwll in net for the Cats.

The Saturday evening game saw Westman’s last round robin game against the Eastman Selects and again this was a close game between these provinicial rivals. The Wildcats opened up the scoring early in the first period only to be followed by 3 goals by the Selects. Westman was able to score late in the second period to bring them to within one and had numerous chances in the third but couldn’t find the twine. Westman pulled their goalie for an extra attacker and Eastman were able to score an empty net goal for a 4 – 2 final. Both of the Wildcat goals came off the hot stick of Elise Badiou. Shots were 27 – 25 in favor of Westman with Rachelle Lougheed in the Wildcat net.

Sunday morning had Westman’s final game against the Central Plains Capitals and again Westman had plenty of scoring opportunities registering 39 shots while Allison Rothwell faced 20 in the Wildcat net. The score was 1 – 1 after 60 minutes, and Westman finally solved the Capitals goaltender in overtime for the 2 -1 victory. Goal scorers for Westman were Elise Badiou and the overtime winner from Amanda Coey.

Final roster announced for Under 18 Team Manitoba
by Judy Wells (Reprinted with permission from Deloraine Times & Star)

Hockey Manitoba recently announced the Under 18 Female Team Manitoba roster for the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax. Included on the roster are two athletes from Deloraine, namely Jennifer More and Kiara De Kezel. Also from the Westman area are Skye Kelly, Brandon; Halli Krzyzaniak, Neepawa and Ashleigh Brykaliuk, Brandon.

The selection process is done through the Hockey Manitoba Program of Excellence (POE) and actually started back in February 2010 with regional selections. Three more steps including the POE Spring tournament, POE summer camp and most recently a final exhibition tournament in Regina.

Team Manitoba welcomes back nine returning players form 2009 and ten new members. The team won't meet again to play until December for a tournament at the University of Manitoba. "We hope to practice a couple times and will play a couple of exhibition games versus university teams," said head coach Tony Franklin. Two years ago, Franklin was the assistant coach of the Under 18 team who competed in Napanee for the national championships and came home with the bronze. He applied to coach this year's Under 18 Canada Games team. Following an interview process, Franklin was offered the position. It's important to note here that the players underwent the evaluation process (mentioned earlier) which involved 10 people from across the province (not the coaching staff). It was that panel that selected the top 24. From there the coaches trimmed the roster to 20 and each athlete is definitely there on their own merit including the Deloraine girls.

As a coach, Franklin thinks it's great to have More and De Kezel on the roster as he knows their background and what they can bring to the team. "More importantly, though, this is a feather in the cap of the coaches that worked with these girls during their development years.” "And it's a great example for our local female youth players of what can be accomplished with hard work and dedication!" he added. Both girls offer valuable contributions to the team. "Kiara has size, strength and solid skating skills. She is very good in the defensive zone but also has an offensive upside and an excellent shot," said Franklin. Having been to a national championship with the Westman Wildcats (and won), she will be able to draw on that experience. "Kiara puts the team ahead of herself and leads by example. . she quietly  goes about her work. She's best described as someone who's 'tough' to play against, so we're very happy she'll be wearing a Manitoba sweater," said Franklin. Jennifer More was with the Under 18  tam last year and attended the national championships in Surrey, BC. "The experience she gained from that experience will be invaluable for Halifax. Jenny brings outstanding skill and hockey sense to our team. She will be looked upon to create chances at the offensive end as well as attacking with speed through the neutral zone.

"Both Jenny and Kiara are fierce competitors and above all else - they are quality people. . .and I firmly believe that you win with good people!" added Franklin. The goal of the team is to finish in the top three. Franklin says many things must go their way for this to happen. It's a short term competition and many things can go wrong when playing six or seven games in seven days. "But, with our team speed and personnel, we feel that we can challenge for a medal," concluded Franklin.
