The Kinsmen Club Novice Girls team had a great showing at the Stratford Aces Tournament. They started off strong on Friday by beating the host Stratford Aces 4-0. They got their first goal of the tournament from Rylee Nethercott. Goalie Ella Gracey was busy facing lots of shots on net from a tough Aces team, but with help from fabulous defensemen Rory Brockman and Bronwyn Hawkins, she was honoured with player of the game for her efforts. Game two saw the Rock edge out the Lucan Irish 4-1 with Kiara McGregor scoring a couple of goals as the player of the game. She got very impressive assists from hard working Niko Taylor and Kylie Fifield. Saturday was a tougher schedule for the Rock as they faced the two teams that would eventually compete in the finals. The Rock lost 3-0 to Chatham in their first game of the day and lost to the South Huron Sabres 4-1 in game two. The score didn’t tell the story of how hard the girls competed against the Sabres including efforts of player of the game Skylar Fadelle. On Sunday, the Rock faced the Chatham Outlaws in the semi-finals and played their best game of the entire season. Outstanding efforts from every player including Marin Chateauvert, Ella Carter, Keirsyn Wood, Rowan Aitken, Valentine Linares ensured the Kinsmen Novice Rock Girls saved their best team play for when it mattered most.
