The Vernon Ice Breakers extended their Under 10 girls ringette winning streak to six games by icing host Kelowna 13-6 Sunday.

The Kelowna girls came out flying with three straight goals.

Vernon responded with four unanswered snipes, including three from Makenna Jackson. Kelowna levelled the score with 1:38 left in the first half.

Vernon, however, reeled off six goals before Kelowna got their next one. It was 10-5 with nine minutes remaining.

The Ice Breakers not only played incredible offence but defensively they were tough. And when they did get beat, Kennedy Jackson was amazing in goal making save after save.

The game MVP was Kristen Francks who continually shut down Kelowna’s attacks and had a hat-trick herself.

The U10 Vernon  Strikers fought hard  and brushed back the Westside Wildfires 6-3 in other Sunday action.

Sierra  Fernley was outstanding as she made her debut in goal.

Fernley’s strong positional play allowed the team the confidence to work on some stretch passes to break into the offensive zone.

Brianna Visser was on fire snapping in three goals, while Alecia Hughes and Lauren Cooke each potted one. Sydney Lewis distributed the ring with a fantastic cross ice pass allowing Aimee  Skinner to fire in an amazing goal to finish off the scoring for the Strikers.

The U12 Vernon Flare iced Shuswap 4-0.

Brynn Korol, Chloe Scaber and Miah Cohen held Shuswap back in support of Kaila Summerfelt.

Kristin Ho pulled the hat trick and Abby Sveistrup popped in a single with 37 seconds left in the game.
