The Buy-Low Vixens went 3-1 at the Wenatchee Invitational Women’s Hockey Tournament at the Toyota Town Centre.

The Vixens featured two mother-daughter combinations in Derri-Ann Cooper/Brooke Berube and Christine/Cassie Bosworth. Mandy Christensen and her mom, Bernie Dwan (unable to make the trip) are the third such combo.

Brooke Berube scored the winner, assisted by her mom, as the Vixens blanked the Portland Cougars 2-0.

Cooper added insurance, assisted by Brooke and game MVP Christine Bosworth in front of Kristi Patton, who played net all four games.

Cooper, Morgan Zoethout and Cora Lee Hamilton supplied snipes as Buy-Low grounded the Portland Free Rangers 3-1.

UBC Thunderbird grad Kirsten Mihalcheon earned two assists and MVP was Patton.

In Game 3, Mihalcheon took MVP with two goals as Buy-Low stopped Seattle 5-3. Cooper, Leah Clarke and Vickie Taylor provided singles, while Berube pocketed three helpers.

The Vixens lost 2-1 in a shootout in their final game against the Portland Free Rangers.
