Fury offence torches TORL

Vernon Junior A Fury ground TORL Tween AA squad 10-2 in ringette exhibition play Saturday at Wesbild Centre.

The Team B.C. Century 21 Junior A Fury scored early and often as they schooled the TORL Tween AA squad 10-2 in ringette exhibition play Saturday at Wesbild Centre.

Brenna Beck stuffed a beauty off a feed from Bailey Williamson 14 seconds in to put the Fury on the board, followed with a second quick goal by Hannah Popilchak, from Maddie Powls.

Ava Haldane opened TORL’s account, assisted by Saige Woodliffe. Beck, from Taylor Gray, and Sydney Harder, on a drop pass from Riley Martian, made it 4-2.

Singles by the Fury’s Gray and AJ Jacura, and by TORL defender Saylor Martian, had it 6-2 for the Juniors at half.

TORL netminder Maggie Morning made plenty of nice saves, but couldn’t stop Harder, Beck, with her hat-trick goal, Katelyn Paulin and Kennedy Pope. Billy Cawthorn was fabulous in net.

The Vernon Cornerstone Dental Rush continued the domination of their only Tween A adversary in the Okanagan, grounding the Kelowna Impact 4-2 Saturday at Priest Valley Arena.

The Vernon Newalta Renegades fell 8-5 to West Kelowna in Tween B action Saturday at PV.

The Renegades got a good showing from netminder Aleisha Smith, with offence coming from Miranda Chapple (2+2), Demi Williamson (2G) and Marika Munroe. Makayla Vanderzwan added two assists and Mason Christensen was excellent on defence.

The Vernon Advertising Works Petite Rebels fell 8-7 to the host Kelowna Black Sunday at the Capital News Centre.

Alyssa Carter led the Rebels with three goals, Abygayle Williamson had two and an assist, and Madison Fox and Georgia Lannon each had one.
