The Vernon Rush jumpstarted their Tween A ringette tournament season in style, grabbing gold at the Lonnie Krahn tourney last weekend in Calgary.

Aly Carter collected the OT winner as the Rush shaded the Bow View Velocity of Calgary 4-3 in the championship game.

The Rush, coached by Warren Carter and assistants Ron Racine and Wanda Vanderveen, got offence from Courtney Bacon (from Carter), Emma Carter (from Kalen Webster) and Alyssa Racine (from Vanderveen).

Caenen Wisse was solid in net all weekend, Abby Williamson, and Hailey Quiring were terrific up front, and Evan Koshure, Emily Williams and Maddie Fox played outstanding defence.

Emma Carter, Bacon and Racine each pocketed a deuce, and Koshure netted a single, as Vernon grounded the Calgary NW Avenge 7-3 to open the tourney. Racine (2), Williamson (2), Aly Carter, Vanderveen and Bacon earned assists.

The Rush fell 12-5 to Bow View in their second game, offence supplied by Bacon, Emma Carter, Koshure, Racine and Williams. Racine, Aly Carter and Abby Williamson had helpers.

Racine exploded for all four goals as Vernon rebounded with a 4-3 win over Calgary East. Assists went to Webster, Koshure, Quiring and Emma Carter.

The Vernon Junior B Uprising earned an opening weekend split, starting with a 6-2 loss to the host Shuswap U16s Saturday at the Playdays tourney in Salmon Arm.

Darian Newman set up Anastasia Pelletier for Vernon’s first tally, the second scored by Amy Parsons, assisted by Marlee DeBoer.

Parsons collected a pair to give the Uprising a 3-2 win over the Thompson Okanagan Tween AA team.

Rebecca VanEyck, assisted by Deboer, completed Vernon’s offence in front of a solid Maddy Johnson.

Emma Lochhead sniped a deuce as Vernon DCT Chambers doubled the Kelowna Jr. Chiefs 4-2 in Petite play Sunday at Playdays.

Sierra Lochhead and Julie Francis chipped in with a goal apiece, while Chayse Krause, Ashly Shwaluk and Liam Van Wyk helped out with assists.

The DCT crew got non-stop hustle from Amy Demetrick and Mackenzie Gilman, and Georgia Lannon was a workhorse on defence in front of Brooklyn Ashby, who made some excellent saves.
