Devyn Hildebrand was stellar in her net debut as she backstopped the Vernon U10 Crushers to a 7-3 win over the Westside Ring Raiders in Sunday ringette play.

Kennedy Jackson and Madison Edgar both had strong two-way games with a pair of goals each. Emily Gilman,  Natasha Vienneau and Lucia Manton each added singles.

In Game 2, Jackson pulled the hat trick as the Crushers outlasted the Ring Raiders 10-6.

Edgar, Gilman and Ally Petty each recorded deuces with Rory Lang getting a single.

In U12 action Saturday, the Vernon Storm lost 4-3 to the Kelowna Renegades in a rugged affair.

Goalie Katrina Winstanley made some great saves for the Storm, while Chloe Scabar drew assists on all three goals by Chayse Krause, Astrid Beatty and Sierra Lochhead.

Jasmine Horton aggressively pushed the ring out to the offence, while Brooklyn Tardiff worked for a couple of  speedy breakaways.

The undefeated Vernon Venom posted two more wins in U12 play.

The Venom stopped the Kelowna Flash 5-3  Saturday behind two goals from Sierra Fernley.

After a Kelowna 1-1 equalizer, Vernon’s Kirsten Francks connected with Mackenna Jackson who scored to make it 2-1 Venom at the half.

In the second half, Aimee Skinner stripped a Kelowna defender of the ring and waltzed in to make it a two-goal lead. Francks and Sadie Christensen then worked a give-and-go to allow Francks to score a diving goal.

Jackson connected with Fernley for her second snipe in the final minutes. Jordan Tung  registered 15 saves for the win.

The Venom got hat tricks from Skinner and Jackson in a 7-4 Sunday win over the Kelowna Renegades.

Jackson set up Quiring for the other Vernon goal. Zion White had two helpers.
