Hailey Robert pocketed five goals as the Vernon U12B Thunder struck down the Westside Ice Breakers. 15-4 in U12B ringette action Sunday.

Hat tricks were the name of the game for the Thunder as Sabrina Kennedy and Ginger Demitrick also buried three, while rookie Meghan Garner recorded her first goal of the season.

“Some great skating, lots of calls and passing helped keep our girls on top,” said Thunder head coach Mike Prafke.

The Thunder are in the Ice Breaker tournament in Burnaby this weekend.

The Vernon Velocity 12As fell 5-1 to the West Kelowna Wildfire 14Bs 5-1 Saturday.

It was a close game with Vernon unable to capitalize on numerous shots until Westside counted twice with about four minutes left in the first period. Westside added three more goals in the second period before Sydney Lewis replied for the Velocity, assisted by Madison Edgar and Kiera Horton. The Velocity 12A are also in the Burnaby Ice Breaker.
