The rivals split a home-and-home on the weekend, with the Storm thumping the Flames 9-2 Saturday before Shuswap bounced back with a 5-4 win in the rematch Sunday.

The Storm won the first game with exceptional passing and textbook give-and-go plays.

Shaila Austin started off the scoring spree and assisted Sam Shaw in her first goal of the season.

Rhys Taylor-Hawes and Sierra Lochhead each scored twice, thanks to Miah Cohen who assisted for both.

Chayse Krause continued her scoring streak assisted by Brooklyn Tardiff. Amelia Johnson scoring her first goal of the season off a quick rebound. Brianna Visser scored the final goal and added one helper.

Veterans Astrid Beaty and Chloe Scabar were an excellent defensive line for the Storm, who watched the Flames score the winning goal Sunday with 30 seconds left.

Vernon goaltenderKatrina Winstanley was outstanding making 22 saves.

The Storm maintained the lead in the first period with goals contributed by Kristen Franks, Johnson and Visser.
