Jordan Tung recorded 26 saves as the Vernon Venom stuffed the Kelowna Renegades 6-2 in Under 12 ringette play Sunday.

Makenna Jackson jumpstarted Vernon’s offence at 20 seconds, passing to Kristen Francks who opened the scoring.

A minute later, Hillary Quiring fed Jackson, who buried the ring. Kelowna answered to make it 2-1 at the half.

The second half saw a proliferation of goal scoring prowess, with Taylor Hewitt running a drop pass to Sierra Fernley who snuck one past the Kelowna goalie.

The Renegades replied just before Brianna Visser set up Caryss Hill for a Vernon marker. Aimee Skinner scored unassisted, and Francks connected with Jackson to close out the scoring.

Skinner, Amelia Johnson, Sophia Bilodeau and Zion White were bold on the blue line.

The Vernon Crushers outlasted the Kelowna Ice Angels 11-9 in thrilling U10 play.

Sydney Lewis exploded for an early hat trick before the Angels managed two goals. Verity White and Emily Gilman put the Crushers up 5-2 at the half.

The Angels battled to within one in the final half before two goals each by Madison Edgar and Kennedy Jackson put the Crushers up by two again.

White finished off a beautiful tic-tac-toe passing play to get her second of the game and put Vernon up again. With Kelowna pressing, Edgar was awarded a penalty shot and she went top cheddar for the hatty.

The Vernon U14 A Ignite lost 6-2 to the  Kelowna U16 Bs in other action.

Hannah McMorran, assisted by Alassa Johnson, and Kristin Ho, on passes by Julie Francis and Johnson, supplied the Ignite snipes.

Meanwhile, seven Vernon players have been chosen to play in the B.C. Winter Games, Feb. 25-28, in Penticton.

Abby Williamson, Georgia Lannon and Madison Fox were selected to represent Zone 2 Thompson-Okanagan under head coach Todd MacMillan.

Bryn Taylor-Hawes, Grace Cornell, Hailey Quiring and Kaila Summerfelt will play for Zone 1 Kootenays under head coach Cathy Lipsett.
