Vernon Adrenaline Rush earn 11-1 exhibition ringette win over the Kelowna Kibosh U19B team Sunday at Priest Valley Arena.

The Vernon Junior A Adrenaline Rush got help from a handful of call-ups in an 11-1 exhibition ringette win over the Kelowna Kibosh U19B team Sunday at Priest Valley Arena.

Shelby Connors led Vernon with five goals, Alex Drury had three, Ava Haldane fired two and Abby Hoffman recorded a single.

In late-reported action, the Adrenaline Rush rang up 110 penalty minutes over five games in capturing the Ring of Fire Junior A tournament crown in Airdrie, Alta.

Vernon capped an undefeated run by stuffing Calgary Northwest 12-5 in the gold-medal final. Connors and Alyssa Racine each dialed up five goals for Vernon, who got 1+3 from Kendra Ostafie and a single from Wynter Vanderveen.

Emma Carter supplied five helpers and Evangeline Koshure added two.

In the semifinal, Vernon grounded Calgary NW 13-7 on an eight-goal effort by Ostafie. Racine (3+2), Koshure (1+2) and Courtney Bacon completed the attack in front of Garrett Adams, who was stellar all weekend. Carter (4), Sailor Martian (2), Emily Williams, Connors, Drury and Vanderveen added helpers.

Vernon jumpstarted the tourney by outlasting the Medicine Hat Blaze 5-2, with Bacon (2+1), Ostafie, Connors and Williams handling the offence. Drury collected three assists while Racine and Vanderveen each had one.

Ostafie, Connors, Bacon and Koshure contributed singles as Vernon doubled the Airdrie Sting 4-2.

Carter exploded for 3+2, and Racine and Drury each pocketed two goals as Vernon surprised the Spruce Grove Ambush 8-2.

In Belle action Sunday, Vernon fell 5-2 to Kelowna despite a solid team effort.

A deuce by Dayce Knopf had Vernon leading 2-1 after period one, assists going to Spencer Christensen and Anastasia Pelletier. Kelowna buried four unanswered goals to secure the win.

Kristin Ho collected her hat-trick goal with 32 seconds to play as the Vernon Flare salvaged a 3-3 draw with Kelowna in Petite play.

Jasmine Horton and Abby Sveistrup chipped in with assists, while  Brynn Korol, Ashley Wadsworth and Alassa Johnson played an amazing defence. Kaila Summerfelt was awesome in net.
