The Vernon Newalta Rush handed host Kelowna Fusion a 6-1 Tween A loss Sunday at the Capital News Centre.

The Rush got on the board at the 12-minute mark when Saige Woodliffe popped in a goal, assisted by Kendra Ostafie. Shortly after, Amy Parsons took a dish from Hannah Popilchak to make it 2-0. Shelby Connors then scored twice in just over a minute, with assists from Woodliffe and Ostafie.

Connors, battling out from the corner, put a fabulous pass onto Woodliffe’s stick for her second goal of the game. Tenacious back checking by captain Maddie Powls allowed the Rush to stay on offence for much of the first period.

Early in the second period, Parsons set up Woodliffe for her hat trick goal.

Garrett Adams was stingy in Vernon’s net, supported by his defenders Alex Drury, Maddy Percy, Katelyn Paulin and Saylor Martian.
