They had to go through the back door to do it, but the Caliber Sports Vernon Vixens didn’t mind.
The Vixens won the Armstrong Safe Hockey Women’s League championship playing seven games in three days for the title.
Caliber Sport began the weekend defeating the Brand Alliance Brewers 5-0, but then fell 5-0 to the Lumby Mayhem, knocking the Vixens to the B side.
The Vixens beat the Ice Angels 2-0 then, in their third game on Saturday, defeated the Salmon Arm Wildfires.
Three more games were in store for the champs Sunday, starting with a 2-0 win over the Thirsty Beavers, advancing the Vixens to the final against Lumby, where they’d have to beat the Mayhem twice.
The first game was decided in overtime, with the Vixens coming out on top 2-1, then Vernon scored the only goal in the championship final for a 1-0 decision.
