Edmonton WAM and Calgary Rath bring top-level ringette to Red Deer

Two of the top teams in the National Ringette League hit the ice in Red Deer on the weekend.

The Calgary Rath, with only one loss on the year, took on the Edmonton WAM, which features a number of local connections.

From Lacombe, Gillian Dreger, Jamie Bell, Dailyn Bell and Emily Otto all suited up for Edmonton. Kelsie Caine and Melissa Misutka of Red Deer also played for Edmonton in the game. Red Deer’s Breanna Beck, who plays for the Wrath did not play in the game.

The Rath took the contest 8-6 at the Kinex, but it was the large contingent of young ringette players packing the arena that was the big take away from the game.

Players signed autographs and met with young players post-game.

Members of both the Rath and WAM helped Canada to a silver medal at the World Ringette Championships earlier this month in Burnaby.
