Sting ringette squads battle tough in Edmonton

The Central Alberta AA Sting ringette teams took to the ice in Edmonton for a tournament on the weekend but were unable to return home with medals.

The U16AA Sting cruised along in round robin play with a 3-1 record, but fell short in 9-3 in the bronze medal game against the Calgary Pace. Kianna Doyle, Hanna Gill and Madison Pluister scored for the Sting in the loss.

In the opening game of the tournament, the Sting took out the St. Albert Mission 5-2, with Hannah Murray scoring twice and Ashlin Caine, Megan Grubb and Hannah Morrison each adding a goal of their own.

In game two, Saxon Anderson, Doyle, Morrison and Rachel Vandervlis scored for the Sting in a 4-2 win over Zone 2. In a tight third matchup of the tournament, the Central Alberta girls came out victorious again, this time 4-3 winners over the Regina Stingers. Doyle had two goals along with Anderson and Kianna Krall adding one of their own.

In their final round robin game, the string dropped a 7-4 contest to the Calgary Impact. Grubb scored twice along with Morrison and Vandervlis each adding a goal.

Gracie Setters and McKenna Smalley split goaltending duties on the weekend for the Sting.

The U19AA squad finished the weekend 1-2 in round robin and ended up in the 5th and 6th place game.

Their only win of the weekend was a 6-5 victory over the St. Albert Mission 6-5. Sydney Cherniak scored twice, Shae-Lyn Baxter, McKenna Causey, Emily LeMasurier and Melissa Misutka each added a goal.

The tournament started with a 8-6 and 4-3 losses to Calgary and Winnipeg respectively. LeMasurier had two goals and Baxter, Cherniak, Causey, and Brenna Parent added one against Calgary. In the loss to Winnipeg, Baxter, Misutka and Parent each scored.

In the 5th vs. 6th place game, a rematch against the Mission, the Sting couldn’t quite pull of the repeat of round robin play, losing the game 6-5. Megan Conrad, LeMasurier, MacKenzie Lindholm, Parent and Makenna Tonery scored in the loss.

Rebecca Forrester and Baylee Schulhauser shared the goalkeeping duties for the U19 Sting at the tournament.
