North Star Wolves Girls Hockey Wraps Up Season

Junior girls hockey team

The Wolves put a bow on the season recently by travelling down the 401 to London to play in the Junior Titan Tournament. 


This one-day tournament featured mostly AAA schools so we knew going in our competition would be tough.  We welcomed our new players Emily McGuire, Tyler Casey, Riley Martin, Mallory Gascoyne, Jaidyn Fox, & Mady Goodrich to the team.  The team also had a couple of new rookie coaches, our graduating Grade 12s Hanna Coulson and Maddy Drouillard. 


We started the day playing a strong Villanova team.  (Yes, that’s right we travelled all the way to London to play them).  The first part of the game we held our own but seemed to lose our focus and Villanova capitalized by dominating the rest of the game. The final score was 5-0. Grace DeThomasis played a strong game in goal, but we couldn’t get any offence generated. 


Our second game was against St Mary’s from Hamilton.  We had a much better start in this game leading in the first period at one point 2-1.  Scoring our goals were Emily McGuire and June Buchner.  Unfortunately, we could not carry that momentum through to the rest of the game.  St. Mary’s rattled off seven or eight goals to put the game away.  Mallory Gascoyne started her very first high school game and made several great saves.  It was a tough game to play in, but she did not quit on herself or her team and that’s all that is important in a game like this.


Our last game was against a very strong London Aquinas team.  We played a much better game but just couldn’t match the talent level of the London team. We lost 6-0 but played hard right to the very end.  Mallory and Grace shared the netminding in this game. 


Despite the results of this tournament the future of this team is very bright.  We are looking forward to next season to see how they progress. 


We would like to thank our amazing teacher sponsors for attending the tournament and for all their hard work throughout the year.  We are very lucky to have them.  Also, thanks to the parents and grandparents who took the time to come out and cheer on the team.


Have a great summer, until then see you around the rink.
