U-9 Snipers stop Turbos, 9-5

St. Marys Journal Argus

Surprise, surprise . . . the U-9 St. Marys Norampac Snipers showed up at the PRC on Saturday, Dec. 28 for their ringette practice and discovered Cambridge Turbos were waiting for a game.

As if the shock wasn’t enough, the Snipers were short three players, but fortunately the U-8s were in the building and called up Raella Brodhagen, Olive Aarts and Ella Taylor.

With no time to prepare, and the last of the St. Marys players getting on the ice for the opening drop, coach Peter Westelaken made up the lines and the Snipers were still in that rush mode as Sarah Lynch scored at the 45-second mark to open the scoring.

Jillian Sterkenburg got the call in net and was tested on the ensuing play, but turned back the Cambridge offence. Eventually though the Turbos slipped one past to tie the game at 1-1.

Snipers quickly answered back after Isabella Aarts stole the ring and fired one in giving St. Marys a 2-1 advantage. Cambridge came back strong, tying the game before Jessica Burlingham made a clutch move beating the Turbos’ netminder for the lead once more.

Snipers would add six more in the opening half with the most sentimental goal going to Olive Aarts from a great feed from older sister Isabella.

The home-town Snipers went on to win 9-5. Scoring for St. Marys were Lynch with three, Megan Richardson with two, and Burlingham, Brodhagen and the Aarts sisters with one apiece.

Picking up assists were Richardson and Lynch with two apiece, and Isabella Aarts with one.

After the game, Richardson was asked about her four-point performance and she was very excited about her “two goals” and when asked about her team’s performance Anaya Larmer very excitingly exclaimed “I liked it!”

Upcoming: Next action for the U-9 Snipers is Saturday, Jan. 11 in Arthur.
