British Columbia 8 – Nova Scotia 2
Dartmouth, N.S. – West coast team British Columbia racked up six goals, including half on the power-play, in the first period alone en route to its 8-2 win over the east coast’s Nova Scotia in a regulation round matchup Friday afternoon at the Sportsplex.
The scoring streak started at 1:58 and continued until 19:45 in the period, with Karoline Huber (Kelowna, B.C.) snagging a couple and Kristin Huber (Kelowna, B.C.), Julie McKinnon (Kelowna, B.C.), Taylor Gedig (West Kelowna, B.C.), Jackie Lang (Vancouver, B.C.) all contributing singles over the course of the first.
Those six goals would be a tough deficit to comeback from, but after a scoreless second period Nova Scotia at least gave it a shot, with Sarah Robichaud (Weymouth, N.S.) putting it past the B.C. goal line thirty seconds into the third and Jennifer MacAskill (Antigonish, N.S.) narrowing the gap to 6-2 just less than a minute later to make it 4-2.
But with less than 18 minutes left in the game, there just wasn’t enough time for Nova Scotia to play catch-up, and both Hannah Miller (North Vancouver, B.C.) and Natasha Panahi (Coquitlam, B.C.) garnered goals for the western province before the period was up to cap off the 8-2 coastal rivalry.
