Monday saw the team welcome Rossland again and this time defeated them 3-0.

“Hailey McLean, Courtney Terhune and Jenna Stoushnow all scored,” coach Branwen Hainsworth said, “and Cassie McDonald had a stellar game in net.”

The team also recently chose their team captain, who wears No. 14 in memory of Presley Simpson. In 2007, Simpson was captain of the team and died during the last week of school. The following year, the team decided it would be a great way to honour her.

This year’s captain is Cassie McDonald and the assistants are Megan Stoushnow and Kayla Keraiff.

The team’s next home game is April 27 against J.L. Crowe. Game time is 3:30 p.m.
