WA clinch bronze

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Looklocal -

WA'S Pee­wee Ice Hockey team, cap­tained by Carine’s Ri­ley Langille, fin­ished with bronze in the WA Ice Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion's U13 Gins­berg Tour­na­ment at Perth Ice Arena last month.

Its semi-fi­nal against NSW was a grudge match this year be­cause WA beat NSW in the semi fi­nal last year and went on to win gold. This year, NSW won the match 10-0.

WA played Queens­land in the bronze medal game win­ning 3-1.

Team man­ager Dana Chap­man, of Wem­b­ley, said the bronze medal game was ex­tremely tough.

“The team played such a strong game and the sup­port that we had from par­ents, fam­ily and friends was great to see,” she said. “Of the 16 play­ers, 15 were new to this level com­pe­ti­tion.”

The com­pe­ti­tion was won by NSW, with Vic­to­ria com­ing sec­ond.
