2015 Female U16 BC Cup Results
Saturday, April 04, 2015
 
The puck dropped on the 2015 Female U16 BC Cup on Thursday, April 2, 2015 with 120 athletes from around the province gathering in Salmon Arm, BC for the event.
 
The first day consisted of practices and team building activities, and the game action started on Friday, April 3, 2015.
 
 
 
Game 1 was between Team 1 (the Wolfpack) and Team 2 (the Eagles). The game was a back-and-forth affair, with plenty of goals on both sides. The Wolfpack’s Mila Verbicky opened the scoring at 12:13 in the first period, sneaking a penalty shot past Cassie Shokar. The Eagles’ Ashlee Barner responded just three (3) minutes later, leading to a 1-1 draw at the first intermission. The second period saw the teams trade goals again, with Tannis McKay scoring for the Wolfpack and Rebecca Clarke scoring for the Eagles. The action picked up in the third period, with Danica Pasqua scoring less than one (1) minute in for the Eagles. The Wolfpack’s Madeline Friesen and Tannis McKay responded to take a 4-3 lead with less than seven (7) minutes left in the game, but the Eagles’ Clarke showed some last-minute heroics and scored with just 45 seconds remaining to get the win for her team.
 
Game 2 was between Team 3 (the Fire) and Team 4 (the Storm). After a scoreless first period, the Fire’s Megan Goetken opened the scoring, with Karina Lannard and Jenna Velji also scoring to bring the lead to 3-0. The Storm’s Stefanie Wallace scored in the third period, but it was not enough to extinguish the Fire, as Goetken scored another to bring the final score to 4-1.
 
Game 3 was another close game, this time between Team 5 (the Yellow Jackets) and Team 6 (the Thunder). The Thunder jumped out to an early lead thanks to goals from Aimee Brucker (2) and Maddie Nicholson. The Yellow Jackets’ Addison Battie scored late in the first period to make it 3-1 at the first intermission. The Yellow Jackets came out buzzing in the second period, with Cayman Oestreich and Elizabeth Lenardon notching goals to tie things up. After a scoreless third period, the game went into overtime, where the Yellow Jackets’ Kate Reilly scored the game-winning goal to give her team a 4-3 win.
 
On Saturday, April 4, 2015, the three (3) scheduled games are Thunder vs. Wolfpack, Storm vs. Yellow Jackets, and Eagles vs. Fire. Follow all the BC Cup action live via Twitter @BCHockey_Female and on the BC Hockey mobile app for both Android and Apple. Statistics will also be available on the events page of the BC Hockey website.
 
The U16 BC Cup is a jamboree format featuring six (6) teams.  The weekend will consist of practices, seminars, and games where players will be evaluated on their performance.
 
BC Hockey’s Female High Performance Program was established to identify and train athletes and team personnel for possible participation at provincial, national and international events.  The U16 program is particularly important, as it is the first stage in the Female High Performance Program where player evaluation and team selection occurs.

Female U16 Cup
I was just wondering why the girls didn't have final games? I noticed the U16 boys get to do playoffs? Thank you, Corina Goetken

Reply to Corina
Hi Corina, The female high performance program has begun implementing a number of changes to the program this year in line with a full strategy being developed for the program. In looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the overall female hockey level in the province, it was determined that BC Hockey programs needed to have a higher focus on skill development than a straight forward competition. With these changes we are aligning our programs with the Performance of Excellence camps that Hockey Canada runs. The change of format will allow athletes to follow the Long Term Athlete Development Model properly, therefore preparing themselves for future high performance camps. Please email highperformance@bchockey.net if you have any further questions.
