Silver medals for Delta ringette players
Fraser River Delta (Zone 4) was undefeated until the gold medal game of the ringette tournament at the BC Winter Games in Abbotsford, but had to settle for the silver medal.
The Zone 4 team handily defeated two opponents by a combined 28-5 score in their first two games, then clinched first place in Pool A with a 9-8 decision over the Thompson-Okanagan's (Zone 2) second team.
In Sunday's gold medal game at the Matsqui Recreation Centre, the Fraser River Delta team fell 11-2 to the Zone 2 first team, but that didn't take away from an enjoyable three days.
"It was an awesome learning experience and a good way to make friends from other associations," said goaltender Marisa Shepard, 15, one of seven players from Delta on the team.
Other Delta players winning the silver medal were Stephanie Needham, Sydney Fines, Bailey Mitchell, Kelly Landrigan, Lauren Zayonc and Amanda Mott.
