Five players from Surrey were part of the Fraser Valley Phantom female team which competed at last week’s Esso Cup national Midget championship tournament in Stoney Creek, Ontario.

The Phantom were among six teams at the week-long competition, and with one win in five games placed fifth and missed the playoff round by two points.

The Weyburn Gold Wings won the tournament with a 2-1 victory over the Edmonton Thunder.

Mackenzie Wong tied for the team scoring lead with a goal and four assists in the five round robin games.

Other skaters from Surrey on the team include forward Katelin Korman and defenders Mandy Pollock and Taygen Rosner.

Morgan Symington of Cloverdale was one of two goaltenders for the Phantom.

The Phantom finished first in the BC Hockey Female Midget AAA league with a 22-1-7 (won-lost-tied) record, then defeated the West Coast Avalanche 2-1 and the Okanagan Rockets 2-0 in a pair of best-of-three playoff series to clinch the provincial championship.

The Phantom won a gold medal at the Mandi Schwartz Memorial Tournament in Saskatchewan in December, defeating Weyburn 2-1 in a round robin contest. Fraser Valley was also the runner-up at the Mac’s Tournament later that month, falling 2-1 in triple overtime to the Westman Wildcats of Manitoba in the final.
