Locals shine in regional ringette championships
by Randy Pascal
The local ringette contingent came through with another solid performance recently as the 2013 North East Regional
Ringette Championships were hosted in Timmins.
A pair of Sudbury representatives returned home as gold medal winners, as did the U18 crew from Valley East. In U10
novice play, the Sudbury Storm edged Sault Ste Marie 6-5 in the final as Tessa Favero paced the attack
with a hat-trick for the winners.
Emma Vaillancourt chipped in with a pair of goals, with Tanya Fedorowicz rounding out the offense. The
Sudbury Fury upended Timmins Tisdale Plumbing 8-5 in the U12 Petite championship affair, with Kristy St Amour
scoring three times to lead the way.
Stephanie Menard added a two goal effort, with singles coming courtesy of Kaitlyn Chevrier, Emily Baxter-Brown
and Kristina Levert.
The Valley East U18 Ringers overcame a round robin loss to Thunder Bay, turning the tables in the gold medal affair with a 6-4 win.
Renée Delarosbil recorded the hat-trick in helping the Ringers claim the hardware, with Sabrina Bolduc, Sarah Ciammaichella and Brooke
Hope adding one goal apiece.
A pair of local teams had to settle for silver, with Sudbury dropping the U14 final 8-7 to Timmins Rehab Plus. Kyla Bruni showed the
way for the Sudbury crew with a four goal performance, with Taylor Gilchrist adding a pair and Allison McLean closing out the offense.
A more low scoring encounter in the U16/19 Junior/Belle "C" final as Iroquois Falls squeezed past Valley East G.I. 3-2. Danika Delarosbil
and Kaitlyn Coufal found the back of the net for the Valley East squad.
