On a day that marked women’s rights all around the world, there was a contribution on the ice. This was no protest. It wasn’t a campaign. More of a statement confirming the importance of women’s sport. It was the second day of the Northern Rockies Classic girls hockey tournament in Missoula, Montana, featuring teams from Montana, Idaho, Washington and Alberta, Canada. Despite the freezing cold on a Saturday morning, it felt good to be playing on the outdoor arena at the Glacier Ice Rink.  Calgary Girls Hockey Bantam 1 Hawks (in white) skated out winners 5-0 against the young women from Idaho (playing red).
