Shotgun start

It was the first of what would be 45 shots and it went in. Less than two minutes into the game and the Fire White were in the lead at Olds Sportsplex against the Grizzlys. The home team goalie, Misty Rey put in a brave performance, including facing down a strong breakaway shot, but with two more goals in the first period and an insurance goal in the second, the Alberta Female Hockey League game went the way of the Calgary team. Meanwhile, at the other end, Ali Kieren quietly got on with business between the pipes, giving her a shootout from 18 shots.

Hailey Wiltshire scored Fire White’s first, assisted by Jordyn Hutt, shoveling in a backhander over Rey’s stretched-out glove. Hannah Suto got the second from a shot that went low right before the goalie could get across her line. Ella Kitchen made it three when she tipped in a power-play shot from the blue line by Caolan Marks with five minutes to go.

Power-play goal

The teams traded a couple of penalties for free in the second period but the third visit to the box, a tripping offense by the Grizzlys, came with a cost. From a faceoff right of the goal area, Jordyn Hutt took a shot that bounced off the goalie’s pads and Sara Gaiser popped the puck across the line. No further scoring in the third period, giving a  final score: Olds Grizzlies 0-4 Fire White.

Fire White now has two wins from two games in the Alberta Female Hockey League.

Up next: Three games next weekend beginning Oct 20, GHC Bantam Elite Fire White versus Bonnett’s Energy Peace Country Storm at Henry Viney Arena, Calgary.
