Sooke’s girls’ Thunderbirds score big

Sooke's Atom C girls' team won their league championship as well as their playoffs.

Typically, most hockey teams consist of 15-18 players; Sooke’s Atom C girl’s team is a smaller, but clearly a more powerful force to reckon with. This tiny team consists of 11 players. They played their entire season short handed.  And in spite of that, the girls only lost one game during their season.

These girls have competed as a team and supported each other throughout the year. The end result? This team won their league championship as well as their playoffs.

Congratulations!
