The Surrey Falcons couldn’t get past the Richmond Ravens at the BC Hockey Bantam Female championship tournament in Castlegar, and settled for second place at the six-team tournament.

The Falcons won four of six games played at the March 15-18 tournament, and advanced to the championship game before they were blanked 6-0 by the Ravens.

Surrey started the round robin with a 3-1 win over the host Castlegar team, getting goals from Danika Pasqua, Alexia Ursua and Rebecca Lim.

On the second day of the tournament, the Falcons won twice. Priya Sidhu notched two goals and Pasqua added one in a 3-1 victory over Kelowna, then Surrey romped past Williams Lake 8-0. Pasqua tallied two more goals, as did Jessica Douglas. Rhiannon Bulycz, Emma Hall, Jennifer Gardiner and Priya Dhaliwal added a goal each.

The Ravens handed Surrey their first loss of the tournament, a 4-3 decision that saw Richmond net the winning goal in the last minute of play. Pasqua scored all three Surrey goals in a loss that knocked the Falcons from first place.

Needing a tie to advance to the championship game, the Falcons got goals from Gardiner and Pasqua for a 2-1 win over the South Island Royals.

Surrey finished the round robin with four wins in five games, placing second.

– The Surrey Falcons won their first two games of the Midget Female tournament in Penticton, but fell short of qualifying for the playoff round.

Surrey began the tournament with a 3-1 win over Williams Lake. Alyssa Dawidziak, Riley Alexander and Emily La Roue scored for the Falcons.

In their second game, they edged the Kamloops Mystix 4-3. Saran Gahan netted the winning goal with two minutes remaining. Sadie Stopplar, Sydney Kreps and Dawidziak also tallied for Surrey.

The Falcons went into their final game needing only a tie to clinch first place in their group, but lost 5-0 to the Vancouver Island Impact and were eliminated from the tournament.
