SuperHeart tournament attracts 42 teams to Surrey Sports and Leisure Centre

Female hockey teams took over the Surrey Sports and Leisure Centre last weekend, as 42 teams in seven categories competed in the Surrey Female Hockey Association’s annual SuperHeart tournament.

The host association swept the championship in the Bantam (13-14) age group, winning both the A and C titles.

Teams from the Oceanside Minor Hockey Association were winners in the Midget A and Pee Wee C divisions. Other winners were Richmond (Pee Wee C1), Abbotsford (Pee Wee C2) and Prince George (Pee Wee A).

The Surrey Falcons defeated the North Shore Avalanche 3-2 in a shootout Sunday in the Bantam A final, after trailing 1-0 after the first period and 2-1 in the third. Danika Pasqua scored twice for Surrey, first on a hard wrist shot late in the second period, then on a deflection with 3:15 remaining in the third off a point shot by Emily Laroue to force overtime.

Alicia Perez, Mya Taylor, Jessie Sanghe and Laroue scored in the shootout for the Falcons, while Rosetta Maggio stopped five of eight shots for the Falcons.

Surrey went 3-1 (won-lost) in round-robin play, the loss a 3-0 decision to North Shore to open the tournament Friday night. Maggio was game MVP for Surrey.

The Falcons rebounded with a 6-1 win over Vernon later that day. Perez, the game MVP, had two goals and an assist. Emma Hall had a goal and two assists. Taylor, Riley Alexander, and Sadie Stoppler also scored. Sophia Christopherson, Priya Dhaliwal, Priya Sidhu and Pasqua had assists, while Beverly Lynch earned the win in net.

Perez recorded three goals and an assist in a 9-1 win over a Kootenay squad later on Saturday. Hall had two goals and two assists. Pasqua added two goals and an assist. Stoppler and Alexander also scored, while Chelsea Humphries, Emily Duchak, Nicola Murray, Sanghe and Dhaliwhal had assists. Maggio earned the win, while Sidhu was game MVP.

Lynch was a standout in net later Saturday as Surrey skated to a 4-1 victory over the South Island Royals. Tessa Younger, Stoppler, Sanghe and Alexander scored. Pasqua, Perez, Taylor and Sidhu had assists. Christopherson was game MVP.
