Humber North Hockey Tournament

Humber North Hockey Tournament

On Friday, November 16, the Women's Hockey teams competed in their second tournament of the season hosted by Humber College at Westwood Arenas in Etobicoke. The Women's team started off with a 9:00 am game against the Laurier Brantford Golden Hawks. They jumped on the ice with their tails wagging, and two points scored by Shauna Hynes (#18) and Mikayla Rae (#19) but had to give the first victory of the day to the Golden Hawks. The morning loss did not stop the Thunderwolves from giving 110%, causing them to reign victorious in their second game against the University of Toronto Scarborough Racoons. Thunderwolf Carmen Underwood (#9) scored 2 points, and one each for Kylee Vachon (#12) and Rae (#19) to leave the final score 4-2 for Lakehead. The afternoon consisted of the quarter finals game versus the George Brown Huskies. The women started the game strong as they scored 5 goals in the first period alone! With the final score of 8-0, fourth year Rae (#19) accounted for four of the goals, while first year Hynes (#18) claiming two, and one each for Underwood (#9) and Aimee Tindale (#11). This victory landed the Thunderwolves a spot in the semi finals against the host school themselves: the Humber Hawks. Lakehead gave it their all but the Thunderwolves were unable to come out on top, giving them a fourth place finish in the tournament. Coach T-Bird is proud of #TheGreat8 for their teamwork and endurance in the second tournament of the season.
