Ultramar Classic recap

The Avalanche struggled to score when they competed in the recent Auburn Eagles Ultramar Classic Senior Girls High School Hockey Tournament.

The team went 0-3.

Head Coach Rob Davies explained to the Valley Journal over two weeks ago, “we will see what we are made of when we play in Halifax at the end of November.” He was referencing at the time the Auburn Eagles Ultramar Classic Sr. Girls High School Hockey Tournament.

Paige Parker scored the lone Avalanche goal in this game.

In their final game of the tournament, penalties hurt the Avalanche as Halifax West scored three power-play goals in their 6-1 victory. Haley Verge tallied the lone Avalanche goal.
