Kootenay Wild lose 3-0 to Fraser Valley Rush

With a short bench of 14 players, the Nelson team did better than the scores suggest.

The Kootenay Wild AAA girls hockey team suffered three home losses against the Fraser Valley Rush over the Thanksgiving weekend.

The Wild lost their first game 3-2 on Friday, which was played in Rossland as the ice at the Nelson Civic Arena was not ready yet. The Nelson team had 14 players on the bench, four fewer than the Rush’s 18-player lineup.

The Rush led the game as Alexis Kahlert scored in the first. The Wild’s Jessica Owen scored unassisted halfway through the first to tie the game. Hunter Joseph scored the second Rush goal.

The Wild’s Kendra Waterstreet scored in the second to make it 2-2, but the tie was broken by the Rush’s Nicole Wong in the third to win the game.

The teams relocated to Nelson for games on Saturday and Sunday where the Rush continued to dominate as the Wild lost both games 3-0.

On Saturday, the Rush didn’t manage to score until the third with goals by Sarah Merx, Nicole Wong, and Nicola Murray.

On Sunday, Wong scored again for the Rush in the second, followed by a Taylor Reanna Rodin. In the third Hunter Joseph scored the third and final goal.

The Wild travel to Campbell River to play the Vancouver Island Seals at the Strathcona Gardens on Oct. 23.
