The Lumby Stars U11 female team had an unbelievable first ever Monashee Classic U11 Female Tournament. The competition was very high caliber with a tight finish right to the end, including the final round robin match up finishing in a tie. The team to play Lumby in the finals was decided through points for and points against to determine the best goal percent average. In the battle for the gold medal game, the Stars crashed the net and buried the rebound against the Vernon Lakers. Lumby quickly added a second goal seeming to take charge of the 2-0 hockey game. Then Vernon came relentlessly charging back!! The Lumby girls showed true grit throughout the game. There were a series of back and forth battles and shear amazing stops on both ends with defense and goal-tending. The Lumby Stars came out on top and claimed the gold medal with a 3-2 win over the Vernon Lakers!
These girls played their hearts out going 4-0 in the tournament and deserved every bit of their victory! The parents, coaches and fans continued support throughout the tourney was very impressive, showing great sportsmanship for all teams.
A special note, to Lumby Minor Hockey Referee in chief, Doug Geiger, who spent a great deal of time mentoring our young officials throughout the tournament. His dedication to the success of these officials helps make the tournament just a little extra special. Thank you, Doug! LMHA is lucky you have you! Thank you to the staff at the Pat Duke Memorial Arena for all your help and support this weekend.
Lumby’s first ever U11 female team would like to thank all their sponsors and community for their overwhelming support!
