Today Violet played her last ball hockey game of the EMBHL season. Sure she might play on a team at provincials, but this is the end of the red team season. They had a chance of winning it all but came up just short. Losing 4-3. today’s picture of the day is Violet and Lucas discussing what play they were going to try their next shift. Between them, they scored all the Red team’s goals, Lucas with 2 and Violet with one. They came close to tying it up in the final minutes but just couldn’t do it. Still, it was a good season for Violet, who missed a few games with her broken arm.

Today we headed to the CWHL Game to watch the Toronto Furies take on the Brampton Thunder. Violet’s favourite player, Natalie Spooner plays (Number 24) for the Furies and scored a hattrick. It wasn’t enough for the furries to defeat the Thunder, which was ok for Violet and her teammates because three of the Brampton players coach the girl’s hockey teams, and they came to play. It was a great game, ending 4-3 with Brampton scoring the winner in the final minute of the game.
After a two week break from house league hockey Violets team hit the ice for their first game of 2017. It was a hard fought game with the Silver Stars falling 4-2. What impressed me was how hard Violet played. Going in to the corners for the puck and not giving up when she went for the net. She was rewarded for her effort with a beautiful goal on a rebound.
