Tonight I thought I’d share this animated gif of Violet taking a shot during tonight’s practice.

Another weekend of hockey is behind us. It was a pretty good weekend, after losing 4-2 on Saturday, they managed to tie the same team 2-2 on Sunday. It was a close game, with Orangeville taking a 2 -1 lead over the Dolphins with just over 2 minutes left in the game. It took pulling the goalie, but with just over a minute left Violet put in the tieing goal. It was a great game. Today’s picture is from late in the game, Violet is carrying the puck in for what should have been a great scoring chance. Unfortunately, she was pulled down by two skaters from the other team before she could get a shot or a pass off.
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.
