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.
Tonight I thought I’d share something a little different. An animated GIF from Violet’s DS practice. When I watch this I can’t help be amazed at how much better she gets every time she steps on to the ice.
Today we have a picture from Violet’s hockey practice. I captured this while they were skating off the ice, as the Zamboni waited to hit the ice.
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.
Tonight we have a picture of Violet as she watches the Gold Medal game of this year’s world Juniors. It was a great game, with an unfortunate ending (Canada lost in a shootout). Violet didn’t want to go to bed till it was over.
Today we have a picture of Violet’s Inspirational Hockey puck and tape that she got from her DS team for Christmas.
While Violet wasn’t 100% she was well enough to play. If I was honest, I don’t know how sick she’d have to be to be willing to miss a game. The game was another close one. The dolphins won 1-0 ending the tournament with a 2-1-1 record.
Today Violet’s DS Team laced up their first skates for the first Tournament of the hockey season. They were so excited to get out on the ice and see how they compared to the other teams. The day was started with a nail biter. It ended in a 1-1 tie, with the Dolphins tieing it up with 0.10 seconds left in the game. The second game was a 6-3 win for our Dolphins.
Today one of Violet’s teammates invited the team to Canlan for their annual boxing day skate. She was so excited to go and hit the ice with her friends. I love this picture of her and her teammates sitting on the boards waiting to jump on the ice and start their shift in the game they were playing.
Tonight we have a picture of Violet in her happy place. In front of the net with her stick on the ice.
