The Golden Jets women played valiantly at the National Championships and came away with a 4th place finish.
In the semi-finals, the Jets surprised eventual national champion Team Saskatchewan by jumping out to an early 3-1 first quarter lead. But Team Sask came back with four unanswered goals in the second quarter to gain a lead they would never relinquish, eventually prevailing 7-5. Shae Fournier and Nicole Brown each scored twice and Ana Miroslavic added a single.
In the bronze medal game, the Jets faced off against last year’s national champions CAMO (Montreal) and never got untracked though the Jets did score the most goals they had all season against CAMO in losing 13-8. Fournier led the way with a hat trick while single tallies came from
Rhianna Wood, Tanya Robinson, Julie Szpara, Brittany Sinclair and Miroslavic.
Starting goalie Rachael Jaffe had a strong game against Team Sask and a strong first half against CAMO before giving way to fellow keeper Daniela Freeman.
