The Courtenay Whalers women’s hockey team made the trip to Nanaimo on Dec. 10 to play the intermediate Black Ice team. The Whalers were relentless and dominated for the full 60 minutes en route to a 7-0 victory.

Nancy Shields played strong in net and several players had a multiple-point game. Jan Dafoe (Canadian Western Bank) had a three-point night with a goal and two assists. Kelly Roloff (Brian McLean) put in a hat trick after netting three one-timers from the high slot. Tera Kasubuchi (Ecofish Research Ltd.) helped out with four beautiful assists. Denise Davidson, Sam Emers and Josee Bureau (Flip Flop Shops) put in one each to finish off the scoring.

A team spokesperson said the win was a direct result of great practices, which are starting to give the Whalers more confidence in their shooting and passing skills. The Whalers will meet the Black Ice again in Courtenay on Dec. 18 at 8:30 p.m. at the Sports Centre.
