Breakers harpoon Whalters in women’s hockey

Local women's hockey rivals meet for fourth time this season






The Comox Valley Breakers matched up against the Ecofish Courtenay Whalers for the fourth time this season on Dec. 3, with the Breakers emerging victorious in a close women’s hockey tilt.

Neither team could find the back of the net in a hard-fought first period. Early in the second period Breakers’ captain Jess Sekulich (Bobbie Norton – Jockey Person to Person, Expedia CruiseShipCenters) opened the scoring from a drop pass by Teresa Fisher (Mike Fisher of Royal LePage in the Comox Valley). Jamie McCance quickly followed that up, assisted by Melissa Furlotte and Kourtney Egan.

The Whalers answered back, sneaking two goals past the Breakers’ netminder. Furlotte tapped in a backhand shot from Sekulich and Fisher gave the Breakers back the lead before ending the second frame. In the third period the Breakers kept the goals coming.

Teresa Bullock (Van Isle Millwork) tucked away a big rebound off a shot attempt from Sekulich. Fisher netted a goal of her own, assisted by Sadie Horner, ensuring the Breakers’ lead.

After many attempts, Emily Murray was able to get the last point of the game, assisted by Bullock (Van Isle Millwork) and Sekulich rushing end to end, snapping the puck high over the goalie’s glove. Although the Breakers were able to take a lead over the Whalers, both goaltenders played outstanding and made some huge saves.

ICE CHIPS The Breakers thank their sponsors, Boston Pizza, Canadian Tire, Mike Fisher of Royal LePage in the Comox Valley, Quality Foods, and their Secret Sponsor, for all of their generosity and support … they also thank Marnie Ordano and the ladies from Port Hardy for hosting a great tournament;  the Breakers placed second with a record of three wins and two losses … “A huge thanks for your hospitality while our team was stuck for a couple of extra days due to the mudslide that closed the highway on Nov. 27,” a team spokesperson said …
