Breakers women’s hockey team welcomes players to join them for fun season

The 2016-2017 season is in full swing for the Comox Valley Breakers women’s hockey team. What do we hope to achieve in the winter months? To have fun, make friends, and win some games!

The Comox Valley Breakers are an all-women’s ice hockey team who practise at Glacier Gardens and play teams from around the Central/Northern Island. We range in age from 18-61 years old, with all skill levels from beginners to retired rep hockey and are gratefully supported by Mike Fisher Realty, Canadian Tire and Quality Foods.

During an evening practice on Wednesday night prior to Saturday’s game in Nanaimo the Breakers worked on perfecting their skills, boosting their cardio, and ended with a fun scrimmage.

Fast forward to Saturday night – the Breakers geared up to play against the Nanaimo Black Ice on Nanaimo’s home ice at the Cliff McNabb rink.

The game was a tough battle that the Breakers lost in the third period when the Black Ice took the lead: final score 6-3.

The three Breakers goals were scored by centre Haley Hill with the first and defence Kourtney Egan with the final two.

The girls held their heads high when they left the rink, knowing the teams would see each other again in a few weeks. The next game the Breakers have is a rematch against the Nanaimo Black Ice but on their own ice, here in the Comox Valley Saturday, Oct. 22 at 7:15 p.m. here at  Glacier Gardens.

If you have considered playing hockey and want to come out and have some fun with a great bunch of gals, email cvbreakersinfo@gmail.com for more information. And yes, we have fans!
