- Submitted by

One loss by the Meadow Ridge Moose dropped the defending league champions two places in the standings.

The Moose were upset 2-1 by the Island Surge Saturday night at the Langley Sportsplex in one of six games in the SCWHL in Week Six of the regular season.

Facing off against a team which had lost seven of its first eight games of the season, the Moose led 1-0 after one period on a goal by Emily Duchak.

The Victoria-based Surge erased the deficit with a pair of goals by Jenna Wasylik in the second period. Island goalie Sydney Akai-Platt frustrated the Moose in the final period to preserve the win. Meadow Ridge outshot the Surge 16-3 in the third period, and 36-22 overall.

The Moose fell to 4-2-1 (win-loss-tie) with the loss, and were overtaken by the South Fraser TNT and the North Shore Rebels, two teams which both won twice in Week Six over opposition from Vancouver Island.

North Shore began their week with a 9-1 win over the Surge Thursday night at the Moody Park Arena in New Westminster.

Cassidy Bell, the SCWHL Outstanding Player last season, netted four goals for North Shore with Shannon Morris-Reade adding three goals. Danika Carter and Nicole Howlett scored once each for the Rebels.

Logan Hamilton scored the lone Surge tally.

North Shore then defeated the Cowichan Titans 8-0 Friday afternoon at Ice Sports North Shore. Bell led the defending provincial champions with two goals and an assist. Avery Hutton, Jess Sibley, Marina Pecchia, Ashley Lougheed, Elisa Pharoan and Emily Froese tallied once each for North Shore, while Cassidy Hendricks made 12 saves to earn the shutout.

The two wins lifted the Rebels into third place with a 4-2-2 record, one point ahead of the fourth place Moose.

The TNT began their weekend at Ice Sports North Shore on Friday afternoon, blanking the Surge 4-0.

Katrina Hawkins, Carlyn Shimizu, Tiffany Chiu and Jackie Sollis were the goalscorers for the TNT, with Melinda Choy earning a 16-save shutout.

Saturday night at Planet Ice Coquitlam, the TNT hammered the Titans 16-0, scoring 11 times in the third period. South Fraser is now in second place at 5-1-2.

Taralynn Suzuki had a season-high seven-point game, scoring twice. Also netting two goals each were Chiu, Michelle Mony, Hawkins, Sharon Ross, Claire Wong and Shea Weighill. Shimizu and Natalie May scored once each.

Jenn Price made 17 saves for the shutout.

The final game of the weekend was on Sunday afternoon at Planet Ice – Delta, where the Fraser Valley Jets blanked Cowichan 8-0.

Katrina Ratner was the top scorer for the Jets with three goals and an assist. Jenna Proulx scored twice, with singles coming from Natasha Steblin, Chelsea Wilson and Lindsay DiPietro.

Stacey Wilson picked up her first shutout of the season.

The Jets improved to 3-2-1 on the season, and moved past the 3-3-1 Richmond Devils into fifth place.
