The Pembina Valley Hawks are Hockey Manitoba Provincial Female Bantam Rural AAA champions.

“It was just a fun group of girls to win with,” Hawks captain Abbey Bourdeaud’hui told portageonline’s Rae Hathaway shortly after the medal presentation Sunday at BDO Centre in Portage la Prairie. “Everyone put in 100% effort and played as a team and not individuals.”

Bourdeaud’hui, Alyssa Matthews-Johnson, Annika Braun and Marissa Fehr did the goal scoring as Pembina Valley defeated the Yellowhead Chiefs 4-1 in the gold medal game.

“It’s pretty surreal,” said Hawks head coach Geoff Sutton. “We had a goal at the start of the provincials that we wanted to go 5 and 0. We started off really well on Friday; we put two back-to-back games on Saturday that were really good too. We knew today (Sunday) was going to be a really long day. We tried to manage our energy throughout – eating snacks in between periods, getting rest and things like that. The girls really came out to play every single game this weekend. All the credits to them. They did fantastic.”

Pembina Valley blanked Yellowhead 4-0; downed the Parkland Rangers 7-2 and beat the Interlake Lightning 9-2 in the round robin.

Matthews-Johnson and Mya Pearce scored as the Hawks edged the Eastman Selects 2-1 in the semifinals.
