The women’s hockey team of Ponoka knows how to win a tournament, especially at home. The Ponoka Silverados hosted their 11th season opener tournament last weekend with a solid 7-2 win against Paradise Valley in the A finals in what was a fast-paced action-packed game.
The game before Paradise Valley, the Silverados competed against Forestburg and won with almost as many points with 6-2.
The tournament is hosted at the beginning of the season before minor hockey gets in full swing and the Ponoka Culture and Recreation complex had a busy weekend with the different teams competing.
Other winners from the tournament were:
• B final: won by the Devon Hockey Bags against the Hinton Mustangs in a shoot out 4-3.
• C final: won by Forestburg against the Edmonton Boomerangs 8-2.
• D final: won by Big Valley over Whitecourt 6-4 in a close game.
