Included on the 14-member Vixens’ roster are Kiersten Wagner of Digby and Kimberley Leblanc of Clare.
The team applied pressure on Bedford from the start of the game and never let up until the final buzzer, said Vixens coach Marty Fancey. “It was an amazing hockey season for the Western Valley Bantam Vixens,” said Fancey. “It was evident that from the start that the girls were going to have a great season on and off of the ice.”
The Vixens also earned a trip to Provincials in early March where three team members earned individual awards and the team earned the ‘fair play’ banner.
The Vixens also won a Scotiabank draw that entitles them to a banquet for up to 150 guests. A current NHL player attends the banquet, as well as motivational speakers.
