Playing away from home was not kind to the Kootenay Wildcats.
Kootenay managed only a single point during a three-game Female Midget AAA League tournament at this past weekend at Pitt Meadows.

After falling to Prince George Cougars 6-3 and Fraser Valley Phantom 5-2 the Wildcats managed to secure the points by playing to a 2-2 tie against Vancouver Fusion.

Goals by Kiana Strand of Invermere and Shannon Hall of Midway powered the Cats to the draw. Kootenay led 1-0 after one period before the Fusion struck for two second-period markers.

The Wildcats opened All Star Tournament weekend by dropping a 5-2 decision to the Phantom.

Kootenay stayed with the Phantom through 40 minutes before the home side pulled away with a pair of third-period goals. Aimee DiBella of Nelson and Holly Nikirk of Invermere each scored for Kootenay.

Kootenay then lost 6-3 to Prince George as the Northern squad struck for three second-period goals. Cranbrook’s Daley Oddy, Strand and Nikirk each scored for Kootenay, which trailed 1-0 after one period and 4-2 after 40 minutes.

The winless weekend drops Kootenay into fourth spot in the five-team lead with a 5-9-1 record.

Thompson/Okanagan Rockets lead the league with a 13-1-1 record.
Next action for Kootenay is December 17 when the team plays a tournament weekend in Kelowna.
