Northern Capitals go 1-1-1 on the weekend

The Northern Capitals of the B.C. Hockey Female Midget AAA League will also participate in the Winter Classic. The Capitals will play three games against the Greater Vancouver Comets – on Friday in Vanderhoof (7 p.m.), Saturday at the Fort Forum (2 p.m.) and Sunday at Ernie Sam Memorial Arena (9 a.m.).

The outdoor game will be a first for the Capitals, who are coming off a 1-1-1 weekend in Coquitlam. They battled the Fraser Valley Rush to a 1-1 deadlock on Friday (goal by Keagan Goulet), fell 4-1 to the Comets on Saturday (Samantha Wiley with the goal) and downed the Thompson Okanagan Lakers 3-0 on Sunday. In Sunday’s win, Brette Kerley, Pyper Alexander and Paige Outhouse did the offensive damage for the Capitals and Cadence Petitclerc-Crosby picked up the shutout.

The Caps head into the Winter Classic weekend in third place with a 10-7-2-0- record. The first-place Comets have been nearly flawless at 16-1-0-0.
