The Red Rock Renegades took first place in the First Annual South Cariboo Female Hockey League (SCFHL) playoffs on March 7.

The inaugural year for the South Cariboo Female Hockey

league was a great success.

Kim Mills, president of the newly formed South Cariboo Female Hockey League (SCFHL), says they were able to form three teams this year, including the Solstice Heat, sponsored by Solstice Salon & Boutique; Red Rock Renegades, sponsored by The Red Rock Grill; and Rocky’s Race Trac Rowdies, sponsored by Rocky’s Sandblasting of Williams Lake and Race Trac Gas in Lac la Hache.

 

All of their games were played in the Lac la Hache arena, as this was a very central location for all. Seven women came from Williams Lake and two came from as far as Hanceville to make up the 48-player

league.

The players ranged in age from 16 to 99 years, with all skill levels from beginners to seasoned players. The SCFHL hopes to add a fourth team next year, so women who are interested can call Mills at 250-395-2435.

 

Solstice Heat won regular season league play with seven wins, two losses, and three ties.

The playoff champions were the Red Rock Renegades, playing in back-to-back games March 7, first defeating Rocky’s Race Trac Rowdies 5-2 and then downing the Heat 5-1.
