It was a battle to the very end for the Ice in their game against Fort McMurray on Sunday (December 3).
The Fort Saskatchewan U19 ringette team lost their lead late and the Fort McMurray Fusion capitalized eight seconds into overtime to win the LiUNA Diamond Ring Tournament.
"It was definitely a tough one to lose, but it was probably our most complete game of the year," said head coach Greg Phelan.
Fort Sask fell behind 1-0 in the first before scoring three unanswered in the second half. Gillian Watson, Brittany Millard and Andrea Buban all contributed to the scoresheet for the Ice.
Fort Mac cut the lead in half before tying the game at 3-3 with 1:08 left to go in regulation.
In overtime, Logyn Gulevich beat Sienna Panchyshyn with a low, hard shot eight seconds into the extra frame to secure the 4-3 win and gold.
"Hopefully the girls can build off this game, see what it takes to play a complete game and the effort they have to put in for it," added Phelan.
Fort Sask got off to a slow start in the regular season, but Phelan is hoping this tournament can spark a run in the second half.
Also during the tournament, the U14, U10, U12B and U12C girls won gold at home.
