Sunsets off to 
a strong start

Spook the competition in Boise

The Sun Valley Sunsets women’s hockey team was up to its usual tricks—and those were no treats for other teams during last weekend’s Halloween Hockey Festival in Boise.

The Sunsets (4-0-1) started the season by claiming the tournament title and a monstrously gaudy golden trophy.

"In general Sun Valley pretty well outskated the other teams," head coach Chris Benson said. "For the most part the team played well. It was a positive way to start the season."

In a four-team round-robin format, Sun Valley chalked up two wins and a tie in pool play Saturday. They beat Jackson Hole 6-1 and Boise 7-2, and tied Salt Lake 2-2.

"I think they were a little tired by that third game," Benson said.

The Sunsets rebounded with a 4-1 victory over Boise Sunday morning to meet Jackson Hole in the championship.

The tournament’s leading scorer and game’s Most Valuable Player Wendy Speth scored two goals in a 3-0 Sun Valley triumph.

Speth won the scoring title with seven goals and four assists. Left wing Lucy Chubb (6 goals/4 assists) was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.

Goalie Karen Morrison took home Top Goalie (50 saves) honors. Game MVP’s were Speth (twice), Chubb, Morrison and Larsen Peterson (6 assists).

Also scoring were Sheila Naghsh 3 goals/1 assist; Jini Griffith 1/3; Georgia Hutchinson 2/0; Edith Iler 1/1; Julie Bell 1/1; Sarah Benson 1/0; Christine Gould 0/1.

Lia Johnson and Kris Miller helped round out the baby brigade.


Sun Valley Fury

The Sun Valley Fury played its way to fourth place in the seven-team B bracket at Boise.

The Fury defeated Jackson Hole 2-1 in overtime to win the consolation contest. Most Valuable Player Jen Seiller and Nicole Perkins hooked up on the game-winning goal. Cinda Lewis (Mia Edsall) scored during regulation.

The Fury opened with a 5-3 victory over Salt Lake, and then dropped two decisions to Boise teams; to the Blades 2-1 and to the Bombshells 2-0.

Sun Valley came back to beat the Bombshells 3-1 Sunday on goals by Jeannie Kiel, Lolly Greeninger and Lewis.

Fury scoring—Cinda Lewis 2/1; Jen Copeland 1/2; Lolly Greeninger 2/0; Jen Seiller 2/0; Jeannie Kiel 2/0; Nicole Perkins 1/1; Nancy Parsons-Brown 1/1; Wendy Bevins 0/1; Susanne Connor 0/1; Nicky Ellsbree 0/1; Mia Edsall 0/1.

Rounding out the roster were Jenny Gatehouse and Dotty Hand. Coaches were Vilnis Nikolaisons and Ivars Muzis.
