"Funsets" cash 
in at Boise

Charge!


Credit cards and hockey sticks were equally dangerous weapons in the hands of the "Funsets" womenís hockey team in Boise last weekend.

Skaters from the Fury and Sunsets hockey clubs combined to form the "Funsets."

The Sun Valley sextet took on the Boise-based Blast and Bombshells on the Idaho Steelheads home ice at the Bank of America Centre.

That is, of course, when they werenít clearing merchandise off of store shelves.

Sun Valley gave up a late goal to the Boise Blast Saturday, narrowly losing 3-2.

Circling in the slot, Georgia Hutchinson scored on a pass from Jini Griffith two minutes into the contest. Boise equalized on the following face-off.

Blueliner Liza Weekes kicked the puck to Jenni Conrad who scored for a 2-1 lead, but Boise scored twice more in the second period and held on to the lead for a 3-2 victory.

Bolstered by a poor night of sleep and plenty of caffeine, the Funsets skated with the frenzied passion of a person at a 50 percent off sale. They busted the Bombshells 4-zip.

Once again, Hutchinson, skating with cowboy Cody Ohlís name on the back of her helmet, struck first, scoring the opening goal of the game unassisted.

Jini Griffith stuffed a rebound off a crackling shot off the glass by defenseman Sarah Benson for a 2-0 advantage.

On the teamís third goal, Nicole Perkins carried the puck into the zone, drew the goalie to her, and slipped a sweet pass to Conrad who went high for a 3-0 lead.

Weekes slapped home the final goal for a 4-0 victory.

Also skating for the Funsets were Jennifer Copeland, Jody Zarkos, Nancy Parsons-Brown, Merri Whitehead and goalie Karen Morrison. The team was coached by Vilnis Nikolaisons, Ivars Muzis and Chris Benson.
