Shootout victory gives Sunsets a sweep

Women’s hockey over Jackson Hole

Goalie Karen Morrison was cool, calm and collected between the pipes, which allowed Lucy Chubb to be the hero Sunday with the shootout game winner for the Sun Valley Sunsets women's ice hockey team.

Action took place in the third of three games between Sun Valley and its arch-rival Jackson Hole (Wyo.) Teton Passers last weekend in Boise during the sixth annual Harvest Classic women's meet.

Thanks to Chubb, Sun Valley won all three games, coming on the heels of 6-2 and 3-2 triumphs on Saturday. Morrison had one of her best weekends, stopping 28, 16 and 29 shots in Sun Valley's wins.

In the shootout, there were three shooters per team and Jackson went first. Morrison made the save, and Chubb scored on the first Sunsets try. That was the only goal Sun Valley needed because Morrison made two more clutch stops.

Rookie Emilia "Whiffer" Peraza earned the weekend jacket for scoring three goals and four points on the weekend, but most importantly for completely whiffing on her shootout attempt Sunday.

Wendy Speth (3 goals/1 assist) scored twice in Saturday's 6-2 victory, and Peraza punched home two goals with Merri Whitehead getting the three-assist playmaker in Saturday's 3-2 barnburner over Jackson.

Speth and Chubb scored the regulation goals Sunday leading up to the shootout.

The other Sunsets scorers: Whitehead (1/4), Peraza (3/1), Chubb (2/1), Ashley Howe (1/0), Kipp Mills (1/1), Christine Davis-Jeffers (1/0), Sarah Benson (0/1) and Casey Mills (0/1).

Also playing were Nicole Perkins, Tizz Miller, Jen Embree, Sheila Naghsh, Michele Hampton and Kris Miller. Coaching were Frank Salvoni, Tuck Hall and David Stone.
