Ketchum's Five Star Kitchen Design women made it three in a row Sunday by winning the three-day McCall Ospreys Chix with Stix hockey tournament at Manchester Ice Centre, McCall.

The Five Star gals won their third consecutive Chix tourney with a 4-0 record and 21-10 scoring advantage. Leading the way with Sara Schroeder (9 goals), Annie O'Sullivan (6 goals) and Dotty Hand-Sarchett (5 goals).

Ketchum won their games 6-2 over Palouse Pond Hockey All-Stars, 6-5 over Boise Wildfire, 3-1 over Provo (Utah) Blades and 6-2 in the championship over Boise Wildfire.

Game Most Valuable Players were Schroeder, Hand-Sarchett and O'Sullivan. Coach Nicole Perkins elected to award the entire team the MVP award for the 6-2 title game triumph.

Against Palouse, the Five Star skaters erased an early 1-0 deficit with four unanswered goals. Schroeder and O'Sullivan each scored twice. Facing only seven shots was ex-Five Star goalie Joanie Whitcomb, now living in Hawaii.


Five Star trailed Boise Wildfire 4-1 in the second period of its second game but rallied for the 6-5 win behind Schroeder's three-goal hat trick and two more goals by Hand-Sarchett. Former Wood River skater Ashley Hesteness played an outstanding game for Boise.
