Sunsets, Fury in Boise

Express Staff Writer

Hungry for ice hockey, the Sun Valley Sunsets and Fury women’s teams whetted their appetites at the Boise Halloween Hockey Tournament at Ice World in Boise, Oct. 25-27.

In a field of 10 teams, the Sunsets skated to second place. Fury finished fourth.

Sunsets assistant coach Wendy Speth said, "We played solid, fundamental hockey with a lot of good teamwork."

The Sunsets lone blemish on the weekend was a 4-2 loss to the Boise Blades in the championship game. The Sunsets out-shot Boise 12-9 and rang the post several times.

"We couldn’t buy a goal. It was frustrating," Speth said.

In the first period, Edith Iler scored off a pass from Christl Holzl and Sarah Benson to put the Sunsets on the scoreboard. Boise scored twice in the second and once in the third for a 3-1 advantage.

Larsen Peterson converted (Holzl/Sheila Naghsh) to cut the lead to two goals, but time ran out on the Sunsets’ bid.

Earlier Sunday morning, the Sunsets blanked the Fury 6-0.

Despite landing in the loss column, Fury forward Dotty Sarchett was upbeat. "We surprised ourselves. We hung with them," Sarchett said.

The Sunsets (4-1) and goalie Karen Morrison shut out every team they played and outshot opponents 125-35. Sun Valley tied Boise Blades 0-0 and blanked Salt Lake 7-0, Jackson Hole 5-0 and Fury 6-0.

Christl Holzl led the Sunsets with 4 goals and 4 assists.

Also—Liza Weekes 3/4, Sheila Naghsh 1/4, Nicole Perkins 4/0, Jini Griffith 2/2, Sarah Benson 0/4, Larsen Peterson 1/2, Edith Iler 1/2, Jennifer Embree 1/2, Tizz Miller 2/0, Michele Hampton 1/1 and Kris Miller 0/1.

Speth named defenseman Sarah Benson the MVP.

The Fury went 2-2 with opening round wins over the Boise Bombshells 3-0 and Jackson Hole Venom 1-0.

Sarchett scored a hat trick against Boise with assists from Jeannie Kiel, Nicky Ellsbree and Lolly Greeninger. Greeninger netted the game-winner against Jackson from Kiel and Sarchett. Provo bested the Fury 5-0. The team was ably coached by Dave Brown.
