In a five-team field at the Boise Harvest Women’s Hockey Tournament, the Sun Valley Fury went 2-2 last weekend.

The wins, both from dramatic shootouts, were supported by the strong goaltending of Joanie Fox.

In game one against the Boise Gold Diggers, the Fury was down two goals with only three minutes remaining when Jenny Gatehouse scored, assisted by Jen Douglas. Inspired, Douglas then took an assist from Jini Griffith and scored the game-tying goal.

In the energized shootout, Fury goalie Fox was a wall, allowing no goals and helping her team cruise to a 4-2 victory. Game-winning goals in the shootout came from Mia Edsall and Nancy Parsons-Brown.

Game two was another shootout win with Fox robbing Jackson of any chance for overtime goals. Tied 2-2 going into the shootout, the regular-time goals came from Douglas and Gatehouse again. Jini Griffith had the game winner in the shootout for a final 3-2 win.

Game three was a last-minute loss to Jackson. Just as it seemed the teams would be headed to a second consecutive shootout, Jackson put in the game winner handing the Fury a tough 3-2 setback.

In the final game of the weekend tournament, the Fury looked to revenge their lone home loss of last spring to the Wasatch (Utah) Wings. But, the Wings skated strong and bested the Fury yet again.

The weekend saw some strong skating and goaltending.

Leading scorers for the Fury were Jen Douglas (5 goals/2 assists), Jenny Gatehouse (2/1), Nancy Parsons-Brown (1/2), Liza Weekes (0/3), Jini Griffith (1/1), Mia Edsall (1/0), Kris Josey (0/1) and Laura Blash (0/1). Other skaters were Jenny Conrad, Suzanne Connor and Lolly Greeninger.
