Gridlink Atom Queens Capture Silver at Neebing Classic

THUNDER BAY, ON — The Semi Final matchup for the Gridlink Atom Queens would be a rematch against the Westfort Maroons who the queens had previous lost to in the round robin by a score of 7-1.

Olivia Vinet got the Queens off to a great start, scoring midway through the first period and then scoring a buzzer-beater with just one second remaining in the period! Goalie Allie Attema came up big on a couple of penalty kills in the second period, retaining the 2-goal advantage. The Maroons pushed in the third to get back into the game but Maddy Arthur would get the puck to Grace Dorey who’d score late in the game, easily putting the game out of reach. Attema completed the shutout as the Queens took a 3-0 victory and punched their ticket to the Championship game.

That afternoon, the Queens faced the KC Whalers in the Finals. The Whalers harpooned an early lead scoring in the first and second to take a two-to-zip lead. The Queens responded on a goal from Sophia Campagna, cutting the lead to one before the third. The Atoms, though, couldn't find an equalizer as the KC Whalers managed to pop in one more and take a 3-1 win and the Gold.

The Gridlink Atom Queens though had a great time and a great showing as this was the 5th tournament where they've metalled (gold, 3 silvers and a bronze) this season.

Gridlink Atom Queens Reach Semis at Neebing Classic

THUNDER BAY, ON — The Gridlink Atom Queens met up with the Westfort Maroons on Saturday morning but didn’t get the result they wanted. A couple goals from Olivia Vinet and Sydney Ritson were answered by 7 goals from the Maroons, handing the Queens their first loss of the tournament.

The Atoms, presumably, got some rest and returned in the afternoon to face the Westfort Rangers and would strike first and second, opening a 2-0 goal lead early off the sticks of Vienna Minnella and Grace Dorey. The Rangers, though, answered back on the efforts of a hat trick from Deacon Panacheese. Dorey scored again though and Ava Hrubeniuk would tack-on the eventual winner as the Queens skated to a 4-3 victory.

Their 3-1-0 result gave the Queens a birth in the Quarter Finals against the Neebing Hawks that evening. The girls would dig themselves into an early hole as Neebing got two goals in the first but they clawed their way back in the second as Shayla Stokaluk scored to cut the lead and then Dorey erased the lead shortly after. Nothing was decided in regulation so this playoff game went to overtime! In OT, Sydney Ritson would get the puck to Ava Hrubeniuk who’d score the game winner and send the Gridlink Queens onto the Semi Finals!

The Queens will meet back up with the Westfort Maroons on Sunday morning at 10:30am. A possible Championship game will be held at 3:15pm.

Gridlink Atom Queens Start Neebing Classic Undefeated

THUNDER BAY, ON — The Gridlink Atom Queens got things rolling at the Neebing Classic with a 3-2 win against the Norwest Stars on Friday afternoon. The Queens were able to score in each period as Sophia Campagna opened the scoring and Olivia Vinet buried two more. In their evening game against the Buzzy’s Elks, the Queens allowed the first goal of the game early on but it’d be all Queens afterward as Sienna Ricciardi and Vinet quickly erased the lead and then took the lead in the first. Kayla Grant and Maddy Arthur’s second period goals extended the lead to 4-1. Ava Hrubeniuk would chip in one more in the 5th as the Gridlink Atoms breezed to a 5-1 victory.

Saturday, the girls will meet the Westfort Maroons at 9:00am before taking on the Westfort Rangers at 3:00pm. Sunday’s playoff action will be determined by their first four games. Fans can follow the tournament standings at https://www.neebinghockey.com/page/show/192029-tournaments
