A lineup dotted with a large number of girls who are making the jump from houseleague hockey to a Lady Wolves rep team for the first time has provided Bantam B coach Mitch Medina with a boatload of talent anxious to tackle the next challenge presented to them.

Thankfully for Medina and company, they usually rise to the occasion. Moved up to the BB division this past weekend while competing at the ninth annual Winter Classic in West Northumberland (Cobourg), the Sudbury bantams shook off a solitary loss in Game 2, capturing gold in their division with a 2-0 win over the Ottawa Valley Thunder.

The weekend would begin in much the same way it would end, with the Lady Wolves downing the Thunder, posting a 4-1 win in their tournament opener. A balanced attack featured goals from Danika Gagnon, Seneca Manitowabi, Millana Marcon and Alex Carey.

The lone stumble for the locals came first thing Saturday morning as the Bantam B Lady Wolves were blanked 3-0 by the Kingston Ice Cats. The team rebounded nicely just a few hours later, posting a 3-0 win of their own as goaltender Andrea Gagnon whitewashed the Clarington Flames.

Mackenzie Gillis, Chelsea Dokis and Makayla Rochon handled the scoring for Sudbury. The result left the northern girls tied with Ottawa Valley for first place after the round robin, but earning the top seed by virtue of their earlier win over the Thunder.

The Lady Wolves needed to duplicate their effort from Game 1 in order to secure victory in the tournament finale over Ottawa Valley, and they did exactly that, riding a shutout performance from Dana McLeod to a gold-medal performance.

Hollie Demore joined Rochon on the scoresheet as the nine goals scored for Sudbury came courtesy of eight different players, including three from the blue-line brigade.

"Clearly our defensive core not only performed their duties at our end of the ice, but also contributed on the scoreboard," said Medina, more than a little pleased with the overall team effort he received.

The 2013-2014 edition of the Bantam B Lady Wolves is comprised of Alex Carey, Hollie Demore, Chelsea Dokis, Andrea Gagnon, Danika Gagnon, Mackenzie Gillis, Seneca Manitowabi, Millana Marcon, Dana McLeod, Sydney Medina, Aurora Ominika-Enosse, Alex Parent, Makayla Rochon, Kaitlyn Simard, Jessika Turcotte and Cally Vanier.
