Chiefs advance to semifinals

It was a busy weekend for the Yellowhead Chiefs, but they survived it to advance to the Manitoba Female Midget Hockey League’s semifinals.

Abby Krzyzaniak scored two minutes into the third period of the fifth and deciding game of the best-of-five quarter-final and that held up as the winner as the Chiefs edged the Central Plains Capitals 2-1 on Sunday in Portage la Prairie.

It was the second win in three days for Yellowhead.

Emma Coulter netted the other goal for the Chiefs, who led 1-0 after two periods. MacGregor’s Sheridan Oswald replied for the Capitals.

The Chiefs will take on the defending champion Pembina Valley Hawks in the semifinals.

Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, Jenna Patterson tipped home the game-winning goal in overtime for the Westman Wildcats as they opened their best-of-five league semifinal with a 3-2 win over the host Winnipeg Avros on Sunday. Lexie Kalynuk and Gina Williams also scored for the Wildcats, who will host Game 2 in Hartney on March 11.

On Saturday in MacGregor, the Chiefs scored three times in the third period, including Jalyn Elmes’ winner with 51 seconds to play, as the Chiefs stayed alive with a 4-3 victory. Tashel Scantlebury, Jessi Rampton and Coulter also scored for Yellowhead. Oswald set up all three goals for Central Plains, including two by Courtlyn Oswald.

Late Friday night at Shoal Lake, Tamara McVannel scored the overtime winner for the Capitals in their 3-2 victory. Sam Geekie and Jordyn Tibbatts scored in regulation for the Chiefs.
