A Wetaskiwin hockey player has made a name for herself on an elite girls team in the Leduc area.

Colbi Brown of the North Central Impact hockey team recently played on the Midget Elite Team North as part of the 2018 Alberta Female Hockey League Prospects weekend.

Denise Broadbent, Leduc Minor Hockey Association, VP Female Hockey, said the all-star weekend featured great hockey and great camaraderie.

“For the 2018 AFHL Prospects weekend, we can ‘call it a draw’…Team North won the Midget game and Team South won the Bantam game,” stated Broadbent in an email. “Bragging rights shared across the province.”

“The scoreboard in the background depicts just how tight the game was. Note the shots on goal, and the final score of 3-2 in favor of Team North midget. Of the three goals scored for Team North, our North Central Impact (NCI) athletes assisted on two of them.”

Midget Elite players that represented NCI on Team North included Brown, Caitlin Schultz (Stony Plain) and Reegan Broadbent (Leduc County).

Broadbent reported three NCI athletes also distinguished themselves in the AFHL Bantam Elite Prospects Game. Jacquelyn Fleming (Beaumont), Sara Kazeil (Edmonton), and Bethany Saniga (Spruce Grove) all competed for the north. Broadbent reported Team South squeezed out a 4-3 win against Team North in the AFHL Bantam Prospects game.
