The South Coast Women’s Hockey League played its all star game Saturday.

The South Coast Women’s Hockey League All Star game Saturday brought together players from around the Lower Mainland and even Vancouver Island to the west and Kamloops to the east.

They gathered Feb. 3 at the Langley Events Centre for the fourth annual tilt, and were hosted by the Trinity Western University Titans.

The league comprised of the Fraser Valley Jets, the South Fraser TNT, the Meadow Ridge Moose, the Richmond Devils, the Island Surge, the North Shore Rebels and the Kamloops Vibe.

Jade Werger (Meadow Ridge Moose) netted a pair of goals for Team Blue, with Kateline Korman (TWU Titans) and Kelsea Trottier (Fraser Valley Jets) adding one each.

Lindsay DiPietro (Jets) led Team Orange with two goals and an assist. Shay Gronnemose (Jets) and C.J. Ashton (TWU Titans) also scored for Team Orange.
