May long weekend proved to be golden for the Female Island Elite peewee spring hockey team.

The team includes Peninsula players Veda Smith and Lexxi Smith.

After two months of on ice training, players from the south Island won five of six games, including four shutouts. An all-Island gold medal game against the Female Young Guns saw the Elite come out clearly on top with a 6-1 victory.

Next up for the Elite is Winnipeg’s North American Classic in June.
