TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – GREATER VANCOUVER COMETS

It was equal parts offence – being the only team to crack triple digits in goals – and defence – allowing only 40 goals in 30 games – that allowed the Greater Vancouver Comets to clinch the British Columbia Female Midget AAA League regular season crown. Led by Elexa Pakozdy and her league-high 23 goals and 46 points, the Comets placed five players among the top 10 scorers and had 14 players contribute at least 10 points this season. Four of the top five scoring D-men in the league wore Comet blue-and-green, led by Justine Johnson and her 16 points. The goaltending tandem of McKenna Unger and Brooke Vial turned in nine shutouts, blanking the opposition in more than one-third of the team’s wins. The Comets enter the B.C. playdowns on a 10-game unbeaten streak. After two wins to cap off 2015, the team hasn’t lost since the calendar turned and hasn’t allowed more than two goals in any game during that stretch.
