Jenny Snowdon took the National Ringette League by storm this past weekend. Snowdon, 15, was taken along on the Atlantic Attack’s recent road trip to help fill in some gaps in their roster and what happened following this shocked the entire league. The young ringette phenom in her first ever NRL appearance scored three hat tricks in her first three NRL games and scored two more goals to finish with 11 goals in four games in a league that is mostly dominated by elite ringette players over the age of 19. Snowdon who signed as a Developmental Affiliate Player with the Attack is the younger sister of Attack defense Jessica Snowdon and one of four Snowdon girls who play ringette.
In the Attack’s first game of the weekend vs. the Rive Sud Revolution, the Attack skated away with a 9-7 victory. In addition to Snowdon’s hat trick, Joelle Proulx had four assists. In the second match of Saturday, the Attack and Revolution met up in a shootout with Martine Caissie and Kali MacAdam scoring big goals for the 10-9 win.
In Sunday morning action, the Attack played the Winnipeg Prairie Fire of the Western Conference. The Fire, who are undefeated this season thus far, outscored the Attack by a score of 14-7. To close out the road trip, the Attack and Revolution played for a third time and it was Martine Caissie who led the way for the Attack with an impressive 6 goals to secure a 9-7 victory.
The Atlantic Attack return to action on January 5-6 in Quebec vs. Le Royal de Bourassa.
