Two girls from Nova Scotia hit the ice in an international event over the weekend.

Meika Mombourquette and Corrinne White represented the province at the 2017 IIHF Global Girls’ Game in Toronto on Sunday, February 19. The pair were selected by Hockey Nova Scotia’s Female Council to participate in the game which was hosted by the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association (OWHA) as part of the International Ice Hockey Federation’s Global Girls’ Game.

Mombourquette, a 13-year old forward from L’Ardoise who plays Female Bantam A hockey with the Cape Breton West Islanders, was a member of Team White.

“My weekend was amazing,” said Mombourquette. “I got to meet so many new friends.”

The OWHA invited two players from each Hockey Canada branch to take part. Mombourquette and White were among the dozens of prospective players from Nova Scotia who submitted applications and essays detailing why they would like to represent the branch at the event.

This year’s game began in Dunedin, New Zealand and continued in 36 more rinks around the globe before finally wrapping up at Hockey Canada’s game in Toronto.

Mombourquette scored the lone goal for Team White who ended up losing 3-1 to Team Blue and Corrinne White in the Toronto installment of the Global Game. When the final tallies of all 37 games were added up, Team Blue topped Team White by a score of 135-128.

White, a 13-year old Female Bantam A blueliner from Chester Basin who plays with the Metro West Force, said that playing in the game was an experience of a lifetime.

“Playing with all the other girls was amazing,” White said. “We had never met before, yet [after] just a few days, we had created friendships that [will] last forever. Personally, [I think] this is one of the greatest things about female hockey - it somehow unites people in the best way!”

Hockey Nova Scotia would like to congratulate Corrinne and Meika on representing the province so proudly in Toronto.
