SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. —

The P.E.I. Wave under-16 team enters the second-last day of competition at the 2019 Credit Union Canadian ringette championships right in the thick of things.

The Wave went a very respectable 4-2 (won-lost) in the round robin and then opened the playoff round with a 5-4 come-from-behind win over Alberta Two (Spruce Grove Rage) in Summerside on Thursday night.
That victory, keyed by a 43-save effort by goaltender Kenzy Hawkins, earned the Wave a quarter-final berth against the undefeated Team Alberta (Calgary Impulse) on Friday. That game will be played at Credit Union Place in Summerside at 10:30 a.m.
