She was named the Player of the game in their 2-1 semi-final victory over Hamiota, scored the shoot-out winner in the Zone 7 Championship game, and averaged 1 goal per game throughout the season and play-offs. Coach Jim Duthie states, “Sydney has been the definition of clutch for our team this year. Throughout the season, she has scored a game winner in the last five seconds, a shoot out winner, and helped our team to victory in the provincial final. Sydney is a great team player who helps her teammates play better and elevates her game when it matters the most. She always has a positive demeanor, works hard at all times and is a great role model for others in the school”.
