Kentville's Brette Pettet has goals in consecutive wins for Team Canada at the world under-18 women's hockey championship in the Czech Republic.
Pettet, an 17-year-old forward who attends Shattuck-St. Mary's and is committed to the Wisconsin Badgers, had a goal Sunday in Canada's 4-2 win over Russia. She also scored on Saturday in a 5-1 win over Sweden.
The team is coached by Spryfield's Troy Ryan.
On Sunday, Pettet had the fourth goal, firing in a rebound, as Canada broke open a 2-2 game in the third period. She assisted on the game-winning goal by Amy Potomak.
“Coach Ryan has been telling us how important it is to keep improving shift-by-shift throughout the game," Pettet said in a media release from Hockey Canada. "I think that we’ve done a good job at just focusing on getting better each time we’re on the ice and I thought we did that (today).”
Ryan said the team is still a work in progess.
"The outcome was good but I like that there are still some things to work on and that there are positives that we can build on," he said in the release. "We have to compete harder on a consistent basis if we’re going to be successful long term throughout this event and I felt that we were able to get the win by competing today in the third period.”
Canada gets Monday off before closing the preliminaries against the Americans on Tuesday.
