“We’re expecting that we’re going to have to work hard. We’ve played the Jane Deers before and have had some close games with them. We’ll have to try really hard to try to come on top but it will be a hard battle to get there, and we’re taking a full roster.”

Hildebrand also says her team has been able to gain lots of practice over the past couple of weeks.

“Before the North Stars (in Prince George), we weren’t on a full track. Now we’ve been practicing on a full track which makes a difference.”
