Prince Edward Island’s ringette team won its first ever game at nationals Thursday in Regina.

It was 28 years in the making, but the under-19 team didn’t wait long to get its second victory.

They beat British Columbia's Thompson Okanagan Ringette League 11-6 before defeating Manitoba's Eastman Flames 7-6.

Charlottetown's Alysha Corrigan, a defenceman, had 11 points and Stratford's Ashley Hollis, a forward, 10 to lead the way. Both girls picked up hat tricks in both wins.

Ironically it was in 1986 P.E.I. made the trek to Regina for their first ever appearance at the Canadian ringette championships.

    These girls should be so proud. 28 years with no PEI wins at nationals and then back to back wins this year. It shows how hard it is to make a strong team with a small population to draw from, but these girls are putting in the effort to win.
