Newbridge hockey instructor Damon MacEachern commented, “Bella has worked very hard this year on her shot and decision making with the puck. The focus for Bella has always involved her play with the puck and her ability to produce results, and she showed that this weekend. Her hard work and determination to get better every day is clearly paying off.”
Bella’s well rounded performance is a testament to her time and development in the Newbridge hockey program.
