Clearly, being the last-place seed doesn’t affect the Richmond Devils hockey team one little bit.

For the second year in a row, the Devils went into the BC Senior AA Female championships ranked last of six.

And although the team didn’t quite match last year’s silver medal, the Richmond ladies still came home with a bronze from the provincials in Hope last weekend.

The fourth-seeded North Shore Rebels won their second consecutive title, beating the Fraser Valley Jets 2-1 in the final game.

The Devils lost their semi-final game 3-2 to the Jets, before taking care of the Meadow Ridge Moose 2-1.

Laura Horwood scored a goal and assist to lead Richmond, and finished fourth in the tournament scoring race with three goals and five points in four games.
