Breckenridge – When it comes to coed hockey, like most sports or places in Summit County, women are a minority.When Alpha Omega took on Jersey Boys Thursday night in Breckenridge, the number of females was actually higher than normal – Alpha Omega dressed four and Jersey Boys featured two. Being a woman in a male-dominated sport can be challenging, but also fun, according to some of the femaes on hand for Thursday’s contest.”Our team respects and appreciates our women,” said Kim Kramer, who skated for Alpha Omega in a 3-0 loss.In fact, Alpha’s women often call the shots. “I’m the aggressive one,” Kim Kramer said. “(My husband Mark) is quiet.”Even though Alpha maintained good communication throughout the match, it struggled to find the net. Kramer and company were unable to capitalize on power-play chances in the second and third periods. “We should have won,” Alpha’s Christine Sperber said. “But that’s hockey.” Alpha boasted 14 shots on goal to Jersey’s 12. Mark Kramer was asked about the female presence on the ice following Thursday’s loss.”They’re tough out there,” Mark Kramer said. “A shot’s a shot.”Jersey’s Chad Breigenzer started the scoring run in the 10th minute, Craig Sikorsky scored later in the perioed and Josh Kintz scored in the second period. A social atmosphere ensued following Thursday’s game with players exchanging high fives, congratulations and jokes regardless of gender.
