11-Year-Old British Girl Posts an Amazing Shutout

11-Year-Old British Girl Posts an Amazing Shutout

Emma Nichols is only 11 years old, but she is well on her way to becoming a YouTube sensation.

A video from the 2015 EIHA Inter Conference Tournament held in Sheffield, England was recently uploaded, and it featured the young British netminder picking up a 3-0 shutout in fantastic fashion:

The roughly two minute clip shows an impressive assortment of saves, making it hard to believe that she is only an 11-year-old.

The tournament took place from May 1st to 5th, and this video was eventually uploaded on May 14th.

Not much else is known about the young phenom, but with brilliant saves like that, it won’t be long before we hear more about her. Team GB may have a future hockey star on their hands!

h/t to Paul Wheeler for posting the video on Twitter.

According to the announcer in the clip, the team needed to win the next game as well. They stuck with their goaltending rotation, and their other goalie got a shutout as well!

      That would be great if it did happen, I’m a Brit who played UK hockey about 25 years ago on a girls team & back then it was almost impossible to even get ice time!! In Canada no with 2 sons playing, youngest as player & oldest in net, so glad they have a passion for a sport i played in my late teens!!

      I know friends in the UK who still play female hockey, it’s good to know it’s still make moving forward, would be great if it could be as big as men’s hockey
