The squad also posted wins of 5-2 over the Delta Buzz, 7-2 over Twisted Sisters and 7-2 over Matalia.

Lacey Mortensen was the winning goalie in each game. Emily Murray was the team’s top scorer with eight goals and an assist. Megan Cairncross and Tanna Wesner scored three goals each and Lisa Klatt and Rose Marra each scored twice.
