HOLY MACKINAW!!!! What a barn burner Sunday night!!
We started off the semi finals with the 4th place Yellow team facing off against the 1st place Green team. Both teams had full benches in the tilt with each player digging deep to thrust their team to victory. The first period was fast paced with Green jumping out ahead first with a goal from Ashley Dubuc. Yellow was quick to answer back with a goal from Lindsay Hummel to tie it and head to the middle frame. The defensive game was strong for both teams, blocking shots and keeping the puck in the corners, with less than a minute in the period Sarah McLeod-Greig managed to sneak one past Cat Trudel. The third period saw more of the same, chances at both end, great defensive play and goalies putting on a show. Green held on for the 2-1 win and secured their spot in the finals next week.
The second game of the night saw the 3rd place Blue team up against the 2nd place Maroon team. Blue team jumped out to an early lead with a goal by Megan McCoy, but Maroon was quick to answer back with a goal from Presley Young. More pressure from the Blue team and before the period was over and McCoy would pot her second of the game. Maroon pressed hard in the second with their efforts paying off when an across the crease pass to Kiersten Maitland found the twine to knot it at 2-2. More chances in the third with both goalies putting on a clinic and sending the game into a sudden death overtime. 5 Minutes of overtime and still no winner, we headed to a 3 person shootout. First round Carrie Long scored and Megan McCoy was denied. Second round Presley Young scored and Logan Buckton scored. Third round River Trapper was denied and Megan Brackenridge was denied. Maroon defeats Blue 4-3 in a shootout.
