Lancer’s split first two games at OFSAA
By Wyatt Williams
The fourth-seeded UCC Lancers girl’s hockey team is finding the competition tough, and your seed in pool play means little.
The Lancers had a win in their morning game on Tuesday, defeating 15th seed Malvern 3-2, but fell in the afternoon to ninth seed Oakville 6-4.
In their first game against Malvern, the Lancers had a pair of goals from Natalie Bray and a single from Abby Stonehouse.
The Lancers led 2-1 after one, and 3-2 after the second, with no scoring in the third period. Amber Parent was the winning goaltender.
In the second game of pool play, Oakville proved to be a little more than the Lancers could handle.
Bray led the Lancers notching a hat trick, while Lucie Maine scored a single marker.
The teams played to a 3-3 tie after the first period, with Oakville scoring a pair of unanswered goals in the second to start the third up 5-3. Oakville added another in the final frame before the Lancers scored on a powerplay with less than a minute left in the game.
Parent had to take the loss between the pipes.
The Lancers need a win in their final pool play game against Banting Memorial on Wednesday in Lakeshore.
