Tay­lor Fluid Sys­tems Pee­wee C 3 Lambton At­tack 1

The Aces im­proved to 4-3-1 af­ter their 3-1 win on the road. Strong backcheck­ing by Grace Laverty early in the first pe­riod pro­duced a turnover that sent Josie Walker streak­ing down the ice. Walker scored to give Strat­ford an early lead. The Aces dou­bled their lead when Kylie Fi­field blocked a shot that led to a quick break­out, which re­sulted in Avery Faul­hafer set­ting up Tay­lor Need for the goal.

Strat­ford in­creased its lead while short­handed when Fi­field threw a shot on net that de­flected off an At­tack de­fender and in. Ava Neumeis­ter kept the At­tack off the board with a pad save on the penalty kill.

The teams traded scor­ing chances in the sec­ond pe­riod, and the At­tack fi­nally scored with 7:13 left in the frame. Great hus­tle by De­van Tay­lor, Katie Hel­son and Alanah McIlroy helped shut down break­out chances by the At­tack, pre­serv­ing the two goal ad­van­tage.

Strat­ford sealed the win in the third pe­riod by main­tain­ing pos­ses­sion of the puck while short­handed and pre­vent­ing Lambton from pulling its goalie un­til it was too late.
