The Glen­garry High­landers ban­tam hockey nabbed the ti­tle at a Jan. 22-24 tour­na­ment in Longueuil, Que­bec, post­ing a 4-1-record.

The ladies opened with a 3-2 over­time vic­tory against the host Cham­plain squad. In game two, the High­landers bowed to Sher­brooke 2-1 in a shoot-out, set­ting up an elim­i­na­tion con­test with the West Lake Wings the fol­low­ing day. That game saw the girls come out fly­ing, with Glen­garry blank­ing the Wings 3-0.

Next morn­ing, the High­landers met Riche­lieu in a semi­fi­nal bat­tle. It was a nail-biter, where the High­landers sur­vived a 90-se­cond stretch of six-on-three play late, to pre­vail 1-0.

The cham­pi­onship game pit­ted our lo­cal girls against the West Lake Wild. This one was a bit an­ti­cli­mac­tic, as the Glen­garry girls quickly took con­trol, scor­ing twice late in the first pe­riod, en route to a 3-0 vic­tory and the cham­pi­onship ban­ner. Tyla-Me De­coeur posted three con­sec­u­tive shutouts in the tour­ney and was named player of the game for the semi­fi­nal. Other match hon­ourees were Ash­ley MacCrim­mon, Sadie Sandi­lands, Eva Quen­neville, and Myr­iam Boisv­enue.
