Roadrunners face must-win
On Sunday night, in senior women’s NCWHL hockey round-robin playoff action, the Maxville-based Roadrunners scored a much needed 4-1 victory over Smiths Falls, rebounding from a loss on home ice the previous weekend.
Brittany MacLennan paced the attack with a hat trick and an assist, while Briar Sullivan notched the other goal.
The ladies face a must-win situation Thursday night (March 29) in Carleton Place, to earn a place in the league’s championship game.
The Roadrunners are now 2-1 in the playoffs, with the loss coming against the Rhinos which secured them a spot in the final. That game is slated for April 4, in Ottawa.
