Beep, beep: Road­run­ners triumph

The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - Sean Bray

It seemed only fit­ting that the top two se­nior ‘A’ teams in the Na­tional Cap­i­tal Women’s Hockey League would meet in the March 31 cham­pi­onship match, in Ot­tawa, as the Maxville-based Road­run­ners tan­gled with the Ot­tawa Storm.

The Storm won the reg­u­lar-sea­son, top­ping the Road­run­ners by a sin­gle point. The Ot­tawa team also won the four-game play­off round robin, with a per­fect 4-0 record, while the Road­run­ners were 3-1, their lone loss com­ing to the Storm.

How­ever, when it counted, with the NCWHL crown rest­ing on the out­come of a one-game fi­nal, the Road­run­ners put their best skates for­ward, stuff­ing the Storm 3-1.

So­phie Con­tant had the first Road­run­ners tally, unas­sisted. She later scored again, set up by Brit­tany MacLen­nan and Tammy MacSweyn

The team’s third goal came from Jes­sica Le­feb­vre, with help from MacLen­nan and Te­gan Tate. –
