Beep, beep: Roadrunners triumph
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. –
