Team entered in tournament this weekend
The McPhail’s Pet Store Bantam girls skated to a hard-fought 1-1 tie with the West Oxford Inferno in a league game on Thursday, Jan. 11 at the PRC.
Strong goaltending at both ends of the ice–by the Rock’s Emma Luyten and the Inferno’s Ella Baker–kept the game scoreless for the first two periods.
Finally, forward Audrey Littlejohn slipped the puck between the Inferno goalie’s legs at 4:29 of the third period. The West Oxford captain tied it on a powerplay just 57 seconds later. Both goals were unassisted.
Brittany Sterkenburg’s Bantam girls also tied the Ilderton Jets 0-0 on Saturday, Jan. 13 in Komoka.
This weekend (Jan. 19-21), the McPhail’s Bantams are entered in the BAD (Belmont, Aylmer, Dorchester) tournament. The team plays four games on Friday and Saturday.
