Cards take game one of girls hockey final
by Randy Pascal

The St Charles College Cardinals girls hockey team have drawn first blood.

Facing the Collège Notre-Dame Alouettes with the SDSSAA banner on the line in a best of three affair, the Cards received a goal from Summer Butterfly in round five of the shootout, slipping past the Als 3-2 in game one of the finals.

Josée Scott opened the scoring for CND, netting the only goal of the opening frame, with Karlene Fox pulling St Charles even late in the second. The Alouettes appeared headed to victory when Eve Boissonneault found the back of the net with 7:08 to play, but a late penalty to the Notre-Dame captain provided the opportunity that St Charles needed.

The Cardinals needed just eight seconds to convert on the power-play, sending the contest to overtime, with a five minute session three on three session solving nothing.

Heading to a shootout, the teams traded goals as both Samantha Fabiilli (St Charles) and Ashley McKerral (Notre-Dame) made good on their chances, setting the table for the game-winner by Butterfly.

Overall, Notre-Dame controlled the better part of the play, with Cheyenne Bates making 48 saves between the pipes for the Cardinals, while Danika Roy turned aside 25 shots for the Alouettes.

Game two is set for Tuesday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. at the Carmichael Arena, with both teams moving on to OFSAA, in Orillia, from March 18th to the 20th.
