Morgan McCann breaks through in win over York
by Randy Pascal

Morgan McCann could not have picked a better time to breakout from a season long scoring slump.

After recording a dozen goals in her second season with the Laurentian Voyageurs in 2016-2017, the native of Parkhill had gone scoreless through her first sixteen games of the 2017-2018 campaign.

The relief was evident as McCann celebrated a power-play tally at the 16:01 mark of the L.U. game on Sunday versus the York Lions, a strike that would stand as all the offense the homeside would need.

Goaltender Shanna Dolighan made it six wins in as many OUA starts to launch her university career, racking up her second shutout with a 25-save performance, while McCann added a third period insurance marker in a 2-0 Laurentian win over York.

The victory allowed the Voyageurs to continue to mount a charge towards securing a playoff berth, though it remains far from gauaranteed, as nine teams vye for eight spots. With a record of 8-1-5-3 (29 pts), the locals sit tied with the University of Toronto Blues (9-0-7-2), the Waterloo Warriors just one point back but holding a game in hand on L.U. and two over the U of T.

Within relatively easy striking distance ahead of this pack are the Ryerson Rams (6th place - 30 pts - 18 GP), Brock Badgers (5th place - 32 pts - 19 GP) and Nipissing Lakers (4th place - 33 pts - 17 GP).

Laurentian finishes the season with a fairly challenging seven game stretch, the first three of which are on the road. The Voyageurs will travel to North Bay on Saturday, battling the Nipissing Lakers, OUA finalists one year ago.

The following weekend sees coach Stacy Colarossi and company in the GTA, taking on Toronto and Ryerson. The quartet of home encounters to close out regular season play include the second place and two-time defending champion Guelph Gryphons (10-3-4-0), Brock, Waterloo and Laurier.
