Defensive progress, but a need to spark the offense
by Randy Pascal
Though progress was evident with the defensive aspect of their game, as the Collège Boréal Vipères women's hockey team competed at the 2018
Humber North Extramural Tournament, the need for a scoring threat or two was once again in play for the local crew.
Up against the eventual gold medal winning team right out of the gate, the Vipères were caught a little off-guard, blanked 7-0 by the Humber Hawks.
Regrouped and ready the next morning, the Boréal women kept things much closer, defeated by a final score of 4-0 by the combination entry of
Durham Lords/UOIT Ridgebacks.
Still one more step in the right direction in their tournament finale as the Vipères dropped the goals against by one, beaten 3-0 by the University of
Toronto – Mississauga Eagles.
The Collège Boréal roster for the tournament included Mackenzie Gauthier, Charlyse Boudreau, Chanelle Tremblay, Sara Poliquin, Morane Frenette,
Catherine Mitchell, Taylor Kajdas, Maryse Pelletier, Tammy Lefebvre, Maxime Demeules, Annick Boudreau, Katelyn Coombs, Ashley Durand, Renée Scott, Chloé
Hogue and coaches Claudette Goulard and Mario Michel.
