With the hockey season in full swing, the month of October saw our Peewee B Lady Rangers participating in several hockey tournaments throughout the province.
At the annual Ancaster Avalanche Fall Shootout, the team went 3 – 0 in the round robin including a come from behind shootout win in the tournament opener. The Lady Rangers finished first in the pool, received a bye through the quarters and advanced directly to the semifinals. Once again, our Lady Rangers came back late in the game to tie it up and send the game into extra time. After a five minute 4-vs-4 OT period, the game was still unsettled thereby requiring a second shootout of the tournament for the Lady Rangers. Scoring on their first two attempts and not allowing any against, the Lady Rangers won the game and advanced to the championship game.
In the final, our Lady Rangers were a determined bunch. They jumped out to an early lead, never looked back and eventually won the game by a score of 4–1.
