The first game was against the New England Hockey Club and the play was evenly matched. However, in the first period, New England got on the board first taking the lead 1-0. Following the ice cut, the Huskies came out as a brand new team with more scoring opportunities in their favor. As a result, Iliana Smith (Forward, 2022) scored off a tip tying the game at 1. In the third, Mackenzie Hull  (Forward, 2020) scored to take the lead 2-1. New England knotted the score at two, which is how the game ended.

In the second game, against Ottawa Lady 67s, the game remained scoreless in the first two periods. Because it was the Huskies’ second game of the day, the team had to deal with fatigue. In the third, the Lady 67s netted a goal, which is all they needed to take the win 1-0.

The following morning, the Huskies faced off against the Cambridge Rivulettes and breaking the puck out proved to be a problem. The Rivulettes held most of the game in the Husky zone with many scoring chances against the Huskies. Cambridge, ultimately, won 5-0.

That evening, the Huskies fought back and proved that they could pull out a win in the tournament. Against the Shawnigan Lake School, the Huskies held much of the offensive play in their zone, getting lots of chances on net. Maggie MacNeil (Defense, 2020) put one in off a shot from the point, tallying her first Northwood goal. Just a couple of minutes later, Shawnigan tied the game at 1. In the third, the Huskies put another one in the net as Ella Fesette (Forward, 2021) scored off a breakaway to seal the win 2-1.

In the last game of the weekend, the Huskies faced the Jr. Sharks and tired legs were a big issue for Northwood. The play was evenly-matched. In the first, Hull put the Huskies on the board first. In the second, Hull added another but the Jr. Sharks responded with two of their own to end the second tied 2-2. In the third, the Jr. Sharks added one more, taking the win 3-2.

With this weekend’s games, the Huskies go to 8-18-2 on the season. Next up for the Huskies is a NAPHA league weekend in Troy, NY against Rice Memorial prep and Hoosac School. Follow the Northwood Girls hockey twitter (@nwgirlshockey) for live play-by-play updates year round.
