Girls Hockey Undefeated in First Weekend

(September 20 – 22, 2019) Last weekend, Girls’ Hockey had their first set of games for the 2019-2020 season, playing one against Ontario Hockey Academy and two against the East Coast Wizards. The girls ended up sweeping the weekend, going 3-0. 

The first game was against Ontario Hockey Academy, the play was evenly matched between the two teams with lots of back-and-forth play. The Huskies had lots of power play opportunities that they took to their advantage as Ella Fesette (Forward, 2022) scored off a pass from Aimee Headland (Forward, 2020) taking the lead 1-0. However, OHA would strike back a couple minutes later tying the game at one. Similarly, the second period was even between the two squads until Fesette netted her second of the game and Headland tallied, pushing the score to 3-1. OHA wasn’t going to stand down, and they scored on the power play to make the score 3-2 after two periods. In the third, play would continue to remain even until Magdalena Erbenova (Defense, 2020) scored her first goal as a Husky to make the final score 4-2. Emilie Venne (Goaltender, 2020) saved 23 of 25 shots on net.

The second game, against the East Coast Wizards, was one of the best games of the weekend, as every girl contributed in a way that led the team to victory. The first period was scoreless between the two teams but the Huskies dominated and had lots of scoring opportunities on net. The second, however, had lots of goals for the Huskies as they began to capitalize on their chances. Marina Alvarez (Defense, 2021) and Hadley Swedlund (Forward, 2020) each netted two, Miranda Bookman (Forward, 2020) scored one and Erbenova scored to make the score 6-0. At the start of the third period, the Huskies came out on fire and ready to keep the energy going. As a result, Iliana Smith (Forward, 2022) scored her first of the game, Bookman added her second goal and Margot Rouquette (Forward, 2020) scored to push the score to 9-0. The Wizards, however, didn’t give up, and they scored to make the final score 9-1 in favor of the Huskies.

Despite having a successful game the previous night, the Huskies came out the following morning flat: they looked tired and took several penalties. But the Huskies would fight these battles off and continue to power through and play the game the Husky way. The first period ended scoreless. In the second, Alvarez scored off a second chance opportunity from Erbenova making the score 1-0. In the third, Rouquette shot and scored as the puck trickled past the goalie to push the final score to 2-0. Rachel Hinkley (Goaltender, 2021) and Courtney Fairchild (Goaltender, 2020) combined for the shutout.

With this weekend’s wins, the Huskies have a record of 3-0 on the season. Next up for the team is a four-game weekend in Burlington, Vermont. Follow the team’s Twitter (@nwgirlshockey) and Instagram (@northwood.girlshockey) for updates year-round.
