Storm move into 1st place...for 4 hours

The Storm showed up today with their "A" game with great results. Markham-Stouffville could not even keep it close as the Storm won by a score of 5-0. The Storm controlled the play from start to finish firing 30 shots at the Markham-Stouffville net. Meanwhile Asia had an easy time in the Storm end facing only 3 shots to earn the shutout. The arena was frigid and it was obviously that she was frozen as she tended the net alone for much of the game.

In the first period the Storm took the lead early on a goal by Gabby who took a perfect feed from behind the net from Sheri. In the second period Mari and Amanda scored. Mari's goal was her 33rd point of the season which broke the team record she set last season. In the third period Jackie and Kailee scored. Jackie's goal was the first power play the team has scored in quite a while.

The win puts the Storm in first place though only for 4 hours. Later tonight Mississauga plays Markham-Stouffville which should make for a tough day for the Stars. The win is the team's 10th win of the season which ties a team record with 4 games still remaining. It's been quite a season so far.
