Storm battle hard but come up short in Barrie

The bottom line is that you can't be competitive in a tournament when you give up 13 goals over 3 games. Despite getting some good offense, the Storm walked away with only a tie over the weekend. Certainly there was a terrific work ethic right through the weekend, even when behind by 4 goals in the final game. Gabby was red hot on the weekend, scoring 5 of the Storm's 7 goals including a hat trick in game #2. The Alex-Alexa-Gabby line was very effective at cycling the puck and controlling the play. Other strong performers were Alicia, Skye and Paitra with her first goal while playing left wing. We just need to cut back on our goals against.
