Storm leave Twisters in knots

Game two for the weekend was in Milton for our first game against the second place Norht Halton Twisters. It was another close up and down game that wasn't decided until late in the 3rd period. While earlier in the season the Storm faded in the third period, now we are scoring key goals late in games. This game was a scoreless tie until with less than 2 minutes remaining Alicia intercepted a pass in the Twister end and drove to the net. She deked the left and try to slide a backhand past the goalie who made a pad save. Caitlin who was trailing on the play fired the rebound past the goalie for the only goal of the game. Both teams successfully killed off 5 on 3 penalties in the second period when it looked like the game might have been broken open. Bianca finished the game with her second shutout on 16 saves.

The win also moves the Storm into 6th place for the first time this season.
