Storm blow by Chiefs

The Storm have now faced the Mississauga Chiefs twice this season and have now beaten them twice by identical scores of 3-1. The Storm have continued their recent strong play to out hustle Mississauga and coast to the win.

The score remained scoreless in the first period but early in the second Kailee redirected a shot by Allie to give the Storm a 1-0 lead. Later in the period Gabbie tipped in a backhand shot by Alicia to increase the lead by two goals. Early in the third period the Storm gave up a shorthanded goal at the end of a long shift as the Mississauga penalty killers outskated some tired legs. However, the two goal lead was restored at the end of the powerplay with a goal off the face off by Maddie L on a set up by Emma.

The weekend turned out a success with 3 out of 4 points against the top two teams in the division. Slowly the Storm has begun to move up the standing moving into 6th place but only 6 points back of 2nd place Mississauga with 3 games in hand.
