Storm crash into 4th place

Bring on the playoffs! The Storm win their 3rd game out of 4 played this week to jump into a 4th place tie with the Ioi Storm team. Now a loss tomorrow would drop us back to 6th but either way this team is ready for the second season after a convincing 4-0 win against the Ioi Storm team. Today we won every battle for the puck and used both speed and size dominate the first two periods.

The first goal game off a rebound after Caitlin fired a high wrist stop that the goalie had problems handling. Maddie L was their to bang in the rebound. During the second period Maddie picked up a pass from Caitlin at the opposition blueline and powered her way towards the net. As she was falling from about 10 feet out with a defenseman draped over her, she fired the puck over the pads of the sprawling goalie. Before the period was up the line of Gabby, Skye and Genevieve were crashing the net and in the ensuing scramble, Skye banged the puck in the net. The final goal was scored by Caitlin with less than a minute remaining in the game on a breakaway off a feed from Maddie A.
