Leo Al Contracting Pee Wee Girls LL net first win on New Years Eve.
Submitted By grobertson on Wednesday, January 4, 2012
Led by Brina Hudson’s hat trick Walkertson LL Pee Wee girls eked out their first win of the season.  Strong goaltending by Dana Borgford ensured the win against the Upper Maitland team out of Howick

These two evenly matched teams, with almost identical records, took to the ice in a game that would determine who was ahead in the standings.  The game started out with end to end action as both teams got the measure of each other in their first meeting.  Strong defensive play by Emily Elliot, Samantha Smillie, Lily Huber and Moira Robertson helped keep the game even.

Walkerton finally broke out at the 3:39 mark of the first when Courtney Borgford took the puck to the net with Brina Hudson gathering up the puck and finding the back of the netting.   Upper Maitland was quick to reply with under a minute left in the period to tie the game.

The second period saw lots of offensive action by both teams.  Brook Leask had a stand out period of action and knocked on the door several times, but was held at bay by the Upper Maitland goalie.  A strong performance throughout the game by Katie Schmidt led to several scoring chances, but the back of the goal could not be found.  It took a feed from Samantha Holliday to help break Brina Hudson free to pull Walkerton ahead at the 7:43 mark of the 2nd.

After a hard fought 2 periods the teams retired to the dressing room to rest and plan the final frame.   After picking up the puck from fellow D-woman Lily Huber, Moira Robertson carried the puck out from deep in her own end and made a needle eye pass to Brina Hudson.  Hudson carried the puck in and with her trademark solid shot scored her third of the game.

Upper Maitland made it close with a goal at the 8 minute mark and with impassioned play until the final buzzer.  However, it was the solid defensive play along the boards of Trinity Wand and Jenna Elphick that made the difference and allowed Walkerton to come out with an important win.
