HC Girls' Hockey Team = OFSAA Silver!
Over the week of March 18-21, the Holy Cross Girls' Hockey team travelled to Sudbury to compete in the AAA/AAA OFSAA hockey championships. The team went all season undefeated, then won the KASSAA championship over Napanee 3-1, followed by caputing EOSSAA with a 5-1 win over TISS. This gave the girls ambition to go for gold in OFSAA.
In game one of their quest for gold the team played McDonald Cartier, winning 5-0. New comer to the team this year, Avery Kent made a Holy Cross mark in scoring the first goal of the tournament.
In game two the girls played Loyola defeating them 7-1. Both Shelby Perry and Erin McAuley earned themselves two goals each that game.
In game three Kailey Peirson scored the only goal for Holy Cross against Saltfleet. Saltfleet tied up the game with 17secs left putting HC second in their pool.
In the quarter-finals, Rachel Falcone captured the game winning goal against Ursaline College, sending the girls to the semi-finals. Megan McGuire and Shelby Perry claim a goal each and Brooke Madigan with an outstanding game giving the team a 2-0 win over Centennial, the team was off to the gold medal game.
In the gold medal game Saltfleet scored an unlucky bounce passed Jensen Murphy and the Crusaders couldn’t gain it back. The team did everything they could to tie the game up but they could not manage to get a lucky bounce.
When asked about her OFSAA experience captain Shelby Perry said, “I’m so proud of how we came together as a team. It wasn’t just 1 or 2 girls who did all the work, every single player contributed which resulted in a silver medal! Definitely an experience I will not forget” This words from the captain show how it was everyone from the goalies out and this team wouldn’t have clenched Holy Cross’s first girls hockey OFSAA medal without each member of this team.
