The Blades Come Out on Top Against a Tough Opponent, 4-2
By D. Glazer
It was a truly well-played game, from beginning to end, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen our team skate so well together. Even going down 1-0 early in the first didn’t take us out of the game. We came back with three unanswered goals and I don’t think there were many moments where we weren’t in control of the game after that.
The highlights were definitely our 4 goals:
Kelly, off a blast from Sarah. Sarah took a hard shot that bounced right to Kelly’s stick – and she put it away. Next best thing, Sarah, to scoring? An awesome assist!
Kelly and Alyssa on a 2-on-1: Alyssa took the shot, Kelly caught the rebound and slammed it home – but the best part was Nina starting the play by tipping a loose puck in our end out to center to be scooped up for the rush.
Lora, on a feed from Sue. Sue, filling in on D, picked up a loose puck in the slot in front of our net and flipped it up in the air straight out of the zone to Lora, who went in alone. I think we all held our breath but it wasn’t necessary; she had it all the way.
Lora, after sustained pressure in their end, took a shot that took a crazy bounce in front of their net and went up, over and in.
Way to go, Blades!
