Saugeen opens playoffs with shut out tie
Saugeen travelled to Brantford to start the playoffs. In a hard fought battle both goal tenders stood tall and both earned the shut out!
Saugeen used their speed against Brantford and created many scoring chances. Brantford played a physical aggressive game to control the speed and ended up with 5 penalties. The Lightning could not convert but had many chances including a couple cross bars.
Brantford had a chance late in the game on an open net and twice could not convert. An outstanding game by goalie Erica Parker who earned the shut out.
Congrats to Olivia Linklater, Abbi Atkins and Rebecca Rier who were awarded Alternate Captains by Coach Hussey.
