The championship game between the Lady Islanders 12U Tier 1 and Jr Flyers 12U saw competitive hockey with great goaltending on both ends.  The team capitalized on a great passing play by Chloe Obser and Ava Glab to enable Sarah Wagner to bury the puck late in the 1st period.  The team controlled the puck for the remainder of the game and with solid goal tending from Natalie Frey-Perusse kept the Junior Flyers from scoring for the remainder of the game.

Congraulations to the 12U players for another win - back to back championships!  Thank you to Coach Rob Hare and Coach Mark Dubeau for their coaching on the bench for this series of games.
