Major midget female Cougars continue winning ways

The Northland Dodge Northern Cougars Female Major Midget squad skated away from Vernon during week with two wins and a loss.

The Northland Dodge Northern Cougars Female Major Midget squad skated away from Vernon during week two of league play with two wins and a loss versus the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers.

Game one saw the Lakers sail to a 2-1 victory over the Cougars.

Northern Cougars manager Scott Forrest said the game was hard fought and the Lakers carried a 2-0 lead heading into the third period.

“The Lakers goaltender was the game maker, stopping 36 of 37 shots,” he said.

In game two on Saturday the Cougars answered back in spades, marching to a 7-3 win over the Lakers.

“[We] came out fast and strong and played solid the entire game,” Forrest said, noting the Cougars outshot the Lakers 41-14 with Lac La Hache’s Emilie Nichols picking up the win between the pipes.

Scoring was evenly spread throughout the Cougars roster with Marissa Nichol coming away with two goals and an assist, while Prince George’s Sage Desjardins tallied a goal and two assists.

Jocelyn Forrest notched two goals and Madison Fjesllstrom and Victoria Johnston each recorded a goal and an assist. Ava Keis had three assists while Williams Lake’s Victoria Byer and Prince George’s Grace Barlow each came away with one assist each.

Game three Sunday saw the Cougars duplicate Saturday’s effort with a 7-3 drubbing of the Lakers.

Shots were 37 to 13 in the Cougars’ favour with Emilie, again, coming away with the win in goal. Keis led all scorers with two goals and one assists, while Byer tallied a goal to assist in the winning effort.

Following the weekend the Cougars now sit with four wins and two losses.

Coming up for the Cougars is a home stint, Oct. 3-5, hosting the Kootenay Wildcats.
