Northern Female Cougars sweep Lakers

Chantelle Beadman-Rolph solid during weekend as the Northland Dodge Northern Female Midget ‘AAA’ Cougars swept the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers.

Williams Lake defenceman Chantelle Beadman-Rolph was solid in all three outings during the weekend as the Northland Dodge Northern Female Midget ‘AAA’ Cougars swept the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers in Prince George.

The three victories put the Cougars five points ahead of the second-place West Coast Avalanche in the B.C. Female Midget ‘AAA’ Hockey League.

In game one the Cougars hammered the Lakers, 7-1, while outshooting their opponents, 41-17. Several Cougars had big nights including Hunter Mosher, who pocketed two goals and an assist and Madison Fjellstrom, who had a goal and three assists. Beadman-Rolph, meanwhile, tallied an assist in the contest.

The following day the Cougars doubled up the Lakers, 4-2. After falling behind 2-1 in the first period, Beadman-Rolph took over in the second, stealing the show to pot two goals, including the game winner. The Cougars outshot the Lakers, 42-14.

Cougars’ netminder Emilie Nichols was sharp in the winning effort and preserving the two-goal lead.

In the third and final game the Lakers stormed out of the gate to pick up the first goal of the contest. The Cougars had a strong second period, picking up all three of its goals in a 3-2 win.

Scorers were Fjellstrom, Marissa Nichols and Ava Keis. Taylor Beck, Kenna Lloyd and Sage Desjardins each had one assist.

“It was a big weekend and our team needed to keep pace of our overall five-point lead over the Avalanche,” said Cougars’ head coach Mario Desjardins. “The team had a good team game Friday night but a combination of a Lakers team who wouldn’t quit and the Cougars struggling to find their team game in the last two matches made for two hard-fought games on Saturday and Sunday to sustain a five-point lead over the Avalanche.”

In 18 regular season games the Cougars have posted 16 wins, two losses and no ties.

The Cougars now have 12 days off before facing off in a three-game series versus the Avalanche that could set the tone for the rest of the regular season. The games go Nov. 21-23 in Coquitlam.
