MIDGET B GIRLS EARN GOLD AT STRATFORD ACES FESTIVAL CUP CHALLENGE
Submitted By Kevin Rice on Fri 11 28, 14
On November 21st – 23rd, the Midget Girls B team participated in the Stratford Aces Festival Cup Challenge.   

On Friday the girls faced off against a strong team from Zorra.  A couple slashing penalties in the first period provided the Rams the opportunity to get on the score board. Unable to break through, the period remained scoreless.  The Rams scored half way through the second when Jessalyn Mulder popped one in.  The celebration ended quickly as Zorra retaliated with two quick goals. Pridham would find the white mesh to tie the game at two.  Mount Forest again took the lead only eight seconds into a power play when Jenna Kleinsteuber zipped one in from the point.  Half way through the third an opportunity opened for Zorra when the Rams earned back to back penalties.  The girl’s determination produced a shorthanded goal when Pridham again found the back of the net.  Letting their guard down briefly proved lethal when Zorra narrowed the lead to one, just 6 seconds after killing four minutes in penalties.  The Rams held the score at 4-3 to end the game.  Earning assists were Emily Weber, Gillian VanderMeer and Mulder.Later Friday night the girls were matched against a familiar Milverton Royals team.  Mount Forest dominated the game earning four goals in the first period and two in the second.  Emma Bluhm was denied the shutout in the third when Milverton squeaked one in.  Final score was 6-1 with goals from Kiawna Bonsma (2), Carmen Underwood, Miranda Bruce, Weber and Pridham.  Assists were given to Raegan Elliot, Alex McCabe, Brooke-Lynn Hoffele, Danny Gordan, Jordyn Brown, Mulder, Bonsma, Underwood and Weber.

On Saturday the Rams faced an unknown Lambeth Lancers team.  End to end play saw the game remain scoreless until half way through the second. Some great passing from Pridham and Bonsma aided Underwood in putting the Rams on the scoreboard.  The Lancers put the pressure on in the third.  One minute remaining and the Rams received a tripping penalty.  The Lancers gained control of the puck and quickly pulled their goalie giving them every possible opportunity to tie the game.  The Rams penalty kill ability is strong and the puck is cleared by Hoffele.  A speedy Weber beats Lambeth to the puck and a quick shot locked a 2-0 win.

Sunday morning the Rams met a very determined Milverton team that left the game scoreless until part way into the third.  Outshooting the Royals 10 to 1 in the third period netted Mount Forest a 3-0 semi-final win.  Putting the puck between the pipes were Underwood, VanderMeer and McCabe. Assists were given to Kleinsteuber, Mulder and Hoffele.

After an enjoyable team lunch the girls headed back to the Allman arena for the Championship game against the Zorra Fuzions.  The girls hit the ice knowing they had to play hard if they wanted to take home the banner.  McCabe dangled the defense late in the first earning her a shorthanded goal. Another rough game kept the score box officials busy as the teams racked up 40 minutes in penalties.   The Rams generated their second goal early in the third when Bruce passed to Martin who buried the puck. Despite Zorra’s robust efforts they were unable to put one pass Bluhm who earned her third shutout of the tournament.  Earning MVP’s for the games were Bonsma, Kleinsteuber, Martin and Bluhm.  GREAT JOB LADIES!!!
