They made it all the way to the SCC South Division Semifinal on Wednesday night when they went up against Hamden.
The First Period was all Blades, the way we like it, with Cally Dixon scoring off an assist from Megan Spring.
Then Shannon Reilly made an unassisted goal, putting our girls in a nice 2-0 lead for two full periods.
Then came the third period when Hamden sought its revenge in the form of Demeri Carangelo.
Carangelo made a goal off an assist from Taylor Klesyk, then the tied the game, assisted by Maggie Gould and Megan McKiernab.
With that, the game went into overtime, but no one scored, forcing a second overtime.
Sadly for our solid, hard-working girls, Hamden’s Maggie Gould made an unassisted goal, securing the win for the Green Dragons and their advancement in the SCC Tournament.
Wait! It’s not over yet! The State Tournaments start next week and the Blades will play against Hand on Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 4 p.m. at the Rinks in Shelton.
NOTE: We are so proud of you girls for your excellent work this year. Your passion, sportsmanship, and teamwork are top notch. You’ve beaten Hand twice this month 3-2 and 5-3 You CAN do it again!
Congratulations to Coach John Peschell on a great season. GO BLADES!
