Peewee A Aces Advance to Semi-Finals of Lower Lakes Play-offs
Submitted By Jan Ballantyne on Friday, February 17, 2012
Dunny’s Source for Sports Peewee A Aces finished off the London Devilettes on Thursday night with a convincing 4-0 win at the Stratford Rotary complex to take the best 2 out of 3 series. Game 1 took place in Stratford at the Rotary complex and saw 8th place London take the play to 1st place Stratford quickly scoring two goals in the first period. Stratford got to within one on a great shot by Alexa Horne over the shoulder of the London goalie.

The game remained 2-1 until late in the third when Stratford tied the game on a shorthanded goal from Kelsey Dixon assisted by Tessa Deighton. Rylee Kaufman played strong in relief giving her team the chance to comeback for the tie.

Game 2 of the Series was played in London on Tuesday night at Argyle Arena. Kelsey Dixon lead the way scoring two of her four goals in the first period with assists going to Carly Wouters, Leah Matthews and Paula Wouters.  Dixon completed the natural hat-trick in the second with the helper going to Tessa Deighton. Courtney Simpson made it 4-0 Stratford at the end of the second with assists going to Kaitlyn Mathieson and Megan Rauser.

London replied in the third period with two goals to draw within 2 but Stratford quickly answered back on Dixon’s 4th of the game to finish the game with a 5-2 final and take a 3-1 points lead in the series. The play of the defensive corps of Eden Lalonde, Megan Rauser, Anna Mohr, Taylor Powell, Leah Matthews and Tessa Deighton was much stronger helping Creasyn Jordan to the win.


Game three back in front of a home town crowd on Thursday saw Erin Kuepfer lead off the scoring in the first period on a feed from Courtney Simpson. It would stay that way until the 3rd period when Jocelyn Ballantyne would add a much needed insurance marker after an aggressive fore-check by her and line mates Carly Wouters and Laura Chapman. Alexa Horne added to the lead with the assist going to Kelsey Dixon and Erin Kuepfer rounded out the scoring with her second of the game for the 4-0 final. Creasyn Jordan got the shutout making key saves and controlling the rebounds.

Stratford now awaits the winner of the Sarnia, Lucan series for the semi-final matchup.
