Submitted By Jan Ballantyne on Monday, April 2, 2012
Dunny’s Source for Sports Peewee A Aces captured the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League Championship this weekend in Mississauga. The Championship series pitted the Western Division Champion Stratford Aces against the Central Division Champion Oakville Hornets, and Eastern Division Champion Whitby Wolves.

Game 1 on Saturday of the round robin series at the Cawthra Arena had Stratford facing Oakville. Stratford jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first on a goal from Erin Kuepfer assisted by Kaitlyn Mathieson. Stratford added to the lead in the second when Alexa Horne scored assisted by Kelsey Dixon. Stratford rounded out the scoring in the when Alexa Horne had her second of the game assisted from Eden Lalonde. Leah Matthews, Anna Mohr, Taylor Powell, Tessa Deighton and Megan Rauser played strong defensively. Rylee Kaufman turned away everything sent her way for the 3-0 shutout win.

Game 2 on Saturday had Stratford taking on the Whitby Wolves. Both teams played very strong games. The strong forechecking play of Carly Wouters, Laura Chapman, Courtney Simpson and Paula Wouters combined with overall strong defensive team play helped Creasyn Jordan’s strong performance for back to back team shutouts.

With Stratford’s round robin record they advanced to the gold medal game on Sunday at noon to play the winner of the Bronze medal game Sunday morning.

Oakville was the eventual winner of the bronze medal game and met Stratford for the second time in the tournament in the Championship game. Both teams played a very fast physical game with no scoring in the first two periods. Kaitlyn Mathieson finally broke the scoreless drought with 8:29 to go in the third on a great move walking out from the corner and beating the Oakville goalie. Oakville would tie the game up with 3:17 to go and force the game into overtime. Stratford continued their strong play in the overtime period taking control of the play and finally scored the overtime winner on a hard charging play with Kelsey Dixon putting in the winner assisted by Jocelyn Ballantyne. Creasyn Jordan had another strong game in net for Stratford for the 2-1 overtime win. Stratford played a complete team game with everyone contributing in each game to the Championship win.

Stratford will next compete April 13th – 16th in the Provincial Championships in Toronto.
