The Sit Pretty Custom Grooming Novice C Aces are Champions!
Submitted By Courtney MacIntosh on Sunday, March 24, 2019
The Sit Pretty Custom Grooming Novice C Aces faced off today against the Lambton Attack in Game 3 of the Novice C- E Division Final. 

In the final game of the series at home, the Aces needed a win or tie to clinch the title. The Aces started the game strong with hustle at both ends of the rink. Clara Longston had two strong passes to the front of the net and a hard shot that nearly resulted in their first goal. Avree Marshall and Emry MacIntosh showed strong physical play and Julia Glitz hustled hard to get back to defend and clear the puck from the Aces zone. Half way through the first, Olivia Willemsen had a great chance to get the Aces on the scoreboard but just couldn't get her stick on the fumbling puck. Milana Verellen had several strong rushes up the ice and nearly scored on two separate occasions but the Lambton team hustled to get shut her down. In the second period, Jillian Rossi made strong defensive plays and successfully prevented a Lambton rush by swiping the puck away from the Lambton skater. Reese Campbell put the Aces on the board with a strong shot to the edge of the net that the goalie just couldn't get to. Lucy McFarlane had two good scoring chances as she dug hard for the puck in front of the net. Lambton tied the game at the end of the period but Verellen answered back with a top shelf shot off a breakaway to put the Aces up by 1. Leighton Whetstone, Ava Langis, Brooke Stairs, Madeleine Nickel and Edie Murray were strong on defence as they hustled to get back, held strong at the blue line and cleared the puck from the Aces zone. The Attack kept pushing and scored mid-way through the third to tie it up again. Mira Broughton secured the win as she was perfectly positioned for her own rebound. 

Every single girl played their heart out in this game and earned themselves the win! The coaches and parents could not be more proud of these girls for their tremendous improvement throughout this season. A huge thank you to the coaching and support staff for their dedication and guidance and a final thank you to Sit Pretty Custom Grooming for their sponsorship support!
