Humphrey Fleet Service Atom A Aces Start The Season With A Pair OF W's

The Humphrey Fleet Service Atom A Aces opened the regular season with wins over Waterloo and London on the weekend.
 

The Aces hosted the Waterloo Wolves, October 4 and while they came out without the typical jump, they still proved to be more than Waterloo could handle. Scoreless after the first, Jayda Dietz fed Emersyn Miller and she weaved around the defense and went backhand to forehand and then she expertly dragged it around the outstretched goal pad and in. 

Early in the third Miller's shot was stopped but Jule Cameron was there for the tap in. A minute later Ava Harmer ripped it glove side to give the Aces a three goal cushion. With just under two minutes remaining Emma Van Nes fired on net and Abby Van Bakel jumped on the rebound to seal the 4-0 victory. Malaika Kibedi was in net for the shutout. 

On October 6, the London Devilettes were in town.   London jumped out to a 1-0 lead 26 seconds in. Chloe Rison was called upon to make some good saves in the first. With just over two minutes left in the first Van Nes drove down the left side and into the corner before finding Van Bakel driving to the net and she jammed it home to tie it up. A minute later, Maeve Moss' point shot was stopped. Harmer jumped on the rebound and fed Linley Porter who gave the Aces a 2-1 lead after one. 

Rison came up with a big stop on a breakaway early in the second but then the Devilettes were able to tie it up. It was a wakeup call for the Aces who kicked it into a higher gear while shutting down the Devilettes offense. Camryn Medhurst and Dietz combined to set Miller up for the go ahead tally. She was relentless and jammed it home short side.

Up 3-2 after two frames, the Aces came out even more determined in the third. With 10:21 to go Van Bakel's shot was stopped but Jayda Houben was there to snap it into the yawning cage. Thirty seconds into the lone power play opportunity Miller made London pay converting the setup from Dietz and Cameron. 

The Aces had to kill off two penalties late but they never looked back and walked away with a 5-2 win. 

 

After the game the girls decided to share the start of International Women’s hockey week.  The girls met with the Devilette’s in the dressing room and passed on a celebration commemorative winter hat.  Proving that you can battle on the ice, but everyone wins with girl’s hockey.

The Aces are back in action October 13 when they host Saugeen Maitland Lightning at the RBC at 11:30 a.m.
