Lady Huskies keep on rolling

On Nov. 23 the Durham Senior B Lady Huskies were on the road in Seaforth and kept their winning streak in tact with a hard fought 4-1 victory.
This win was impressive as the ladies managed to win with only 10 skaters.
The Lady Huskies came out a little off in the first period and generated only two shots on goal.
However, with Durham on the power play late in the first, Brooklyn Irwin got the puck up to Kristen Nixon on the right wing, who blew around the Seaforth defence and went to the deke to beat the goalie, finishing a backhand shot for a 1-0 lead.
The Lady Huskies picked up the tempo in the second period and Irwin got things rolling at the 12:02 mark when she got behind the Seaforth defence and fired one home on the blocker side to make it 2-0.
Durham went to work quickly to open the third period when Irwin went in on a two on one and slid a pass over to Kaley Tienhaara, who tapped the puck into the open net to stretch the lead to 3-0.
The game was a little physical throughout, but got a little more ramped up in the third period with both teams going to the sin bin a few times.
The Lady Huskies made it 4-0 when Emily Martz took a pass at the point from Elyse Bridgwater and unloaded a laser along the pond that eluded the Seaforth goalie.
Seaforth hit the scoreboard with a meaningless goal with four seconds left to spoil the shutout.
Haileigh Duplantis and Micaela Stutzki split the goaltending duties for the Lady Huskies and both were stellar between the pipes for the win as Seaforth played a solid game and had a number of good scoring chances.
The Lady Huskies home game on Nov. 24 against Monkton was forfeited by Monkton.
So with the win on Saturday in Seaforth and the forfeit, Durham improves their record to 7-0.
The Lady Huskies are on the road again on Sunday, Dec. 1 at 6:30 p.m. in St. Clements against Twin Centre.
