A stretch of five victories in five games was capped with a 3-0 shutout of the London Devilettes as the local crew began their season with a bang.
The tone was set early, as Sarah Mulvenna netted a hat trick and Caitlin Olive-Ferguson added a pair of goals in a 7-0 whitewashing of the Leaside Wildcats. Summer Butterfly and Renee Auger also scored in support of the shutout netminding of Charity Walt.
The Lady Wolves extended their win streak to a pair of games courtesy of a 5-2 win over the Etobicoke Dolphins, with Renee Scott enjoying a two-goal effort to lead the way. Goals by Butterfly, Mulvenna and Brittany Reinhardt rounded out the scoring for the winners.
That would be the only game in which the Sudbury crew would allow any goals against.
A stifling defensive effort was in full force for game three as Sudbury upended the Mississauga Chiefs 2-0. Olive-Ferguson accounted for all of the Lady Wolves offence with a pair of tallies, while Walt registered shutout number two.
Now on virtual cruise control, Sudbury sailed to victory in the semifinals, sending the North Halton Hurricanes to the sidelines in a 4-0 decision. Josee Emond, Celina Robichaud, Tiffany Ross and Scott scored for the Lady Wolves while netminder Danika Lefrancois made it three shutouts in four games for the northern girls.
The die was clearly cast for the championship final as Scott netted her fourth and fifth goals of the tournament against London. Butterfly completed the offensive outburst while Walt capped off a flawless weekend with her third straight shutout.
With the Northeast house league regular season play now under way, the Midget A squad is back in tournament action later this month, travelling to the GTA for the Etobicoke Dolphins Pink the Rink III Tournament Oct. 19 to 21.
