Absences due to Christmas holidays were not about to detract from the fun of a first-place showdown for those on hand Sunday morning in Chelmsford.

Jumping out to a 2-0 first period lead, Urban Windows and Doors held on for a 3-2 win over Perfect Source Ice Sharks, extending their divisional lead to eight points in the Sudbury District Girls Hockey Association.

Goals by Kate Dambremont and Angela Mozzon provided Urban with a lift early on, with goaltender Natania King holding the Sharks at bay at the other end of the rink.

Perfect Source broke the ice in the second when Emma Lapointe banged home a rebound following a lengthy scramble in front of King, reducing the lead to just a single goal.

Urban Windows got that one back quickly in the third, as Dambremont netted her second of the game, tucking home a loose puck after the initial shot from Alexie Leclair.

The Sharks, however, were not about to quit.

Left uncovered in front of King, Hayley Chartrand pulled her team to within one, taking a pass from Lapointe with 9:22 remaining in the game.

But that was as close as the Sharks would get, with Urban defenceman Mia DiGiacomantonio thwarting her opponents with some timely poke checks just inside her blue line.

The solid defensive play was needed as the likes of Shaelyn Dupuis and Erica Duckett rushed in waves for the Sharks. Doing a great job of taking away the bottom of the net, Natania King forced the Sharks to try and beat her high, a difficult challenge most of the time.

"We were really close to losing," said King after the game. "We skated hard, so did the other team. It was a really fair game today."

Donning the skates since she was six years old, King made the move between the pipes some four and a half years ago, never looking back.

"I got to try it one time and fell in love with it," she said. "It's like being your own little star. When you do well, it's really appreciated. When you get a shutout, it's like getting a goal."

The second encounter of the morning was equally as close as the Red Dragons improved to 3-5-2, edging the Subway Snipers 3-2.

Breana Crowe, Emily Sauvé and Kiera LeBreton found the back of the net for the winners, with Olivia Gingras, Isabelle Moreau and Sauvé earning assists.

Lauren Shelegey and Breana Potvin replied in a losing cause, with Danika Potvin, Kyla Vaillancourt and Meghan Beaudry hitting the scoresheet with helpers.

The North Stars recorded their fifth win in the final contest, stopping the Bruins 3-1.
