MADISON, WI — After back-to-back 7-0 wins at the CanAm Challenge Cup on Friday, the Gridlink Midget A Queens looked to keep their sparkling record against the Lady Lancers on Saturday afternoon. Sibley Duckert broke open the scoring (from Caitlin Olinski and Kayla Stein) for the only goal of the first period. Kaitlyn Intini’s goal of a play from Sarah Grieve extended the lead early into the second. Emma Johnston scored to make it 3-0 before helping to setup a goal by Grieve.
