Day 2 of the 2 Nations Cup for Sportop Midget AAs

BRAMPTON, ON — The Sportop Midget AA Queens entered day two of the Two Nations Cup with a 1-1 record facing the Brantford Ice Cats in another tight game. After two scoreless periods, the Ice Cats finally broke the tie scoring a couple quick goals early in the third. Alexis Paddington responded for her side, scoring after being setup by Gaby Andreacchi but it would be as close as the Queens got to a comeback, losing 2-1. 

The Queens went on to play Pembina Valley at 5:00pm on Saturday. Another tightly checked game. The first goals didn't come until the second period when Paddington opened the scoring for the Queens but Pembina tied it just 70 seconds later. The Queens took the lead again after Reese Coffey scored off a feed from Darbie Mattson but Pembina had an answer again, tying it at two in the third which was the final goal of the game. 2-2 tie.

The Queens finish the 2 Nations Cup with a 1-2-1 record, all tight games (3-2, 2-1, 2-1, 2-2).

Sportop Midget AAs at 2 Nations Cup

BRAMPTON, ON — This weekend the Sportop Midget AA Queens are in Brampton, Ontario for the Two Nations Cup. 

On day one, the Queens got things started against Station Six Fire from Halifax who scored the lone goal in the first period to give them a 1-0 lead. Early in the second though, the Queens tied the game on an Alexis Paddington goal (assisted by Sarah Grieve). Station Six took another one-goal lead in the period but Brenna Nicol would tie it back up three minutes later on a play setup by Kendra Fortin and Reese Coffey. 2-2 after two. In the third period, Alexis Paddington got her second goal of the game, along with Coffey and Grieve earning their second assists of the game, to take a 3-2 lead which would hold up as the game winner. 3-2 final. 

The Midget AAs also had a late game at 9:45pm against the Niagara Rapids which they lost 2-1, the lone goal coming off the stick of Kailey Swerhun after a series of plays made by Sarah Grieve and Jada Leblanc. There may have been more to report but the Queens had three goals called back. Despite the Queens outshooting and feeling like they outplayed their opponents, the bounces did not go their way.

Saturday, the Queens will take on the Brantford Ice Cats at 11:15am.

Sportop Queens Take On Ottawa 67s

WINNIPEG, MB — The Sportop Midget AA Queens finished up the Junior Women’s Hockey League Weekend Invitational with one last game against the Ottawa 67s. Both goalies went perfect through the first period with the first goal of the game not coming until late in the second. Alexis Paddington and Brenna Nicol battled for a puck along the wall and Paddington was able to walk out with the puck into the slot and backhand a shot up high past the Ottawa goalie. 1-0 after two. 

In the third, the 67s potted three straight goals to go up 3-1. Less than a minute after their third goal though, a dumped-in puck would be stopped behind the Ottawa net by their goalie. Sibley Duckert pounced on the opportunity muscling a defenceman off the puck and firing the puck from behind the goal line into the back of the goalie’s leg and into the net to cut the lead to one. Unfortunately, that’s as close as the Queens would get to coming back as the Ottawa 67s would add two more late goals, dropping the Queens by a score of 5-2. 

All in all a very good weekend for the Midget AAs, a younger team at the tournament, going 2-2 in four very close games.
