Sportop Midget AA Queens Keep Lighting the Lamp at Female World Sport School Challenge

WINNIPEG, MB — Following up on their 8-0 win, the The Sportop Midget AA Queens looked to stay on a roll in the Female World Sport School Challenge, and they would against the Pilot Mound Buffaloes. 

Brenna Nicol opened the scoring unassisted and Alexis Paddington followed up shortly after to make it 2-0 with Darbie Mattson drawing an assist. Before the first period closed, Sarah Grieve would get the puck over to Kailey Swerhun who’d score with one second left! 3-0 after one. 

In the second, Jada LeBlanc and Reese Coffey’s unassisted goals just 9 kept the red light hot. LeBlanc and Gaby Andreacchi’s play with the puck would lead to finding Paddington in front who’d score her second of the game and Sarah Grieve finished up the scoring in the second with Nicol and Swerhun credited with assists. The Queens’ shutout bid would be spoiled with a single goal from Pilot Mound in the third. Nevertheless, a 7-1 win. 

As well as the Queens had played (2-1 record, outscoring opponents 18-4), the one-goal loss left them playing for 5th place against the Rockey Mountain Raiders. 

The Raiders scored 38 seconds in to put the Queens against the ropes and notched a second goal to make it 2-0. The Sportop Queens rallied with a powerplay goal off the stick of Brenna Nicol from Kendra Fortin and Alexis Paddington. In the second, Fortin tied the game after being setup by Nicol but Rocky Mountain regained the lead on the powerplay. The Raiders would get another powerplay early in the third but just 56 seconds into the period, Fortin would clear the puck up to Paddington who’d go in and score shorthanded to tie the game at three. Regulation time would come and go with no further goals as would overtime, so it went down to the shootout where Sarah Grieve ended up sniping the game winner. 4-3 final.

Sportop Midget AA Queens Open up Female World Sport School Challenge

WINNIPEG, MB — The Sportop Midget AA Queens are in Winnipeg this week competing in the Female World Sport School Challenge. In their opening game, they took on the Edmonton Pandas who opened the scoring early on then added to their lead before Jill Calder would put the Queens on the board after being setup by Alexis Paddington and Jada LeBlanc. Both goalies were perfect in the second leading to a run on goal scoring in the third. The Pandas extended their lead just 39 seconds in on the powerplay before Brenna Nicol would bring it back to within one (Kailey Swerhun and LeBlanc with the assists). Edmonton once again capitalized on the powerplay but Alexis Paddington would close the gap again with a Queens powerplay goal after Nicol and Kendra Fortin would get Alexis the puck in a dangerous spot. Unfortunately for the Queens, they couldn’t find the equalizer. Edmonton takes it 4-3. 

With rebounding on the mind, the Queens brought their ‘A’ game against Eastman Selects, jumping out to a quick lead on three goals from Sarah Grieve (assists to Kailey Swerhun and Brenna Nicol), Olivia Cava (from Sibley Duckert and Saige MacLeod), and Alexis Paddington (Gaby Andreacchi and Jill Calder). The second period nearly went goalless if not for Nicol burying an unassisted shorthanded goal. 4-0 after two. 

In the third, the goals came in droves again. Paddington notched her second goal, as well as her hat trick goal as part of a 4-point game. Jill Calder also sniped twice in her 4-point effort. Gaby Andreacchi lead the Queens also with 3 primary assists. While given plenty of run support, goalie Mykaila George worked for her shutout, turning aside 24 shots in the 8-0 drubbing.
