Gridlink Midget A Queens Flawless So Far in Chicago

CHICAGO, IL — The Gridlink Midget A Queens compete this week at the 2020 Chicago Girls Winter Classic in the U19-A division and started off strong against the Wyoming Selects. The opening period was tight as Thunder Bay outshot Wyoming 8-7 but both teams were held goalless. 

In the second, the Queens finally broke the goose egg as Alessia Ricciardi put the puck onto the stick of Natasha Lawson who’d bury the game’s opening goal, and only goal of the period where the Queens flung 12 pucks at Wyoming’s net to their 7. 

In the third period the Queens extend the lead after Bria Filice put home a setup feed from Haley Wrigley and on the powerplay, Captain Caitlyn McGuire found Emma Johnston alone in a dangerous spot who’d score to make it 3-0 Queens. Goalie Camryn Williams stopped all 20 shots she faced, leading the Bantam AAs to a 3-0 victory. 

Game two, the Queens found themselves up against host Chicago Bruins. After edging Chicago in shots 8-7 in the period, neither the Queens nor the Bruins could find the back of the net. In the second, Emma Johnston popped in the first of the game, second goal in as many games, to give Thunder Bay a 1-0 lead. In third Kayla Stein extended the lead to two. Camryn Williams earned her second straight shutout stopping 25 shots en route to a 2-0 win.

The Queens face-off against the San Diego Jr Gulls Sunday at 10:30am. Sunday afternoon and Monday’s games are to be determined.

Sportop Midget AAs Reach Semis 

THUNDER BAY, ON — After rocking their opponents by a combined score of 15-1 in their first two games, the Sportop Midget AA Queens found some tough competition Saturday morning in the form of the LU Thunderwolves. The Queens scored just 4:45 into the game after Olivia Nicholl fed a pass to Darbie Mattson who’d score. 1-0 after one. In the second, Kailey Swerhun got on the game sheet with goal to extend the lead to two. The Thunderwolves pressed to get back into the game but netminder Reese Keating kept her shutout streak going to two games as she helped the Midget AA blank the Thunderwolves 2-0. 

That evening, the AAs put their sparkling record up against the Thunder Bay Fury. The Queens exploded in the first with four goals coming from Reese Coffey, Olivia Nicholl and pair from Kailey Swerhun. Brenna Nicol drew 3 assists in the period. Nicol also scored the 5th and final goal of the game in a 5-0 shutout win for Mykaila George

Meanwhile, the 0-1-1 Gridlink Midget A Queens looked to get into the win column, starting their Saturday against the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints. After the Saints scored the only goal in the first period, Alessia Ricciardi tied the game (Victoria Arnone drew an assist) but the Saints regained the lead just 82 seconds later. Both team’s goalies stood tall as the game ended 2-1 for St. Thomas. 

Saturday evening, the Midget As still sought that elusive “W” and looked to take it out on the Thunderhawks. Emma Johnston got things rolling with the sole first period goal and Sidney Hiscox extended the lead in the second, sniping after being setup by Mylee Zechner and Amber Yesno-Linklater on the play. Goalie Camryn Williams defended the 2-0 lead and got some run support as Johnston would pot her second of the game and then in a 42-second span Ricciardi setup Yesno-Linklater for the Queens fourth goal and then also setup Johnston for her hattrick goal and to put the Queens up 5-0 (Caitlyn McGuire and Sidney Hiscox also were awarded with helpers). 5-0 final. 

On Sunday, the Midget AAs make it into the final four. Schedule is currently TBD.

Day One of the Confederation College Thunderhawks Invitational

THUNDER BAY, ON — Friday night kicked off night one of the Confederation College Thunderhawks Invitation Tournament for both the Sportop Midget AA and Gridlink Midget A Queens teams. 

The Midget AAs started with a bang against the Manitoba Northstars as Kendra Fortin and Sarah Grieve both scored early on to jump the Queens out in front. The goals kept coming with Saige MacLeod and Brenna Nicol sniping in the second to give Thunder Bay a 4-0 lead, Sibley Duckert and Olivia Cava kept up the 2-goals per period pace in the third and Reese Keating kept her net spotless as the Queens coasted to a 6-0 victory. 

In their second game of the day, taking on the host Thunderhawks, as Gaby Andreacchi opened the scoring and then scored again to make it 2-0 and Sarah Grieve also found the back of the net. 3-0 after the first. In the second, Confederation College got one back but the Queens responded with six of their own as Grieve notched a couple more, completing her hattrick, Saige MacLeod also put up a pair, and the Queens also got goals from Kendra Fortin and Brenna Nicol. 9-1 final. 

The Midget AA Queens will take on the LU Thunderwolves tomorrow morning at 10:30am and then the Thunder Bay Fury at 7:45pm. 

Meanwhile, the Midget As took on the Thunder Bay Fury to open up their tournament in a very tight matchup as the game went scoreless through two. The Queens finally got on the board after Captain Caitlyn McGuire setup Alessia Ricciardi who’d score to give the Queens a 1-0 lead. Goalie Camryn Williams had been perfect up to this point but Fury player Isabella Carangi would break the shutout bid, and scoring the eventual game tying goal in a 1-1 draw. 

In the evening, they took on the Fort Frances Muskies. Both teams were held off the game sheet until the second when the Muskies scored twice. Fort Frances would manage another couple of goals, eventually dropping the Queens to a 4-0 score in a game that had a combined 28 penalty minutes served. 

Tomorrow, the Midget A Queens will take on the St. Thomas Saints at noon before meeting the host Thunderhawks at 7:00pm.
