Heartbreak loss for Lightning squad in Tournament Final
Submitted By Scott Thompson on Tuesday, March 10, 2015
The U16B-Thompson team was in tough against some very good teams playing in the Niagara Falls Daredevils tournament over the March 6-8 weekend. Making the most of their offensive opportunities, the Lightning found scoring throughout their line up as they posted 6 goals or more in each contest they played to go undefeated during round robin play. 

Facing host Niagara Falls Daredevils in the final, the Lightning gave up an early goal however Serena Perera tied the score 30 seconds later. The Daredevils retook the lead a minute later, but the Lightning’s Allie Tuzi tied the score less than a minute after. Rachael Angaran gave the Lightning their first lead with 7 minutes remaining in the half with Danielle Pelletier adding to the lead 15 seconds later. The Daredevils brought the score within a goal to trail 4-3 at the half. Two minutes into the second frame the Daredevils tied the score at 4. With just over 9 minutes remaining the Daredevils took the lead, however the Lightning responded 10 seconds later with a goal from Elizabeth White. The Daredevils jumped ahead one minute later but the Lightning continued to battle with Amy Thompson scoring with just over three and half minutes remaining in the game to tie the score at 6. Unfortunately, fate was not kind to the Lightning on this particular day as the Daredevils were awarded a goal when it was ruled that an ineligible Lightning player blocked a shot in the crease with just over two and half minutes to play. The Lightning were not able to recover and went on to lose 8-6 to finish as silver medallists.

Madison Sandercock netted a pair of goals in both games with Clare Palmer adding a single in each contest. Brienne Paterson added a pair of goals against Pickering and Darcy Woods a single against Cambridge.
