OHSWEKEN – Marlee Montour was marvellous in the Six Nations goal making save-after-save to give her team the confidence needed to take a 3-1 win over the Langton LL #1 team Saturday afternoon at the Gaylord Powless Arena.
Six Nations fell into some good fortune when a Langton defenseman threw his stick towards puck carrier Luke Martin in the Langton zone. The referee immediately called for a penalty shot, which Martin buried to give Six Nations the 1-0 lead.
Langton’s Adam Thomson slipped one along the ice past Montour to even the score at 1-1 in the third. Hunter Tobicoke pounced on a rebound in front of the Langton net and made no mistake as he gave Six Nations the lead back, 2-1.
But probably the nicest goal of the game came with 1:11 remaining when speedy Jade Hill swooped in on the right side unassisted and found a tiny opening between Langton netminder Dylan Boyd and the post with a close in backhander fit for the highlight real.
