The Stoney Creek Junior Sabres extended their winning streak in the Provincial Women’s Hockey League to eight games on Tuesday night with a shut out victory in Burlington. The Junior Sabres have outscored their opponents 30-6 in the eight game stretch, blanking their opponents in five of eight games. The victory improves Stoney Creek’s record to 17-6-2 with the squad now in a three-way tie for second place in the league.
Vanessa Upson got the scoring started for Stoney Creek midway thru the first period. With the team on the advantage after Burlington’s Tijana Miskovic getting slapped with an interference penalty, Upson found the back of the net at 12:34 of the period. The goal was Upson’s sixth goal of the season.
The one goal lead would last until the end of the period but the Sabres weren’t done on the score sheet just yet. 4:26 into the middle frame, Ancaster native Emma Biordano notched her second goal of the season to double Stoney Creek’s lead. That goal was followed up less than ten minutes later when Hamilton native Alyssa Kawa lit the goal lamp at 13:11. The goal was Kawa’s eleventh goal of the season.
Stoney Creek finished the game with a 3-0 shut out victory.
Between the pipes Megan Warrener turned away all 15 shots she faced. Stoney Creek’s offence blasted Burlington’s netminder Tia Glube with 34 shots.
Next up the Junior Sabres will begin a three game homestead starting on Friday night. Stoney Creek will welcome the Waterloo K-W Rangers to the Gateway Ice Centre starting at 8:35pm.
