Eagles win third straight

The Peninsula Eagles had taken over top spot in the female Island league and were going for the league banner. The Hurricanes were fighting for their playoff lives with this the final game of the league schedule.

The Hurricanes and the Eagles came out fast in the first period but it was the goaltenders that stole the show.

The Hurricanes were trying to defend a one goal lead but with just under three minutes to go the Eagles scored on a goal mouth scramble to tie it at 2-2.

With just over a minute to go, the Hurricanes took back the lead. With our win the Victoria Ice Hawks took first place and the Banner, the Hurricanes were then tied with Juan De Fuca for fourth place.

Unfortunately the tie break goes to JDF and leaves them out of the playoffs.
