Three days of rock and roll by the Fort Frances Super 8 PeeWee girls’ hockey team concluded with the squad being forced to sing the blues.
The Stonewall Blues rolled to a 7-1 victory in the bronze-medal game of the 15th-annual Skate by the Lake tournament co-hosted by Kenora and Keewatin over the weekend.
The Blues used a four-goal second period to lead 5-1 and coasted to the win from there.
Abbi Perrault had Fort Frances’ lone goal in the contest.
Super 8 bombed the Portage Terriers Peewees 9-0 in their opener.
Madisyn Degagne put on a tour de force performance with five goals while Claire Tibbs, Cassandra Moffitt, Myla Angus, and Amber Jourdain added singles.
Perrault and Moffitt also had three assists each while Shanleigh Fryer earned the shutout in goal.
The Kenora Black Blades blanked Super 8 3-0 in the Fort squad’s next outing, scoring all three goals in the final 75 seconds of each period.
Super 8 rebounded with a 5-0 whitewash of Kenora McDonald’s (no goal scorers available), but then lost a tight semi-final matchup with Winnipeg’s Dakota Lazers by a 4-3 margin in overtime.
Down 3-1 entering the third, Super 8 received goals from Jourdain (her second of the game) and Sara Angus to tie the game.
But with 2:50 remaining in the extra session, Madi Arpin broke Fort Frances’ hearts with the game-winner.
