Submitted By Dave Tiffin on Thursday, February 6, 2020
     On Jan. 30-Feb. 2 the Wingham/Lucknow Midget girls team travelled to Vaughan Sports Village to particiapate in the 24th annual Brampton Cougars Friendship Festival tournament. First game at 12 noon Friday Jan. 30th vs.Ilderton Jets.  The girls were hot right off the start and first two goals by Erica Murray were in the first minute of play.  Final score was 5-0 for our team. 

     They played again that night vs. St. Thomas Panthers. This was an exciting game and the girls played together as a team and the winning goal by McKenna Bross in the last :43 seconds of the game made it a 1-0 final score. Saturday night we played again vs. Ilderton Jets.  The girls were passing and setting each other up like we have never seen before.  With their determination they walked away with a 2-0 win.  Halle Hogg and McKenna Hickling got the goals.  This put the team into the championship game vs. St. Thomas.  The girls nerves were a on edge as we had played them before.  St. Thomas scored in the first period for a 1-0 lead.  The Wingham/Lucknow girls didn’t give up and kept their hard shots on net.  Halle Hogg got the first goal and 3 minutes later Megan Metske got another.  This put the team in the lead 2-0.  The girls kept strong and played defensive hockey making the final score 2-1 to win the Gold Championship game.  Both goalies, Michelle Angst and Skylar Murray, were reconized by the tournament organizers for their shutout games.  This was a great bonding weekend on and off the ice and representing our towns that we are very proud of.
     Congratulations to the players and coaches.
