KE Reivers claim Division 3 Championship Title.

Congratulations to the KE Reivers, the 2017-18 Hire Marketing Division 3 Champions.

After finishing fourth in regular season, The KE Reivers defeated the WKC Wolverines and the first-ranked, CPET Canadiennes to face the third ranked Glenlawn Lions in the division Championship series. In game one, the KE Reivers narrowly defeated the Lions 3-2 (S0). In an absolutely thrilling game two, both teams played to win. In the first period, the Reivers opened the scoring after the half way mark with a goal at 10:04 (Tetrault, Ducharme, Young), and the Lions answered that goal at 4:11 (Leonard, Barr, Halliday). Score 1-1. In the second period the Reivers, opened the scoring again at 13:30 (Baptiste, Goulet), and the Lions’ Fallyn Mitchell answered with a runaway goal at 12:18. For the remainder of the period, both teams tried to find the back of the net, but the goaltenders skillfully defended them. With six seconds left on the clock, the Reivers’ Ducharme broke away from the pack to score the final goal of the period. Reivers ahead 3-2. In the third period, the Reivers opened the scoring a third time with a goal at 18:58 (Baptiste, Rolland, Fontaine). Given the incredible effort of both teams, it looked as though the rest of the period might be scoreless with goaltenders shutting down chances on both nets. Then the Reivers Baptiste, on a quick pass from Hinds, found the net, earning a hat-trick and a commanding 5-2 lead for her team. With six minutes left on the clock, a Lions comeback seemed unlikely, but determined to win, the Lions turned up the heat – drawing two penalties at 3:13 – and it was a new game. The Lions pulled the goalie for a six on three rush finding the back of the net at 2:10 (Deck, Cyrenne, Leonard); score Reivers 5-3. Still on the power play, the Lions rushed the net again, drawing a third Reivers penalty and a second power play goal at 1:05 (Sawyer, Deck, Cyrenne). With one minute left, the Lions leaned in again, hoping for a third goal, but they did not find the net again. Final score Reivers 5-4.
