The Northland Dodge Northern Female Midget AAA Cougars completed a successful league weekend of home games in Prince George Jan. 17-19.
The Northern Cougars played the West Coast Avalanche three times, winning all three and taking six out of six possible points.
Both teams were in a battle for second place in the league, however, the results now place the Northern Cougars decisively in second place in the six-team B.C. Hockey Female Major Midget League standings.
Friday the Cougars beat the Avalanche, 4-1, with Williams Lake players defenceman Chantelle Beadman-Rolph and assistant captain Tessa Hare scoring in the winning effort.
Saturday the Cougars downed the Avalanche, 3-1, in a close game, before edging the team once more, 4-3, Sunday morning with Hare, again, tallying in the win.
Coaches Mario Desjardins and Stew Malgunas said they were pleased with the team’s performance in all three games.
“The Avalanche brought their ‘A’ game for the weekend and we responded effectively,” Desjardins said.
The Northern Cougars now have a two-week break before travelling to a showcase tournament in Langley from Feb. 7-10.
