SURREY, B.C – Team Ontario Red won the gold medal game for the sixth straight time Sunday at the National Women’s Under-18 Championship in Surrey, B.C.

The defending champions beat Ontario Blue 5-1 at South Surrey Arena. It marked the first time that Team Ontario Blue made it to the final.

Jamie Lee Rattray (Kanata, Ont.) opened up the scoring for Team Ontario Red 14 seconds into the period to set the pace for the remainder of the game. She then put the puck on the stick of Jenna McParland (Schreiber, Ont.), who found the back of the net and made it 2-0 going into the intermission.

 

Shannon Stoneburgh (Pickering, Ont.) put Ontario Red up 3-0 at 4:13 of the second period but Ontario Blue came back with a goal of its own on a Vanessa Welten (Crysler, Ont.) shot at 10:17 to make it 3-1 moving into the third period.

Ontario Red scored twice more in the final frame to secure another championship, with Rattray assisting on goals by Shannon Doyle (Baldwin, Ont.) and Jenna McParland (Schreiber, Ont.) to secure the final 5-1 score.

The game was watched by close to 1,000 fans in Surrey, along with a national TV audience on TSN2. The game will be broadcast on tape delay on RDS. Check local listings for the game time in your area.
