Calgary Flyers to Host 2009 Esso Cup

One team down, four to go.

The Calgary Flyers have become the first team to qualify for the 2009 Esso Cup, earning the right to host the first-ever National Women’s Midget Championship after defeating the Calgary Bruins 2-1 in overtime on Wednesday night in Game 3 of their best-of-five South Division semifinal.

The series sweep means the Flyers are the last remaining Calgary team in the Alberta Major Midget Female Hockey League, and therefore will host four regional champions from across Canada at Max Bell Arena in Calgary from April 19-25.

The Flyers had received a first-round bye after winning the South Division regular season title with a league-best 24-6-2 record, while the Bruins had swept the other Calgary hopeful, the Chaos, in a first-round series.

After a pair of three-goal wins to give themselves a commanding 2-0 series lead, the Flyers found themselves trailing 1-0 late in the third period of Game 3. That’s when captain Erin Lally took over, tying the game with less than two minutes to go in regulation before scoring the game-winner 4:03 into the extra frame.
