ST. ALBERT, Alta. – The Notre Dame Hounds (West) have won the 2011 Esso Cup, Canada’s National Female Midget Championship, defeating the Edmonton Thunder (Pacific) 5-2 in the gold medal game Saturday night at the Performance Arena in Servus Place.

The Hounds took silver at the 2010 Esso Cup and are one of only two teams to make more than one appearance at Canada’s National Female Midget Championship. The Thunder have competed in the Esso Cup for three straight years, finishing fourth in 2009 in Calgary, Alta., and taking bronze at the 2010 Esso Cup in Regina, Sask. The 2011 Esso Cup marks the third annual National Female Midget Championship.

Earlier Saturday, the Toronto Aeros (Ontario) blanked the Lac St-Louis Kodiaks (Québec) 4-0 to take home the bronze medal. Victoria Andreakos (Aurora, Ont.), Caitlin Maikawa (Markham, Ont.), Jordan McDonell (Toronto, Ont.) and Lauren Wildfang (Waterdown, Ont.) all scored and Taylor Hough (Toronto, Ont.) earned the shutout.
